"I am a Clayton State University alumnus. I have been an Assistant Project Manager for three years. I was encouraged by my upper management to obtain my PMP going into 2023. All of my research led me to go back to my alma mater to enroll in the PMP Exam Prep course with Mr. Lou Hampton at Clayton State University, Continuing & Professional Education.

Mr. Lou Hampton and his classes were very instrumental in my preparation for taking the PMP Exam. Mr. Hampton is one of those instructors who takes his courses and career very seriously, but he also knows how life doesn’t just stop but must carry on in the midst of your educational journey. He would share inspirational quotes and emails just as reminders of why we were taking this class - to better ourselves in our line of work. During the classes, Lou would make it a point to encourage the class to take the information we have been given and apply it to our own world of project management in our lines of work. This course of action greatly helped me see my own career from the light of the PMP, and really changed the way I view and perform certain areas of my daily work.

Without a doubt, I can with certainty say, “If it was not for this particular class with Lou Hampton, I am not sure how prepared I truly would have been to take my exam.” Lou would even go the extra-mile and provide occasional weekend sessions to just go over topics for deeper and greater understanding."
