Reviews & Testimonials
Career Academy was not only a great value, but instrumental in aiding me to pass the
PMP® exam. The videos were concise and the material was well laid out. I
also found the practice exams to be very useful in really understanding the content.
In addition, submitting for the PDUs after passing the exam was quick and easy. I
have since taken other courses with Career Academy and it has sharpened my skills and
I feel like I can add value to any organization. Lastly, they are very attentive at
replying to any questions you have via email. I would highly recommend any of their

I've been working as a project manager for several years and really enjoy what I do.
During Christmas break 2014, I decided that I finally needed to achieve my PMP and
begin to master the knowledge areas and process groups of the Project Management
Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Since I'm a busy professional and didn't have time to
attend a multi-day boot camp, I felt the online video approach could serve as a
strong foundation to my study approach. I found Career Academy and thought the costs
seemed reasonable given that I had 1 year of access to the website. Most other
sites provided 1-3 months of access. Rather than simply "pass a test", I wanted to
truly understand the material with a side benefit of being able to pass a test. In
terms of knowledge acquisition and strategy, the approaches of "simply passing a
test" and "truly understanding the material" are truly different. Being able to
watch the videos during breaks, at lunch, or after the kids had gone to bed were
absolutely the best!
The Career Academy videos provided the opportunity to view and review the PMP
material. As I met with my study group peers at work, I found that I had gained a
solid understanding of the PMP concepts. The presenter, Martin VanDerSchouw, is
engaging and shares excellent real-world stories about the PMP test material. The
handouts and 100's of test preparation questions are helpful and more importantly,
are reflective of the overall difficulty of the PMP exam.
On PMP test day, I was well prepared. Martin's description of the test day
experience, suggestions on study plans, and presentation of the material was top
notch. As with any test, I was a bit nervous. After completing the first 50
questions, I realized that I had been well prepared and none of the test material
was shocking, surprising, or fear-inducing. By question 120, I was envisioning what
my post-test celebration would look like and how excited I was to soon be finished!
I'd highly recommend this course as cornerstone to any PMP test preparation
endeavor. Kudos to Martin and Career Academy for creating such helpful material!

I purchased the CCNA course at Career Academy and went through it twice. The
instructor was VERY thorough! He gave great "real world" examples and made it easy
to understand. After 11 days of study and very little additional notes, I passed my
CCNA with a solid 900+ score. I am extremely pleased with my purchase and will be
purchasing CCNA Security soon.

We have been using online streaming content and online labs from Career Academy for
our classes here at St. Edwards University Professional Education Center for the
months. We have been very pleased with the online courses and labs as well as the
support provided by Career Academy. We had a class a few weeks back for which
had not yet prepared labs. I called the sales manager and explained our need.

Career Academy provides effective training at a reduced cost! One of my employees

course; have limited time available; and desire to save $$.

Your training material was exactly what I was looking for, audio, visual and high
quality learning on demand. Now instead of going to a course and having to take off
several days of work, and having to be out of town; I can now learn sitting at my
desk at work or at home at a fraction of the price. Career Academy, you guys are

The Career Academy MCSD for VB .NET course had instructors of
the highest calibre. They knew their material incredibly well and they were
passionate about presenting it in a way that would be well learned. In addition they
were articulate and very well spoken. The instructors being some of the best America
has to offer, I believe that I learned things from them
that I would not have picked up from a local instructor. The Career Academy series
truly represents value for money, and allows access to a very high level of
The lack of face to face instruction is offset by the ability to repeat sections as
needed. In addition Career Academy's
inclusive online mentor program allows for real world feedback in any case.
I recommend Career Academy to anyone who want to gain IT certification on their own
time, and without breaking the bank.

We started our search and reviews for Online/DVD training reseller programs in early
specific expectations in terms of the quality of the training, how the program
work based on our needs, how information should flow between us and the training
provider, and how payments should to be made. Many of the companies we contacted
showed little or no flexibility with regards to our specific requirements. But the
CareerAcademy staff worked with us to meet our expectations, and we have been
their products very successfully since then. Their flexible and helpful attitude,
combined with their high standards in product development, has resulted in a
successful partnership between our companies, and has aided many of our students in
reaching their career goals and aspirations.
The program is outstanding. I cannot believe I can make a live
simulator. Your course is worth every penny. I don't think I have seen
education program that comes close to your program...I know I will not fail the CCNA
certification test because I have right learning tools. Thank you for a
