As you might imagine, I get a lot of emails on various aspects of project management training, and in particular, stuff for preparing for the PMP exam.
I remember back in the 1980’s or so, local newsagents had many regular monthly magazines on some specialist topic or another. For example, gardening, sewing, model making, collectors stuff, and so on. Each month customers would shell out hard cash….fast forward many months later, and they found out that they have paid several hundred pounds on a topic that could have been purchased in a bookstore for a tenth of the price!
Now price is not everything I know, and I’m sure they got lots of enjoyment and anticipation waiting for the next installment…but… take preparing for your PMP exam as an example. I got this in my inbox this morning:
The “Project Scope Management (PMBOK® Guide – Fourth Edition-aligned)” training bundle consists of the following three courses:
- Project Requirements and Defining Scope
- Create Work Breakdown Structure
- Monitoring and Controlling Project Scope
Online Access (Single User) : EUR 175
This covers just one of my 28 PMP Video Modules (over 100 streaming 20-minute videos), and doesn’t even include practice exam questions and answers (like mine does) plus our famed online PMP Exam Simulator with 2,000 questions and answers. Now 175 Euros is around £158 or $250 USD – which puts the total cost of this training up around the $5000 USD mark… It seems a tad expensive to me, so what if you could get the whole $5000 course for a very customer-friendly price?Dave Litten PMP Trainer
