    Thanks a lot for STARPMO and special thanks to the admin for all your support. Cleared the exam today with highest grade in all areas. Great teaching and excellent support.

    Nidhi Arora
    I chose StarPMO purely on instinct for my ACP training, and it was a very good choice. The faculty was very informed – both about the exam content and about the practical application of Agile.Just before the exam, I got jitters. The faculty went out of their way (even though it was almost a month after the training) to provide guidance and encouragement. It is because of their correct guidance that I was able to clear this exam in just 2 days of training and then 3 days of crash studying. The logistics team was also awesome. Most of all, I appreciate their responsiveness. The training logistics were emailed to me, test site access issues were resolved within the hour, and as followup, we were directed to the right linked in group and other relevant forums. This puts them in a different league altogether. They are not just coaches for the exam, they are facilitators into the Agile domain. I truly appreciate their approach.I would recommend StarPMO to everyone looking for ACP coaching. However, please do not treat the exam lightly, because it is not that small a subject.

    Rajendra Satale
    It was nice session-much knowledge oriented. Thanks to Srikanth and Star PMO team.

    Raj Kumar Sahu, PMP, PMI-ACP
    I have passed the PMI-ACP Exam on 27th Feb 2012.On this success of mine, I would like to give my heartiest "THANKS"; to Dr. Srinnivas Telukunta for providing me the right "TRAINING, GUIDANCE and MOTIVATION" for the PMI-ACP exam which helped me to succeed.The course materials and the on-line tests are just perfect for this exam.I really appreciate STAR PMO's concept of free training for the same course (second time), which I availed during 1st Jan 2012, which helped me come back on track.Thanks again to you and Team Star PMO for all the help.

    Arul Muthupandian PMP, PMI-ACP

    Jagadeesh Bodapati
    I choose them based on the fact that they are reasonably economical PMP trainers in but later realized that they are the best as well. A few of my friends attended other centers at double the cost and weren't happy at all. Instructor has been excellent in his teaching methods and gave a lot of examples. While writing the test the only thing I was thinking for all questions is 'How would Instructor answer this question?' Be very attentive when he is solving test questions and adopt his approach to pass this exam.I attended the training in May 2010 and wrote the test on April 22nd 2011 so in this one year I almost forgot most of the important things in PMP. I called the Academy Administrator and asked him if I could attend the training once again, before I take the exam a I wasn't sure of a few concepts and he readily agreed without any questions. This shows that they stand by their trainees and help them in whatever way they can. They aren't like other institutes who only look for money. Thank you very much for all the support. I am sure I will come back to you guys for more professional trainings in future.

    Sai Prasad
    I have received 35 hours PDU training from the Academy and it was of great help. The confidence level provided in those class room training by the faculty was excellent. Free online tests access, tips/suggestions for exam were very good. I strongly recommend this institute for any prospective PMP / CBOM candidates.

    Srikanth Kamsali
    I have undergone the PMP training, it was excellent. and the Instructor is an excellent faculty with very cooperative in nature.I will definitely recommend my colleagues and friends for any kind of training which they offer and would go back myself for additional trainings in future.

    The Instructor is very good at taking the classes. He is crisp and clear, gets to the point without digressing from the topic. Their greatest asset is the quality of Instructors they employ- You cannot find anywhere else.Attending this class has really helped me with understanding the PMP material well and pass the exam easily.

    Santosh Nandi,
    The faculty has demonstrated great zeal in ensuring that we learn the PMP processes efficiently, thus enabling First Time clearance. His Knowledge and depth of the subject is just more than perfect. Due to my busy schedules, I wasn't able to give much time after the course, but have recommended several friends about the institute and faculty that you are one of the best in business.
