Good platform to begin PMP journey. The trainer is knowledgeable. However, we need to study alot more on our own in order to pass. So the training is mainly a foundation.

The class was condensed and made really easy to follow. Sunil as a trainer was great and gave very relatable experiences. Our KnowledgeHut chatbot assistance was also very helpful. I have given 4 stars instead of 5 (which is what I would have liked to give) because when I had a concern about logging into a class, our KnowledgeHut coordinator did not reply to any of my emails. In the end, somehow I restarted and refreshed and the PRISM website got fixed and I was able to join the class.
