From Our Customers

Testimonial Headshot image of Claire Struthers
Velociteach is doing a great job of helping me earn my PDUs through the courses offered to me. I am most enthusiastic about project management and the Agile methodology that is garnering a lot of attention. Kudos to Velociteach and Neal Whitten to take this on and provide more information to PMI PMP's such as myself. It helps me to take the course on my own pace and when it serves me best to get on the computer to learn it.

Generally when I come to the end of my PMP 3 year cycle I look for online courses, and your company is always at the top of the list :)

I used Velociteach course material in preparing for my PMP exam years ago, and Velociteach has been my go-to for online courses thereafter.

The first 80% of the class was great, but the last 20% for the application was almost like a different class. Bicycle example looks like a Product Breakdown Structure. The the process was based on "activities" but what happened to "deliverables based ..."? I'm off to get the additional reading material recommended in the end. Overall, I'm significantly more knowledgeable on WBS than before, but it didn't get me far enough for practical application. Recommend the bundle for other classes, this is not the norm.

Hi Robert - thank you for taking this course and leaving an honest review! Thrilled to hear about the first 80% of this class and a bit confused about the last 20%. Can you reach out to us with more information as we are not completely understanding your comment regarding the bicycle example looking like a product breakdown structure. We'd like the opportunity to provide you with clarity. I can even get Eric on the response!

This course was an excellent review of what a WBS is supposed to be. The concept of Scope Sequencing makes total sense to me.
