I joined Simplilearn for CBAP certification program. The course material is good. The customer support team assists in enrolling for the certification and they also provide CBAP reference for you. They ask for regular feedback throughout the course and do implement them. The course is interactive. Sometimes the participants raise questions during the class and interrupt the flow of the session. My suggestion is it will be better if the trainer can proceed with class and keep the discussion at the end of the session. For any kind of assistance, you can contact the support and they are always happy to help.
