Tracy Jerabek
Information Technology Project Manager

“Robert Braathe led a personal one-on-one PMP prep class with me as his client/student. Robert’s presentation skills were outstanding and tailored to my needs and schedule. Robert paid special attention to key areas that are vital for passing the PMP exam (ie: formulas, key knowledge areas, overall project management methodology). Robert made me accountable and pushed me to learn the material. He provided me with textbooks and valuable phone conferences where I was able to ask questions and get feedback on my progress. I am certain that Robert’s attentiveness and strong knowledge of the material aided me in passing the PMP exam. While I know of PMP professionals who studied 1-2 years for this exam, I started my work with Robert in September 2014 and passed the exam in January 2015 after 5 months of work. Robert’s Project Management class was instrumental in my success. I highly recommend Robert’s Project Management class for anyone studying for the challenging PMP exam.”

Senior Project Manager – Ciber Inc.

“Robert Braathe prepared me for the next phase of my career! Robert was my instructor for the Project Management certification. His lesson plans were clear and concise. He provided mentoring along the way. This was the first time I had ever taken an online course and was concerned about lack of attention/time from the professor. Robert was the exact opposite of my concerns. He was very personable and accessible when I had any questions or concerns. He provided accurate take home tests that prepared me for the PMP exam. I would not be where I am in my career today without Robert’s PMP prep class.”

Dwane Sterling, PMP

Manager of Clinical Systems at Albany Medical Center

“Upon finding out that the original instructor was unable to deliver the training the day before training was to start Robert was hired to provide training to new project managers. Despite not having very much time to adjust Robert came fully prepared to deliver the training. His sessions over the following week were targeted but versatile, making sure to hit all the standard project management points but at the same time address the questions and real world scenarios that were presented.”
