“As a trained government program manager, I had senior-level DoD certifications, training, and degrees in business project management that I thought would be valuable in the commercial workforce. However, I increasingly found that government and commercial customers were looking for managers who possessed a PMP certification for key leadership positions. Thanks to the training provided to me by Project Masters (at my local community college), within two months I was able to move from a cold start (no prior reading) to passing the PMP exam on the first attempt. I am now encouraging others to take a Project Masters class and duplicate my success!”
