Our Students See All

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.

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.

I really enjoyed this course qualified facilitator and intimate setting. The opportunity to apply what we learned directly on a real-life situation was invaluable.

Attended workshop in December 2017

Trainer was very knowledgeable and gave all necessary tips to attend for test. However the training material would've been good if some more examples we're given... Otherwise all good.
