I came to know of Koenig through a friend, at a time when I was looking to develop my skills in both Project Management and IT Service Management. Thankfully, Koenig’s portfolio includes two courses aimed at that, and at a very competitive price. The courses I have enrolled for was CAPM and ITIL 2011 Foundation.
The experience was good from the first contact. I always got a very fast response to my every email, and the whole administrative process was painless and straight forward.
Arriving in Dubai, I was received by friendly and professional staff, as part of the complimentary pick up service. Once at the hotel, I met the exceptionally helpful caretaker, Mr. Sanjay, who ensured that any issues I had, where quickly resolved.
I stayed at the Al Yassat Gloria Apartments in Tecom. A very good 4 stars hotel with all the necessary facilities, including a gym and swimming pool and excellent transport links. The metro station is literally a stone throw from the hotel.
As for the training centre itself, it was good, clean and functional, with the excellent bonus of having free coffee!
The instructor was phenomenal and I was impressed by his depth and breadth of knowledge on the entire material. From the beginning, it was obvious that he knew what was important for the exam; however, we had plenty of opportunity to go further, and see how things related to my actual work experience.
As I see it, the pace is fast. You can make it, but be ready to be tested both physically and mentally. An extra day would be highly beneficial.
Nevertheless, my instructor did everything and used every tool he knew of in order to prepare me to pass those exams, and I did. In the end, it was more of a formality really, because, to me, the real benefit was in what I was able to learn during the course. And it was a lot.
I had this review coming a long way, and I cannot thank my trainer enough for all the time and effort in ensuring that everything went smoothly. I strongly feel that the experience transcends the course and stretches all the way to all the great friendships I was able to make during that short journey. To me that is the essence of this fantastic experience.
