I passed the PMP exam on my 1st attempt after attending Oliver's Project Management Professional (PMP) Exam Prep Course and I would recommend him as a trainer/instructor. He had a fresh approach and maintained a clear well-thought out curriculum. He inspired me with his confidence and "can do" mentality.
