Illia Chmut

Project Management Teacher

I’ve been working in IT since 2007, and since 2013 I’ve been engaged in Project Management. I’ve gone from developer to team lead to Project Manager, worked for both product companies and commissioned work (outsource and outstaff). I love my job for the ability to organize professional teams, help achieve the set goals, and make clients happier. In my free time I travel, play football, and ski in the winter. I absolutely adore learning new things and sharing my experience.

The course passed easily and free of hassle. The teacher always supported us and answered any questions we had, even those which weren't really planned for the course.
