"We know how important it is to make that decision to take the class. You're releasing the brakes on your professional potential and making a true commitment to excellence, and it is hard. And we're not going to lie and tell you it's going to be easy, because it's not easy. But then, what worthwhile endeavor, which brings you deep satisfaction in your achievements, is easy? The answer is simple: None. And do not fear the unknown. We will demystify all the mechanisms, formulas, processes, and all, and give you the tools to finish the job: Pass that exam. That's your goal, which makes it our goal, together.

And after you pass the exam, we'll help you maintain your PMP credential with ease. Other companies teach a course, escort you out of the building on the last day, and wish you the best of luck. We, on the other hand, will be working for and with you, for the rest of your career, period."

YES! Here’s a screenshot of the PMP Application where you state the “Role” you played on the project. Notice how many different options there are! You could have only been any one of the following and never even been a Project Manager! There’s even a box for “Other” to be added as a role! Now what are you waiting for? We help you write and submit your entire application on the last day of class, and we’ll stay with you through the entire process. But why would PMI allow most anyone to achieve this invaluable credential? Simple: there are only two sides of business: Day-to-Day Operations and Projects (Investments). Whether you realize it or not, even as an “Administrator,” which is an option below for “Role” by the way, you have contributed to temporary endeavors (projects) that deliver value to your and other organizations. You’ve done work (scope), managed time (schedule), handled costs (budget), and met end-user/customer requirements (quality). You handled uncertainties (risk), analyzed and solved problems (issues), worked with and around contracts (procurements), and you’ve worked with experts (HR) as well as many others (stakeholders identified and engaged). You’ve corresponded with folks (communications) and managed expectations (more stakeholder engagement). You have WAY more experience than you think. And don’t confuse the “role” you played with the “job title” you worked under. Take a look at the second picture below where it later states on your application on any given project to state your “job title.” That’s because many of us who are competent get tasked with efforts outside our job description, therefore, the role you played may not always be congruent with your job title. So, shall we begin this journey together?

This is a great question. The PMP is a credential trademarked by a Non-Profit Organization called the Project Management Institute (PMI). Only certified PMI instructors may teach the PMP courses through their teaching entities (Companies) at Universities/Colleges through what's called "Extended Services" programs. This means that those who wish to take the class pay the company, and the company pays the school per their teaming agreement. The PMP credential is strictly controlled by the PMI, and only allows it to be taught under strict guidelines and rules.
No, none. But we suggest you read this page to get yourself prepare for the class.
Yes, a backpack to carry all your materials. Other than that, we provide everything, including the pens, pencils, highlighters, and paper in addition to all the course materials.
Yes, and we will help you every step of the way to make it so simple you'll wonder why anyone worries about it at all. Remember, if you have not yet passed the PMP exam, then don't worry about maintaining it. Rather, focus on what we have taught and will continue to work with you on in order to pass the exam. Let us do the worrying on your credential maintenance. If you have passed the exam, contact your instructor any time for those tips which will guide you on maintaining your credential, or call our toll free number at 1-888-503-7108.
Yes Vocational Rehabilitation will pay for this class! The Post 9/11 GI Bill is much more difficult, and at present it does not pay for the course. However, the GI Bill DOES pay for the cost of the Exam, which is $400. And it pays for the Exam for both Voc Rehab Veterans and GI Bill Veterans.
YES! See BillMeLater from PayPal now! Caveat: It may take up to 30 minutes for the folks at PayPal to process your BillMeLater payment, so don't try to pay more than once! If you do, don't worry, we can still refund your money, but knowledge helps us hedge mistakes!
Yes you can. We have many tools besides PayPal to process payments over the phone.

Yes and Yes! In fact, we use the same material(s) except with some material excluded for CAPM students. So, in that sense and in this instance, this is essentially a two-for-one deal. CAPM exam info PMP exam info
Tremendously valuable. The PMP credential adds nearly the same amount of value to a professionals pay and benefits as a Masters Degree of Business Administration, or MBA. With America continually outsourcing jobs and companies hiring younger employees to replace current, more experienced (and higher salary) employees, the PMP credential is a vital means of maintaining job security. This is especially true because, as of January 2013, nearly half of all PMP's in the United States are 35 years old and younger. Younger professionals are seeking any and every high quality credential they can get in order to be competitive in today's economy, and among the highest of these is the PMP credential. So for any professional, regardless of their profession, irrelevant of their experience level, independent of their work background, and no matter what their age, the PMP credential is essential to gaining and maintaining a competitive and dynamic edge.
