When our students start the Cheetah Exam Prep for the PMP exam course on Monday, every thought is on how they are going to feel when they walk out of that exam center being PMP certified. It is this feeling that carries them through the intense week to achieve the very significant accomplishment of passing the PMP exam after only four days of preparation. Believing is achieving for the 50,000+ Cheetah students who have taken the challenge of passing the PMP exam in four days of intense prep with Cheetah Learning. Only ten percent of people take the Cheetah approach. For those that for, whatever their reasons, choose not to go this approach, many spend over six months studying and forty percent of them fail. Having a successfully proven path to follow does help the 98% of Cheetah students who do pass with the accelerated four-day approach we pioneered 13 years ago.

Over the years, hundreds of companies and individuals have attempted to copy Cheetah’s four-day approach, but they miss key elements of it as they don’t fully understand all the nuances of accelerated learning. Lack of confidence with an approach not fully understood by the copycats hurts their students’ abilities to pass, and these operations soon find other, way more reliable ways to earn a living. We get many of their students retaking the exam after going through their programs. Every year it’s a different set of companies that offer what they call a “boot camp” approach – except for Cheetah Learning.

We don’t call our program a “boot camp,” as it is not. A “boot camp” assumes you adopt a set of behaviors for a very short period of time. Cheetah students, though, learn how to learn for life in their four-day experience with Cheetah Learning to pass the PMP exam. They don’t participate in a grueling boot camp experience to pass an exam. Most report that it’s an exhilarating, life-changing experience that does in fact help them create a life they prefer far beyond passing the PMP exam. And this is why 85% of Cheetah students come from a referral and we stay in business year after year after year, when these other PMP exam prep companies come and go like so many other flavor-of-the -ay management fads.

When you can help people genuinely create a life they prefer, they tell others about it. This is Cheetah’s core business strategy; it’s built into every course we develop and why we are known as the “gold standard” in project management education. Check out how you can create a life you would prefer – become a Cheetah Certified Project Manager.
