Shelly Garg, PMP

Proventures laid the foundation in my journey of passing the PMP exam. Guidance from both the tutors (Mr. Gopal and Mr. Krishnamurthy) was commendable. Mr. Krishnamurthy provided PMP Certification examination tips; whereas Mr. Gopal provided the basic concepts. It was a good combination. Assistance provided by Proventures in filling the PMP Certification application form was helpful. Concepts as well as PMP examination preparation tips were thoroughly covered in the training session.
