PMP Case Study

Jeremy DiCalogero 

I give many thanks to Ahmed Zouhair in my ability to attain a PMP. He created a great environment through discussion and team-based activities – this was very conducive for learning PMI material because of project management’s foundation in communication and collaboration. Ahmed’s diverse background in project management allowed him to connect concepts to tangible business experiences. He took the time to learn about my background and was able to provide personalized guidance. Even outside of classes, he was always eager to support our studies and to provide us with all the resources we needed.

Success

{

The instructor has a unique ability to bring in his vast amount of project management experience into the classroom. I have been a project manager for many years prior to taking his class. I manage my projects very differently now, due to this class’s instruction. I would highly recommend taking this PMP class if you want to prepare for the PMP or learn about project management.

The PMP preparation class taught by the instructor is the most comprehensive, hands-on, and cost-sensitive training opportunity for veterans out there. Due to the instructor’s strong facilitation skills and information recall techniques, I was able to successfully pass the PMP exam on the first try. I would highly recommend this class to those interested in starting a career in Project Management.

The Project Management Professional Certification Program and Boot Camp courses surpassed my expectations. I was able to pass the PMP Certification Exam on my first attempt.
