PMP Certification Exam Prep

If you are searching for an engaging and memorable PMP Exam Prep class for your team, then look no further! Shirley has the unique ability to breakdown the hardest concepts into comprehensible chucks of information that you will remember for the PMP Exam. I was lucky enough to partner with Shirley in one of my previous roles to offer open enrollment classes for the public. I had course attendee, after course attendee, call me personally and tell me how much they enjoyed her prep class.
