‘’The ISO 50015 & IPMVP training was very useful both on knowledge and practical perspective. The trainer brilliantly covered all the topics including the synergy between the IPMVP and the ISO standard, supplementing theory with practical experience. The course was full of examples, explaining the ISO terminologies and processes whilst balancing the expectations of wide variety of attendees ranging from M&V managers to EM&T software developers. I would definitely recommend this particular ISO 50015 course for anyone who would like to bring their knowledge of the international standards on M&V up to date. ‘’
