Hi, I’m Crystal Richards, the lead instructor for MindsparQ™. I've trained over 2,000 business professionals to meet their goals of project management and agile excellence by achieving the PMP® credential and furthering their educational pursuits in the field.

 

Over the last 15 years, I have worked with:

  • Government agencies

  • Consulting firms

The 3 Biggest Pitfalls of Certification Training Programs:

  1. The material will either bore your staff to tears or give them a headache.

  2. The material only teaches the information and teaches nothing about the actual exam.

  3. There is no guidance on how to use the different resources out there.

 

Getting your teams certified doesn’t need to be so difficult or boring.

 

MindsparQ™ training programs can be tailored to your exact, unique needs to develop and grow your staff to pass the exam and translate that knowledge to the job.

Going from "Ugh!"...to "Aaahh!"

Initial reactions within the first 10 minutes of a MindsparQ™ training session:

“Wow, this is going to be good.”

 

“I think I better listen, this lady is dropping gems.”

 

 

And after taking a class with MindsparQ™:

 

“The PMP prep course was awesome! I can say that this time around I retained more of the material.”

 

“Going into the course I was afraid it was going to be long and boring, but you were an absolutely amazing instructor that made it easy to stay engaged.”

 

“I just told my manager about you and how we need to get you again as an instructor.”

 

“You’ve made me excited about taking the exam…and taking all this knowledge back to my job.”

Why MindsparQ™ is Different

Here are what some of the 2,000+ business professionals are saying…

I took my PMP exam this Sunday, November 11, 2020 and PASSED!! I  cannot even explain the level of joy I am feeling right now! :) Looking back at my journey I know there is one key piece that made this possible: Crystal Richards. She came highly recommended and I soon found out why! From the beginning it was clear how knowledgeable, determined, and entertaining she was.
