Thank you Rakshith Purushothama for your testimonial! Rakshith started our individualized, self-paced, virtual instructor-led training. This one on one program is completely tailored and unlike our group sessions that are more discussion based. Both methods have their benefits and its entirely up to our students on which structure they prefer. Read what Rakshith had to say:
"I started my online PMP session more than a month back and still pursuing it. A few points to note 1. 1 on 1 session with trainer 2. Great Flexibility with respect to times when we can schedule the classes.( usually 2 hrs per session) 3. Communication with Trainer- Clarification of doubts or anything related to PMP exam or course was done over emails,text messages,phone calls etc. 4. Free Rita latest edition PMP and PMBOK book when you enroll for the PMP program - Hard Copies 4. Career Coaching - This is the best part. It is tailor made for each and every student's needs i.e. resume, cover letter prep or changes, job interview preparation, mock interviews etc. I didn't need much inputs with respect to Resume and Cover Letter. However, we spent lot of time with mock interviews prep which helped me the most which increased my performance on the interview day. 5. Total Value for money Rating - 8.5/10"
