what some of our students had to say
“I was one of Vanguard’s students for the PMP® prep course. The teaching style of the instructor was very engaging, and he used both great examples and also humor to help make the main points memorable. He went 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!”
“I took Vanguards’ PMP® class and they did a great job. The instructor taught with passion and commitment. He was 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.”
“This course is everything that it is advertised to be. As long as you stick to the plan outlined by Vanguards, you’ll pass the PMP® exam on your first try.
