Happy to have earned Program Management Professional (PgMP) Certification in my maiden attempt and all credit goes to Addon Skills! I was a student of AddonSkills from 4th Nov '17 and the coaching provided by them gave me enough confidence to appear and clear the exam within two months i.e. on 8th Jan '18. The study materials, question banks & joint session to solve them, sessions around ECO and additional Q&A discussions in the WhatsApp group all contributed towards getting my Program Management concepts strong. The examples were relevant and provided right insight into understanding the scenarios to apply program management best practices.
