Master Of Project Academy Review [2019]: Must Read Before Buying

master of project academy review

You are at right place if you are looking for Master Of Project Academy review. I have written this post after looking at various project management courses offered by the company.

Master Of Project Academy (MOPA) was established in the year 2012. It was founded by Resit Gulec. Resit started the company by providing an online PMP course on Udemy.

Compared to other project management training providers, MOPA is relatively a new entrant and quality of its PMP cours is not as good as its competitors.

MOPA provides many certification courses including certifications from Project Management Institute’s (PMI). Its offers exam preparation courses for PMP, PMI-ACP and CAPM. Some of its courses are very popular owning to high pitch advertising.

Since its inception, the company has also launched many non-PM online certification courses. These include CISCO, Six Sigma, and few others.

The company claims that it has 500,000+ enrollments for its courses but it seems like an absurd figure. Let us examine and analyze company’s offerings & products.

Master Of Project Management Review

PMP Exam Simulator

Do you know what the biggest reason of success in the PMP exam?

Like with any other exam, it is practice and more practice. A good PMP simulator gives you the right platform to practice mock questions.

MOPA is a late entrant in the PMP simulator field. It launched its simulator only in early 2019. It is a very new product.

At the surface the simulator looks good. It has 7 full length mock tests containing 1400 sample PMP exam questions. However, when you clook closesly it seems to be steeply priced. It’s cost is much higher than the competition and lacks some of the essential features of a PMP test simulation software.

If you are looking for a good simulator, you should read my side-by-side comparison of leading PMP practice tests. It will help you find the best PMP simulator.

Online And Live PMP Training

MOPA started their operations with the online PMP training. It is the most mature product from their stable. In 2019, they also launched an instructor led live online training.

MOPA is not a PMI’s Registerd Education Provider (REP). The 35 contact hour certificate issued by the company are not pre-approved for applying to the credential exams.

MOPA’s online PMP course is reasonably priced but its content has average quality. It might be one of the cheapest PMP program available but there are many better choices available. There are three options to take subscription of this course – monthly, annual, and lifetime.

If you are looking for low priced course then you can buy MOPA’s online PMP offering. However, if you want invest in a better option, then you read look my article for the head-to-head comparison of top PMP programs.

In case you are seeking a live online course, then you should read my comparison post on instructor led live PMP programs.

Online CAPM Training

MOPA offers CAPM training only as an online program. Just like its PMP course, you have three different options to buy CAPM online course – monthly, annual, and lifetime.

I found CAPM online course as an average course in my review. I think, you should look into my detailed review and comparison article on CAPM Online Training before investing in a CAPM training program. It will help you to find the best course for your studies.

MOPA currently does not offer a full CAPM simulator. It offers a course that has a combination of 2 full-length practice tests math lectures but you will need more mock tests to pass the exam. You can buy its 1 month subscription towards the end of your exam prep.

You will need a fully featured exam simulator to successfully crack the exam because you must practice many questions before appearing in the exam. You can find a good online CAPM simulator here.

Online PMI-ACP Training

The company offers PMI-ACP online exam preparation training. Just like its other online offerings, MOPA’s PMI-ACP training has three pricing tiers – monthly, annual, and lifetime.

I have not done course review of PMI-ACP training of MOPA. Considering the quality of their other courses, I think their PMI_ACP courses should also be as good or as bad as its other programs.

If you are looking to pursue PMI-ACP certification, you should consider investing in Agile Prepcast instead of PMI-ACP Course from MOPA. It is offered by by a much more established company.

You should invest in a good simulator for PMI-ACP certification. You can look at my review article that compares top PMI-ACP test simulators. It will help you in choosing the best simulation software for your studies.

Final Words – Pros & Cons Of Master Of Project Academy

The training courses offered by MOPA are reasonably priced but they don’t offer very good value for your money.

You can look at my other review and comparison articles (links shared above) to check how their courses fare against other leading programs.

Pros

Decent Technology Platform – The Company uses latest technology for its eLearning programs. It provides a modern Learning Management System (LMS) that can be used to track progress of your courses. The quality of videos is very good.

Reasonably Priced Courses – You can buy their courses for as little as a month. The courses are reasonably priced.

Comprehensive Study Aids – The Company offer various study aids for the exam prep. They are useful for passing the exams but content is not good.

Cons

Company is not an PMI REP – The company has not taken PMI REP status which suggests that quality and credibility of their courses is not good. You can use the course certificates for applying to the PMI certification exams but their contact hours are not pre-approved by PMI.

Quality of training content is not good – The competing courses offer much better quality and content. Some of the content is dry and boring. The videos do not have real life project management examples.

Online PMP Simulator is very expensive – Company’s training courses are very competitively priced. In fact, some of their online programs are priced much lower than their competition but their exam simulator has a very high price.

Customer Service & Support seems to be below par – The support is available from regular support staff and not from subject matter experts.
