When A Classroom Course Makes Sense
When a company is competing for a contract, and needs to get staff credentialed with the PMP certification to satisfy a prospective client, tens of millions of dollars and dozens of jobs can easily be at stake.
In such a situation the cost of a classroom course for PMP exam prep can seem rather secondary. Assurance that the class is going to be successful is what really matters.
Our instructor Bill Baxter has taught many of these 4-day bootcamp courses using his course materials — every one of them a great success. We have many satisfied former students who will be happy to serve as a reference and attest to that.
