Jai Shrrisaravanan Senior Manager
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.

Attended PMP® Certification workshop in November 2021

Neethy Joseph Supervising Associate
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.

Attended PMP® Certification workshop in October 2021

Chinonso Toor Project Manager
Great course! The instructor was knowledgeable, gave relatable example, and did assessments at the end of each module to help with knowledge retention. The class was also very engaging with people from different proejct backgrounds and industries.
