“PMP exam is more of a way to test one’s way of thinking & to assess an individual’s tentative behavior if faced with a project management situation. And I feel that Aptech helped me align my thought process with what’s expected by PMI®. Aptech’s trainers along with PMBOK® Guide (the Bible) did provide for an excellent launch pad, from where I had to just shoot and make the project of attaining PMP, a success.
PMI randomly selects some number of applications for audit, and mine was one among them (believe me, a huge effort is required to furnish their requirements). To facilitate PMI’s audit process, it is required that a complete set of documents are furnished in hard copy format to PMI, USA. And Aptech helped me in consolidating the dossier to the full satisfaction of PMI. The trainers & admin staff were all very supportive - which helped me sail smoothly through the heavy-on-head Audit. Must thank all of them for everything.”

“The PMP training was conducted in an environment which was conducive for experiential learning. In fact, the group discussions helped the class come up with all possible ‘incorrect’ answers until we finally understood the correct one.
The study material provided - and especially the guidance on how to objectively crack the exam - was out of the world! I recollected some funny anecdotes that Yatin had mentioned in the class while taking my exam (it helped me cool my nerves during a difficult question); this itself speaks volumes for the course and the way it was conducted.
I wish the Aptech team all the best and hope many people benefit from their focused teaching methods.”
- Harshal Sulakhe
“My endeavour to complete my PMP certification turned out to be an amazing experience with Aptech. Their training truly emphasizes the principles of Project Management and makes you understand the significance of applying them in your personal and professional lives.
I was impressed with the way Aptech goes about reinforcing these aspects in a silent but professional manner. It was a great learning curve since we are grouped together in a batch of people with varied professional backgrounds where everyone is more than happy to share their different experiences. Ultimately, the training material and mock tests - not to forget the invaluable tips - ensured that we succeed in our examinations with flying colours!
Kudos to you. Keep up the fab work!
