"The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows"- Sydney. J. Harris

Let me tell you about my experience at mbh training. I was first introduced to mbh training by attending the certificate iv in project management course. The first thing I noticed was how broad the industries were amongst the students. There were projects managers from industries such as construction, community services, and information technology all in the class (that's a whole lot of knowledge and experience in one room!).

So how did this help me with my project management course?

First of all, prior to this course, I didn't have any experience with project management, like a few of the students did (and I wasn't alone). I was fresh to this industry, so there was a lot to take in. I found it so intriguing listening to the experiences of the other students. The trainer (Jack Peck) delivered the course in such an engaging way, I always looked forward to coming to each course day, his experiences also helped me with the course. The course structure and the way he related most of the learning outcomes with his own experience in the industry, gave myself and the students, real life example and situations where we could apply the knowledge that he passed onto us.

Towards the end of the course, I found a good balance of information, knowledge and experiences. The way a course and education should be delivered.

So why not turn those mirrors into windows...
