The class was great! I recommend this class 100% to anyone preparing for the certification exam. These instructors have all been in the project management field for years and have a thorough understanding of the material and present it extremely well! I really don't think I would have passed the PMP® exam had I not taken this course. It was top notch!

— Keri J. Garrett, PMP

I have passed the PMP® and firmly believe I would not have without this class. I also firmly believe that the one week boot camp, would have not done me as well. I think the pace is great and the classrooms are perfect to aid in digesting this material. I would definitely recommend (and have) this class to others!
