    CELTEM Learning Consultants and Faculty members have decades of experience in the “trenches” of Project Management, and have gained invaluable insights into what works and what doesn’t, be it large-scale global delivery based IT services projects, transition project for a BPO, software product development, pre-sales activities or account management.

    Be Careful to use Simplilearn as the information is less than stellar. The Pass guarantee is almost impossible to get. The fine print of 80% on 3 tests is nearly impossible. Many do not pass after the class and almost all do not receive a refund. Formulas are incorrect in the training material.

      Do you have an alternate suggestion of training that is more appropriate and successful? I was looking at the salesforce certification course but after reading all the horror stories from those who’ve used simlilearn, I’m waving off. Thanks.

        Grant….why would you take up the actual exam, if you have not score 80% in simplilearn free test. They clearly advise not to take real exam, unless you pass their simulation exam. Dont try to confuse people.

        There is no magic bullet, if you cant score 80% in their test…how will you pass the exam? Go and complete the studies and than take up the exam.

    There are far better alternatives out there that offer much more at the same price range.
    I bought the simplilearn online videos and mock exams because I wanted the mock exams – 4 exams in the PMP course at a great price.
    The videos are really really bad – they sound as though they are being narrated by a software package, like dragon naturally, except there was nothing natural about the presentation.

    I then entered a competition on there community forums and won a course of my choice – I was over the moon and chose classroom training in Prince2. 3 days before my course I have been chasing them up to get a venue address and instead I receive an email:

    “As our company has gone through a major strategic change we now are inclined towards online self-learning and online classroom sessions. I sincerely apologies to all the inconvenience caused to you. Please find the other options for Prince2 training.” Now I can sympathise and understand what Cotswold 4 and Judith had to say, this is a bait and swithch.

    I was offered – instead of 9-5 classroom training – online classroom with: “Instructor Led On-line Training gives you the opportunity to attend live training sessions from your home or office. We use modern Cisco WebEx tool for these sessions so that you can attend the training using your PC, Laptop, Tablets or Smartphones.” at the wonderful times (local time) of Time: 00:30 – 03:30 or Time: 21:00 – 01:00

    BUT – here is the kicker – their website is still advertising the course I am meant to be going on and still advertising classroom traiing for next month……

    I am just pleased that I didnt pay for this – but I have booked annual leave from work and organised my life around attending this course……Please – Please – Please save your money and look elsewhere
