Testimonials

Nishantha Fernando PMI ACP, PMP, ITIL
Dr.Duminda is a unbelievably simple, humble and down to earth gentleman who provides a great community service to the project management professionals rather than maintaining a highly profitable educational industry. I am amazed to see the genuine need he has, to see his students passing the exam with good results. After conducting the ACP preparation course at a very reasonable cost, he arranged a lot of preparation materials and coaching sessions as an additional service to the students. He made himself available to discuss the difficult questions even till late night hours. I have never heard of this type of commitment from any other higher studies lecturer. I faced a very tough PMI ACP exam in December 2015. I successfully got through this exam only because of the priceless guidance and courage given by Dr.Duminda who always advised me to be prepared for more difficult exams. Today Dr.Duminda can be humbly proud by looking at the great harvest he has earned for many years by donating several hundreds of confident and knowledgeable project management professionals to the Sri Lankan community. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Dr.Duminda and I wish may you be able to grant your precious service for many more years to the project management community in Sri Lanka..

It is a true that more industries are moving towards agile nowadays including my work place. With the industry change I felt the importance of learning agile and getting qualified. PMS was the only place where it was possible to achieve this qualification. I didn't have a second thought of selecting PMS since Mr. Duminda Weeraratne was my lecturer and also I was positive about him as I had been his student from PMP level. The energy he creates to be prepared for an exam is what I liked the most. That energy definitely drives us to succeed in exams without any fear and makes us positive. He is very dedicated and truly helps us with every aspect he could to make our achievements successful. During the ACP program the other thing I experienced was the group assignments which we had to participate during each session. The practical experience during these sessions absolutely gave us a better understanding about the concepts than what it says in books. I should thank Mr. Duminda Weeraratne for been my mentor on achieving PMI-ACP qualification. I strongly recommend the ACP programme to anyone who wishes to learn agile and I do recommend the PMS Institute. I wish Dr. Duminda Weeraratne and PMS all the very best.

I came to know about Agile through a friend of mine. After hearing the details I was interested in learning it and I started to look for places in Sri Lanka which conduct the course. The only place I could find in Sri Lanka was ?Project Management Solutions? (PMS). After attending the first class I realized PMS has a unique way of teaching. Mr. Duminda gives us not only the knowledge of Agile theories, but also the practical knowledge by giving us small team work during the class. Those team events helped me immensely to get better understanding on all the theories taught in the class throughout. I should thank PMS and the team and especially Mr. Duminda for all the help given to me in getting myself prepared for the exam. And my special thanks go to him for the time he spent with me in clarifying my doubts. The PMS doors were open anytime for their students. After doing the PMI-ACP exam I realized PMS has given us all the knowledge that is sufficient for the exam and Mr. Duminda have done a tremendous job while preparing the ACP preparation notes. Because all of the above, I will recommend PMS ACP preparation program to anyone who is interested in doing the exam. I wish Mr. Duminda and PMS all the very best in all the future endeavors.

I must thank Mr. Duminda to take the initiative for PMI-ACP preparation program in Sri Lanka. It really shows the greater commitment of Mr. Duminda and his team because it is indeed a really challenging. There were no BOK or books but Dr. Duminda has prepared the ACP study guide and mock exams referring all the recommended books which I found very comprehensive which have not missed a single important topic. Also I must mention that, the day before my exam, he was there only because of me to facilitate for my last mock exam even he had a very long tired day. I must specially thank to him because I have never experienced such hospitality from any training or place. Further, the knowledge I got from the program not only helped me to pass the exam but also to apply in real environment. It cleared many doubts and helped me to identify the anti-patterns which were used by us. I strongly recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn Agile and success in PMI-ACP. I wish Dr. Duminda and PMS all the very best.
