Zenita Lindeberg, CCBA, CBAP

"The CBAP guide is well written, interesting, and much easier to read compared to the BABOK (read it but mostly used it as dictionary). The simulation exams and drills are extremely useful for training. (I achieved both my CCBA and my CBAP using your material.) It was valuable to read the explanations and then look up the BABOK section listed (both the correct and incorrect section if needed). I also value the preparation course, which has a lot of valuable discussions with the teacher and other CBAP students."
—Zenita Lindeberg, CCBA, CBAP (Sweden)

Helena Gabrić, CCBA

"I passed my CCBA exam!! I attended the CCBA Certification Prep training, which was extremely helpful to outline the full scope of the BABOK and to give very helpful guidelines on key items that need to be understood. I read the BABOK twice. The Study Guide is a must have! It helped to define the level of concept details to study and had very useful quick tests and tasks to help remember details. The online drills and exams brought everything together and gave a good baseline to test my knowledge and restudy areas that were lacking. Also, the suggestions given to get through the exam on the day were invaluable. I plan to take the CBAP next year!"
—Helena Gabrić, CCBA (Croatia)

Rob Careaga, ECBA

"From the beginning to the very end of the class, the experience was GREAT. The instructor was clear, well-paced and explained complex areas in understandable laymen’s terms. She kept the class engaged and encouraged open discussions through each session. I highly recommend this virtual prep class, great value."
—Rob Careaga, ECBA Certificate Prep student (United States)


"The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® Certification Prep Course was an unforgettable experience.  Watermark Learning ensures high quality education in its courses.  The knowledge, materials, and resources provided what was needed to pass the exam without over studying!"
—Ahmad Al Zaro, PMP, CBAP, PMI-RMP, PMI-ACP (Jordan)

Robin Anderson, PMP

"The professionalism, knowledge, superior training tools and genuine interest in students - succeeds in setting Watermark Learning "above the competition". They use several approaches to learning, since everyone learns differently. They were a key part in prepping, mentoring and passing my Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam - which directly increased my earning power."
