Client Testimonials - Project Vanguards


"I was one of Sean's students for the PMP prep course. His teaching style is very engaging, and he uses both great examples and also humor to help make the main points memorable. He goes out of his way to make sure you have all the tools you need to be successful on the test. Most importantly, he helped me pass the PMP exam on my first try!"

- Samuel Hutchins, Project Manager/Operations Manager/ Contract Manger

"I took Sean’s class for the purpose of obtaining my PMP certification. His teaching style is engaging, and really clarified the material and helped me understand how it all comes together. The materials he uses for his course are clear and concise, and the audio materials helped keep me in the PMP zone when I didn’t have time to study by just listening in the car. His study tips and application suggestions were very beneficial, and I am happy to say I have obtained my PMP certification on the first try!"

- Joanne Meyers, Digital Analyst at Valassis Digital

"Folks, Sean runs a no-nonsense, excellent course for PMP candidates. It is a truly well planned course which will make you work, but it will also build up your understanding of PMI practices and standards to the level you need to get the certification! Everyone in our class passed the exam on a first try, myself included 🙂 "

- Jerry S.

"I was soooo nervous about taking this class because I am not a project manager by profession. But this credential is so valuable that if you want to get ahead (and have job security) you practically have to have it if you want to stay ahead. So, after I heard about this class and its 100% exam pass rate, I decided it was my best shot. So I took the deep plunge into the world project management professional's. And after listening to my instructor, who was so helpful and willing do whatever it took to help me pass this exam, and following the course layout, I worked and worked on the assignments until I finally felt ready for the exam. I took the exam, and two minutes after I finished I got my results, and I PASSED! I would recommend this course to anyone, especially to those who are like me and don't have a strong project management background. If you're like me, willing and determined to pass this test, then this is the class for you! A+++++ all the way!!!"

"This course is everything that it is advertised to be. As long as you stick to the plan outlined by Sean, you'll pass the PMP exam on your first try. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about getting their PMP certification. I also plan to take the Project Vanguard PMI-ACP course next year.

"Project Vanguards training took the PMP and broke it down to where I was able to understand it. After several boot camp style training courses, I did it Sean’s way and I passed the PMP on my first try."

"If you are looking for a PMP course that delivers effective and serious PMP exam preparation then you should choose Project Vanguards! Sean teaches the course using different strategies for class and online instruction that will keep you engaged and entertained…. I guarantee there will never be a dull moment during class. The course offers plenty of resources (book, online resources, flashcards, practice exams and more) that will surely prepare you for the PMP exam. The exam is very challenging, but preparation is key, and if you keep up with the class instruction and follow Sean’s guidance, then you should pass on your first try like I did."

"I am glad that I took the PMP Prep course from Sean. He presented the material better than any instructor that I have had. He has great energy and presents the right amount of material in the right time frame. I followed his curriculum and passed without a problem.

"I remember it like it was yesterday calling to enroll in the PMP prep course and it was Sean on the other end of the phone telling me not to be nervous and that I'll enjoy the class. Boy was he correct! Sean has the ability to breakdown the concepts, principles, and formulas into laymen's terms that anyone can understand regardless of occupation or background. By using great examples and "high octane" positive energy, he takes a course that could otherwise be boring and makes it easy to follow plus engaging. Also
Sean would stay after class for anyone that wanted additional help and responded to group thread questions quickly. I put in the study time and followed the plan and I'm glad to say I passed the first time taking the exam. If you follow the plan laid out by Sean you will have no problem passing an exam prep course taught by him. I highly recommend Sean's courses and I am excited about enrolling in the PMI-ACP course in the spring!

"A friend of mine who had taken this course told me about it, and so after researching it, I signed up. I had high expectations coming into this class because of my friends' recommendation, and I have to say, my expectations were met and then some. The instructor was great at communicating every part of the course, every knowledge area, and was able to explain even the most difficult parts in comprehendible terms. In short, I would HIGHLY recommend this class to anyone and everyone who is serious about getting their PMP. Oh, and I'm not too modest to say that like all the students of this class before me, I passed this monster exam on my first try!!!"

"The PMP Exam Preparation Class offered by Project Vanguards was tremendously helpful in my efforts to learn the material required for the PMP exam. The classes were very convenient for my full-time work schedule and the course is structured in a manner that allows you to learn, understand and apply the material rather than just memorize the PMBOK. I followed my instructor's advice and applied myself throughout the course and was able to pass the PMP exam on my first try. The test was every bit as hard as I thought it would be, but I was successful thanks to Project Vanguards. I would definitely recommend anyone, regardless of their level of project management experience, to take the Project Vanguards PMP Exam Preparation Class if they want to be well prepared to take the PMP exam."

- Mike A.

"I had thought about getting my PMP for a long time now, but I just never had the time. Luckily, the classes taught by Project Vanguards were all taught at times when I didn't have to miss work. All the other places I found taught these boot camp courses or a week-long 8 to 5 course every day, and that just wasn't realistic for me. After the first day in class I knew I had picked the right place to come to for my PMP exam prep. It was all taught sensibly and reasonably that over time the exam seemed less like a mountain and more like a small hill. I would recommend this class to anyone, regardless of their work experience or current profession. Anyone who is determined enough to succeed will receive everything they need and more from this class. I just wish I had known about it sooner. And of course, I passed on my first attempt on the exam. 🙂 "

- Richard K.

"I'm a construction supervisor who wants to get promoted. So after I spoke to my boss he told me I should look into getting this PMP credential, which I had never heard of. So I took the class, and it was definitely for professionals like me who are looking to get ahead, because it wasn't easy. But then, nothing worthwhile ever is either. I cannot say enough great things about the class, from the teacher and the materials, to everyone in the class I took working together and helping each other, to the manageable hours in the evenings when the class was taught, it was a great experience. I'd definitely recommend this to anybody. Worth every penny, and two thumbs up."

- Todd T.

"I had been considering getting my PMP for quite sometime but was hesitant due to the time commitment, the amount of material, and sitting for the exam. A friend of mine who had taken Sean's PMP course and passed the exam introduced me to him and I signed up shortly thereafter. It was the best decision I made Summer 2017. Sean is exciting and engaging, making the subject of project management come alive. I not only had access to some of the best study materials but I also had access to him 24/7. With his study strategies, materials, and instruction I sat for the exam 3 weeks after the course ended and passed scoring above target in all areas. Additionally, since receiving my certification, I have had the pleasure of returning to Sean's class to audit and instruct which has fulfilled the overwhelming majority of the 60 PDU's required of each PMP every 3 years. Doing so has been free of cost and I have had my certification for less than 1 year. Above all, I consider Sean to be both a mentor and friend and if you are looking for a top notch PMP course to prepare you to sit for the exam, choose his. Do as he tells you, put in the work, and you won't regret it!

"I took Sean's class several months ago and he did a great job. He teaches with passion and commitment. He is engaging and keeps your interest the entire time. I followed his guidance, studied as he said, and I passed the PMP exam on the first try."

"I was Sean's student during his 35-hour required PMP course. I would take one of Sean's courses again if given the opportunity.

Sean is truly talented at explaining complex topics in a method that is easy-to-understand and he provides excellent study tips for professionals. I passed the PMP exam in the first try, with above-average in all categories. He really brightens up the classroom with humor and is able to turn dull PMI topics into engaging conversations. He provided excellent study techniques and offered assistance when any person was having issues understanding the material. In addition, Sean introduced me to the local Alamo PMI group as a way to keep up with project management trends and socialize with colleagues in the field. This is definitely the above-average educator that you will likely see in other 35-hour PMP courses.

I cannot recommend a better educator and well-rounded project management professional. If anyone is looking for any PMI certification, I highly recommend Sean over anyone else. If you follow the study techniques and his classes, you will be successful. I obtained my certification on the first try and owe a lot my success to Sean."

"Sean is a fantastic mentor, teacher, and true professional!

I had a privilege to be his PMP student and I must say: he was devoted to the success of everyone in our class!

Experienced businessman, distinguished veteran, and a true scholar! He delivered on all his promises and exhibited excellence every day!


Jerry Sokolov, PMP
Lead Program Manager at USAA

Sean was an excellent instructor who not only made himself available after class to go over any student questions but also gave out his personal number on day one for any student to call him anytime they were struggling on a particular knowledge area.

Unlike other PMP classes I attended in the past, Sean made sure to go over the PMI application process and even help students translate their work experience to PMI verbiage. He presented the material in a clear and concise manner and made sure to highlight high yield areas. I am happy I signed up for his class and was able to pass the PMP exam on my first try!
