I had attended the PMP Live Virtual Training organised by KnowledgeHut., The training was very well-organised and professional. The trainer was very helpful in ensuring that I had complete knowledge and understanding of the PMP material prior to submitting my experience and then attending the exam to receive my PMI PMP Certification. Thank you, KnowledgeHut! I would definitely recommend it.
