Testimonials from John’s PMP® Exam Preparation Program

“I have enrolled in a PMP preparation course back in 2015. Under his mentorship, John demonstrated a deep knowledge of his field and a natural ability to share his knowledge and expertise in a pleasant and comprehensible manner. Although our classes lasted for a few weeks only, I have learned from him more than I could ever expect. I strongly recommend John as a professional that you can learn a lot from him.“

“I have worked and collaborated with John on multiple assignments since 2011. John is a brilliant project management training expert. He delivered various customised training programs in Project Management, Risk Management, Scheduling, Earned Value Management, and others that I have attended and directly benefited from or observed the delivery of such programs.“

“I had two PMP courses with John and was very happy with the results that I got. He’s very talented and skilled trainer. He uses different tools and techniques and always up to date with his knowledge. He has also great experience in project management which backups his training talent. I liked our discussions during these sessions because even though he was more experienced, but he was always open to listen to your ideas and thoughts. I highly recommend him!“
