Student Success

"The Project Management Certificate Program offered by SMU was a game changer in quest to obtain my PMP. The instructors, Sharla and Scott, were phenomenal leaders showing compassion, answering every question all with a smile on their face. The class was engaging and interactive and went by FAST! Yeah - FAST! The added benefit is the people you will meet and the lifelong connections made. I highly suggest anyone looking to take their PMP certification make a pit stop and attend this training. You won't regret it!"
