About PM Mentors
“If you help enough people realize their goals, your success will just come automatically.” I wholeheartedly agree!Zig Ziglar's philosophy
I began my journey in Project Management working for Cray Research, Inc. in Eagan, MN, began to apply the principles to other endeavors, and later became the V.P. of Marketing at a small consulting company in Austin, Texas that specialized in Project Management Training/Consulting. From 2000 until 2004, I helped increase the process maturity capability level working as a Sr. Project Officer in the PMO for the Texas Department of Human Services. In April of 2004, I launched PM Mentors (full time), and have also continued teaching Project Management for the University of Texas and St Edwards University in Austin, Texas. Helping people learn and understand things has always been important to me. Over the past several years many people have encouraged me to pursue my passion for teaching. Students who attended my college courses, as well as colleagues whom I teach alongside, became the inspiration for the birth of PM Mentors. As a part-time college adjunct instructor for several years, I realized that teaching was my true calling. My position at the State of Texas, also enabled me to teach Project Management and Quality principles. I started to get referrals and calls from companies and colleagues that also needed help training their staff. So, actually, my customers created PM Mentors by asking me to come and help them. And for that I am most grateful!
Letter to Our Friends
Greetings from Project Management Mentors (PMM). We hope 2016 is going well for you!
We are excited to let you know we are expanding our course offerings to not just include project management application/certification courses, but also business analyst (PMI-PBA) certification classes, program (PMO) management classes, facilitation skills classes, sales/selling classes, and customer service classes. Got a topic you would like us to teach on? Let us know! Please visit our new website regularly for updated information: www.pmmentors.com.
PMP/CAPM/PMI-PBA EXAM PREP LIVE TELECONFERENCES: We still need your assistance to help get the word out, as we hope to offer valuable, inexpensive, LIVE TELECONFERENCES about once per month. Why do we ask for your help? Because we want to keep our prices as affordable as possible. By having bigger classes, you get reduced pricing! But just because we don’t need to charge a lot, does not mean we don’t provide the highest quality training. Our proven, easy-to-follow exam materials are mailed directly to our students, so they can prepare before the class, follow along during our live teleconferences, and study prior to taking their exams. In addition to our unique, exam prep workbook, we include games, terminology glossary, formula sheets, sample tests, e-flashcards, an exam simulator, and audio/video recordings. You can now attend Project Management training wherever it is convenient for you. Or, if you wish, you can travel to Costa Rica for the “live version,” and mix some “business with pleasure” in a tropical paradise! (“Pleasure” is taking our certification exam prep classes, of course! :-). One-on-one mentoring sessions are also provided to help ensure you pass. We also offer one-on-one mentoring right before our students take their exams. Don’t trust your future to part time/volunteer providers–we’ve been focused on doing this since 1999! You won’t find a better value anywhere else!
CERTIFICATION EXAM PREP PRICING: Don’t be deceived! Compare what PMM offers to similar training providers that offer 50% less training hours, inferior/less training materials, poor/boring instructors, and can cost thousands of dollars more! The prices for our 35-hour, exam prep teleconferences start as low as $699/student (10 students, or more from your organization). Onsite certification prep training starts as low as $999/student (15 students, or more from your organization). (Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more than 20 students). Finally, students that have previously taken our certification exam prep courses can retake the review portion of the course for as little as $100.
TUTORING: For exam prep students that need a little more assistance over a longer period of time, we are now providing online exam prep tutoring. Please contact us for details.
ONSITE APPLICATION TRAINING: Yes, we STILL offer onsite application-oriented classes which are very reasonably priced (e.g. As low as $2,000/day for up to 20 students). Volume discounts for certification training are still available for sites that have 15 or more students. If you don’t have a training room available (or of sufficient size), let us know so we can work something out with a nearby hotel. Our application courses cover a wide variety of topics, such as project and program management, leadership, facilitation skills, conflict resolution, sales, selling, business analyst, customer service, and much more. We also license our curriculums, and train-the trainer.
LIVE TELECONFERENCE SEMINARS: Too busy to attend a workshop? Just need some PDUs? Try one of our 2-8 hour seminars! These can help you sharpen your skills, as well as help you decide whether you want to pursue certification. See www.pmmentors.com for a list of topics.
PRE-RECORDED WEBINARS: Just need PDUs? See www.pmmentors.com for a variety of informative yet inexpensive webinars.
We thank you for your past patronage, and hope to “see you in cyber space,” or face-to-face real soon!
