MindsparQ™ Training Programs

Hi, I’m Crystal Richards, the lead instructor for MindsparQ™.


I’ve been in your shoes when it was my time to prepare for the PMP and PMI-ACP exams. Perhaps you feel this way:

  • Nervous about the training being boring and out of touch.

  • The material is hard to read, like reading another language. 

  • The material (and the instructor) doesn't make you feel smart, and makes you feel like you've been managing projects wrong all this time.

At MindsparQ™, my focus is to make sure you don't feel that way and help you have the confidence to pass the exams and be taught in a way that will make you want to take your learning back to the job.

Are you ready for exam success?

The MindsparQ™ Difference

MindsparQ™ has designed certification training programs that are built around 3 Key Training Enhancers to help students prepare for the certification exams:


  • Make the material engaging, memorable and easy to understand.

  • Offer the opportunity for "learn by doing" to help students understand the concepts necessary to pass the exams.

  • Empower training participants on how to use additional resources so they can pass on the first try.

And the difference in the MindsparQ™ approach shows...


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

Crystal was instrumental to my success in taking and passing the PMP exam! In the face of a very challenging test , she was most helpful with recommending a study strategy. Most importantly, her continued support and confidence in me to pass the exam kept me focused and ultimately dedicated to passing the exam! I feel very fortunate to have been able to have her as my coach!
