Passionate Project Management - it's not just our company name, it's what we believe in.
After 20+ years as an accomplished project manager across multiple industries, Belinda was selected to assume the leadership of a large, at-risk training division of a Fortune 500 company. After successfully restructuring and reorganizing the team and the services provided, Belinda had an opportunity to facilitate leadership and management courses in addition to her role as the Director. It was during that time spent in the classroom that Belinda realized she loved teaching as much as she loved project management. Following that realization she left Corporate America to pursue her new passion: bringing together project management and adult education.
She started out as a contract Project Management Professional (PMP)® instructor for a number of large training companies. While she was passionate about PMP exam preparation and the students' success, she found that the materials, methods, and environments provided by those training companies were not conducive to PMP® preparation. Non-instructor owned companies tended to be impersonal and out-of-touch with the exacting requirements of many of the credentials.
After one particularly rough class (a broken air conditioning unit in the training room during record heat, beyond sub-par materials, and the host hotel's food decorated with bits of mold...) Belinda consulted with Devin and Passionate Project Management was born. They would start their own company and do things the right way and focus strictly on project management and IT certifications. Quality and student services were the priority. They were determined to be everything those training companies weren't: Simply, the best PMP exam prep training company in the world.
Since that sweaty, stinky and unpleasant week, Passionate Project Management has gone on to develop the most robust training materials in the industry and PPM's incredible growth has been based completely on providing exceptional service to their students, time and time again. PPM students become friends and long-time business associates. The Fremouws have successfully taken a transactional business and made it relational. This is why PPM sees the return of the majority students - for additional credentials or PDU hours.
Belinda became the first woman in the world to receive the original five Project Management Institute (PMI)® credentials: PMP, PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP)®, PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)® and the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® and has since added the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® to her accomplishments!
Passionate Project Management’s industry-leading student success rates on the PMI® exams drives home just how important a skilled and passionate instructor, superior student support, and the right materials are to student success. Multi-Credentialed.
