Testimonials

With PMP being my first certification exam, I wanted the interaction and clarification of content that an instructor provides. The CertWise 5-week online course gave me access to an instructor with a deep understanding of PMP concepts and applications and who was able to successfully prepare me for the PMP exam. The course materials saved time, providing an apt summary of the voluminous PMBOK Guide. I also valued the online pre-test, post-test and practice exam. I was committed to passing the PMP exam on my first attempt, and I did! Sylvia A.

I had taken a boot camp course with a different provider and didn’t think I had gotten the information I needed in order to pass the PMP exam. After taking this CertWise course with a longer overview and a work at your own pace approach I was able to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. With a big help from the flash cards, that I printed out and studied, I was able to pass the PMP exam on my first attempt. Brian E.

The content in this course is more in-depth than other materials I’ve used, and my instructor really cared about my success. When I took the PMP exam, I felt very prepared and realized pretty early on that I was going to pass. I felt calm and confident throughout. Anne K.

The Learning System for PMP® Exam Preparation is a great choice for PMP candidates because it offers what other programs can’t: a complete, self-contained, instructor-supported program that is backed by a large, reputable company with a great industry track-record. Kris Allen, PMP, PE
