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.

Your courses are well designed, planned and executed. Love the interactive nature and the recaps after each section. Case studies are awesome to get material to stick. Thank you. IT appears you practice what you preach. You understand your stakeholders' needs so well.

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.
