Attended workshop in February 2018

Attended virtual PMP certification course through KnowledgeHut. Having worked in the industry for 20 years, was looking for more of refresher to brush up the conceptual and process knowledge required for certification and this training fully met my expectations. The trainer's (Mr Sunil Agarwala) knowledge of the topic (conceptual + practical) and content delivery was commendable and very apt for the target audience. Very useful training.

Attended workshop in December 2017

I attended a PMP certification training @Delhi with KnowledgeHut. It was quite informative & learning. Trainer Sujoy Dutta is good.... only thing during the last day things get little hurried up... We surely liked his strategy to prepare for the exam, this will help all the students.
