 Susan Smarth Testimonials

I came into the class without any background in project management. Susan has a great understanding of the subject management and makes the information digestible for the students. No question asked by a student went unanswered, and she stayed after class to assist anyone who needed further assistance. I would gladly take any class Susan would teach regardless of my background in the subject matter.
___________________________________________________________________________

I received my PMP certificate from Bergen, and plan on taking the exam within the next two weeks. I just want you to know I really, really enjoyed the PMP course, primarily because of the wonderful instructor, Susan (Smarth). She made herself available to us at any time, via email, text, and phone. She was very professional, knowledgeable, experienced, and light hearted, and truly cared about our success.

_____________________________________________________________________________

If she teaches any other course, please let me know so I can consider signing up. I cannot remember having such a perfect instructor, high school, and college considered. I plan on keeping in contact with her.
