Hear from graduate,
"The WKU Project Management course was a huge help in laying down the foundation of knowledge that the PMP test is built upon, and our instructor was very good at explaining the more complex concepts. I’m glad I did the course and passed the PMP certification examination on my first attempt. I don’t think I would have been nearly as prepared for the test if I had only done self-study."
