What People Say About the Certification Event

"I appreciate this course, it was very helpful! I am a member of an agency that uses rather than a consultant, but the content was still useful to get more familiar with the platform's capabilities."

"I thought everything was great. I learned quite a bit and plan to implement these learnings within the next few weeks."

I work for the local government and at times we use private consultants for projects. It was good to see that there is training and certification available and will recommend this certification course for sure!"

"Many of my local government clients use PublicInput so this was extremely helpful in getting to know your platform."
