“I am a 1LT in the Army and getting medically retired. I am a Field Artillery officer with one deployment to Afghanistan, and will be starting my new career with Lockheed Martin as a Systems Engineer in a couple weeks.
I took another online course for the PMP before coming across yours. The other course was downright awful. It was a gross summary of the PMBOK at best, and the scheduling of it was not so much on our own (the user’s) time, as classes were released twice per week for 3 months. I was in no way prepared to sit for the exam after completing that course (my practice tests were in the 40-50% range) even though I had all of the required the credentials.
I sat for my exam on October 20, 2017 and not only did I pass, I crushed it!
I stumbled across PM-ProLearn on LinkedIn when I saw it advertised for a recommended source for military. I did the first month free trial thing, and man am I glad I did! I completed every last topic, quiz, exercise and video front to back for the PMP in 4 days and I was killing all of my practice tests after that (my practice exams jumped from the 40-50% range to the 70-80% range consistently after your course). The course you put together is first class. The fact that we can do this entirely on our own time is wonderful. Your exercises did a great job in refreshing some of the information from some of the videos. The quizzes were great since there were always at least one flash and one application quiz, and they were both always extensive enough to cover the material. Your videos did a great job in explaining everything in a very easy way to understand. Your graphs at the end of each lesson were good because the flowcharts helped picture and conceptualize a little better with how interconnected things were in the grand scheme of things.
The guidance in how to submit an application with PMI was also great to know. I had never heard any advice with that, and instructing us to use the PMPECO as a guide was great. I’m not convinced I would have been able to sufficiently describe my previous project involvement to the PMI standard without your guidance on that either.
Furthermore, the course is very affordable for the average person. It is far less expensive than your typical PMP course, which I think deters people from the price alone often times.

My point in writing you is to say thank you very much for what you’ve done with this course. I sat for my exam on October 20, 2017 and not only did I pass, I crushed it! I got a target score in initiating, and above target scores in the other 4 process groups. There’s no way I would have come close to passing if it weren’t for your course. I have already recommended it to a few of my peers (some already in other courses and some who are interested in pursuing the PMP), and I will continue to recommend everybody I know to your course.”
