“Would have taken months to learn alone. ”

The PMP Certification has been a goal of mine for a while now, but the whole process was intimidating. After hearing praise from a past student, I gave the Persimmon group a try. It was information that would have taken months to learn alone. I highly recommend this class. I could not have done it without my coach!

“Excellent Study tools & Real-world Examples.”

This PMP Exam Prep course not only provided excellent study tools, but the instructor provided real-world examples of the variety of complexities and nuanced terms and theories the PMBOK® Guide defines. This allowed for easier memorization and application of the terms and theories in the daily role as a Project Manager.
