There has been much debate about professional certifications. Many employers want certain certifications on their job listings. But does it really matter if you want to get a job? Is it worth the increase in your salary? We conducted a survey among our participants. The Post-Project Management Certification survey results were compelling!

Our PMP(r), Project Management Professional Certification Training won Best for Exam Prep title, and the Master of Project Academy Bundled course was selected as the Most Comprehensive training program.

Post-Project Management Certification Survey Results
93.21% of Participants who took the Exam in the Last Year Successfully Passed!
Master of Project Academy students have a 99.6% success rate on their first attempt. According to the group’s survey results, 93.21% of those who took the exam in the past year passed it. This does not mean that Master of Project Academy’s first attempt rate is lower than advertised. This means that there are a few students who are still studying for their certification exams, but could not take the exam in one year.
Exam preparation can vary from one person to the next. Master of Project Academy offers 100% self-paced courses as well as virtual classroom training programs for certain certifications like PMP. You can choose to complete the course at your own pace. We recommend that applicants use a variety of materials to help them with their study plan, such as flashcards or sample exams. Some people, especially those who are working professionals, can complete their entire study period in a shorter time than others, especially if they are more busy.
