A good stepping stone in anyone's career
As a former student completing the PMP course, I can say I was very impressed with each of the lecturers. The level of knowledge and form of explaining the PMI implementation in a day to day project environment was very helpful.
Excellent course content, presenter and preparation for exam
We had a small class from different backgrounds; HR, IT, Sales, Product Owner. I highly recommend them and they offer considerable value add. Had a query and the head of course (was not expecting it) took a short phone call out of hours so that will tell you the customer mantra. Go for it!
Great course, structure, content and lectures
An excellent distance learning experience giving the challenging times we have.
Recommendable PMP course
The PMP Certification training was very good. The admin were very helpful and the course content was really good.
Real value for the money
Just went through the PMP course and loved it. It adds real value for the money.
