Testimonials :

“We would like to thank Bahjat for the excellent PMP training provided. The classes were inspiring and insightful. The trainer delivered the comprehensive knowledge of PMBOK in an understandable manner and illustrated the content with practical examples from his own extensive work experience in organizations from the private and non-governmental sector and in different PM knowledge areas. The trainer gave room for discussion and questions during the class, which made the classes both effective in terms of preparing for the exam and enjoyable at the same time. Taking the course at Ritaj with Bahjat was a definite gain for our professional development. The communication with Ritaj regarding the course was smooth and helpful. Ritaj provided an individual PMP training package tailored to our needs (English as language of instruction, and a flexible schedule to accommodate other commitments). Therefore, we would like to thank Ritaj for offering this unique learning opportunity to us.”

My visit to Sinokrot Global Group gave me a chance to link the concepts within the PMP training with the outside world, it also gave me a valued practical experience. It was radiant, educational, and entertaining experience, the field visit was a success. After the trip I realized that everything I've learned in ritaj till now was very useful, I will never forget this experience (and I don't think I can) because honestly it changed me for the better. Thank you so much Ritaj.

Self-approval comes out of self-acceptance, which rises out of the recognition that we are, in fact, enough, just as we are. With that recognition, we can free ourselves from fear; we no longer need to look outside for a validation that, on the inside is self-evident. We come into our power, our full humanity, in the recognition that our essential nature is all we need to be fully us.
