What is a virtual Persimmon event like?2021-08-27T18:21:38-05:00

We know you’ll love our virtual learning experiences! Just like a physical classroom, you’ll see and speak to your instructor, participate in discussions and small group activities, and follow along in a writable PDF workbook so you can take notes and reference them later.

Your instructor will also be available to you between sessions and after the course to answer questions, PLUS you’ll get access to electronic copies of all the documents we recommend you use to keep your projects on track.

What platform do you use for virtual courses?2021-08-27T18:20:33-05:00

The Persimmon Group uses Zoom for all learning events, with multiple security protocols in place to ensure a safe and private event. Zoom allows you to participate on the web (without downloading additional software) if desired.

Do I have to have the title “project manager” to benefit from the classes?2021-08-02T06:06:57-05:00

Absolutely not! Our beginner’s and intermediate courses are designed with a wide variety of professionals in mind. However, our advanced classes are tailored to professional project managers with at least 5 years of experience.

Do you offer custom project management training?2021-08-02T06:07:29-05:00

Yes. Persimmon recognizes that not every organization is the same. That’s why we love working with our customers to develop and build custom Project Management courses to address your unique needs. We design instructor-led, live virtual, and self-paced eLearning in a variety of project management domains.
