Founded in 2013, e-learning company Brain Sensei prepares students for the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification exam through a series of eight modules. Brain Sensei is unique in that it utilizes quizzes, practice questions, and an animated story of a female Samurai in Feudal Japan to reinforce key project management concepts.
Brain Sensei stands behind its course with a guarantee that you’ll pass the PMP certification exam. As a Project Management Institute (PMI)® Registered Education Provider (REP), Brain Sensei meets all requirements for exam preparation including qualifying students for the 35 contact hours needed to write the exam.
Students have the option to purchase the full eight-module certification prep course for $499.00 or they can opt for standalone modules starting at $64.99. Individual modules include the following:
Brain Sensei displays screenshot previews of what the modules look like including format, table of contents, and a sampling of the content. Plus, the company offers a free trial if you want to test out part of the course before committing to the six months. During your six-month membership period, you can review the modules as often as you want.

Brain Sensei’s PMP course is convenient in that all you need is an internet connection and you can access the modules with a tablet, smartphone, or laptop. But this also means that when you don’t have an internet connection, you can’t access course materials.
Brain Sensei courses do not work within the Microsoft Edge browser.
When you purchase the PMP certification course or any of the standalone modules, you have only six months to complete the course before it expires, so make sure you’ll have the time to complete it within that time frame prior to purchasing.
