by University Learning Institute

You don't have to be big to be successful. You just have to give the best value.

The following email was received from a senior manager at the FBI in 2005. He was among the first of 410 FBI staff members who have taken TheCourse through the end of 2009:

"By my count, the FBI in West Virginia has already certified 35 new PMPs (Sic)-- including me.  I expect the number will reach 40 by the end of October. I want to thank you for your efforts in our behalf.  The course and your personal contributions certainly made a difference.  Project development in the FBI and ultimately National Security will be measurably improved because of your commitment and hard work."

We do just one thing, and we do it well. We develop, maintain and conduct TheCourse, which teaches the core competencies of project management while preparing project managers to pass the project management certification exam. TheCourse is by far the most cost-effective prep course available. Our first class was conducted at University of Maryland in the fall of 2002, and this page was prepared ten years later. The author of TheCourse personally conducted classes for more than ten years and collected feedback from thousands of students, including debriefings following their examinations. We also have conducted dialog with Project Management Institute, Inc. regarding A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), resulting in revisions in both 3rd and 4th editions.

The following 348 organizations have either contracted with us to conduct classes in their facilities, or registered staff members for open enrollment classes or online instruction.
