Common Questions about our PMI-PBA Exam Prep Course in Sante Fe, NM

Am I guaranteed to pass the PMI-PBA Exam?

Red Rock Research offers an optional first-time passing guarantee for the PMI-PBA exam.  This means we guarantee you will pass the test on your first try.  The PMI-PBA is a difficult test and we take are guarantee seriously.  If you don't pass the test on the first try we will pay for your second attempt.  If you don't pass on your second attempt, we will pay for your third attempt.  If you don't pass the PMI-PBA on the third try, PMI requires you to wait an entire calendar year before your next attempt, and Red Rock will refined you the cost of the course minus the test we have paid for already.  Check our guarantee against others and be sure they give you all of your money back, like we do.  We have noted that many other providers keep a 'processing fee' when issuing refunds.
