Testimonials from the July 2020 CMP Bootcamp with Molly Johnson, CMP, QAS

"I thought the Bootcamp with Molly was incredibly useful and a key step toward getting my CMP. I found the mock questions presented during the bootcamp and the practice exam provided afterwards to be especially helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone who is serious about attaining their CMP."

Crista Hartenstein, CMP 
Advanced Technology International

"When I lost my job due to COVID-19, I decided to have a positive outlook on the situation and take the time to really pursue my CMP. In the past, I convinced myself that I didn't have the time or money to earn my CMP, but this time I was left with no option but to succeed. I took on a part time job, created a study schedule, and signed up for the CMP Bootcamp through MPI that an industry friend recommended to me. Molly was fantastic!  She took her time going through the EIC book, our study materials, and gave us examples on what we would be tested on. After the bootcamp, I reached out to her on several occasions to ask questions and she was always readily available and helpful. Molly and the CMP Bootcamp played a huge role in my success and passing my exam!"
