New York, NY (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
For Sustainability Professionals with an eye to the future, the recent Green Festival in New York City was the place to be, and the booth to visit was that of Cheetah Learning (http://www.CheetahLearning.com), recognized worldwide as a pioneer in the field of “Accelerated Learning.”
According to news reports, an estimated 25,000 people, 300 exhibitors and 125 speakers were involved in the two-day festival at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, which was described as “the world’s premier event dedicated to sustainability, social justice and ecological balance.”
Attendees to Cheetah’s booth included Sustainability Professionals considering Project Management as a way to enhance their proficiency portfolio as well as Project Managers pondering “Project Management Certificate for Sustainability Projects,” a course designed to develop skills to competently and consistently lead sustainability projects.
"The Green Festival was a fantastic experience for Cheetah Learning,” said Kristen LaBrosse, CAPM, Cheetah’s Marketing Director. “We received a great deal of interest from Sustainability Professionals who wanted to make sure their skills were marketable and that they were qualified to perform sustainability projects, and found that Project Management and PMP certification was exactly what they needed.”
During the course of the April 21-22 weekend, Cheetah gave away a new iPad in a drawing. The winner was Joseph Moreira from the Green City Force, a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization. In addition, Cheetah promoted a number of courses, including:
Project Energy Independence
PM Skills & Development Course
Effective Project Management Practices
Influence Strategies for Project Managers
Cheetah Exam Prep for the PMP Exam
Cheetah Exam Prep for the PMP Online Program
Project Management Master's Certificate Program

Cheetah Learning came to prominence a dozen years ago when it introduced the concept of “Accelerated Learning.” Prior to Cheetah’s arrival, participants typically studied for six months to prepare for the Certification Exam to get their Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. The fail rate: 40 percent.
In 2001, Cheetah Learning introduced “Accelerated Learning.” The intense, yet engaging, classes lasted just four days; the increase in the number of people who passed the Certification Exam was dramatic: An average of 98 percent.
“Our students rapidly expand their success story by using accelerated learning techniques combined with project management skills,” explains Cheetah’s CEO and founder Michelle LaBrosse who, as a single mother of two, grew the company into a multi-million dollar powerhouse in the Project Management education field, a competitive arena with 1,600 providers who are registered with PMI.
For its efforts, PMI recognized Cheetah Learning with a Professional Development Provider of the Year Award. Plus, Cheetah has maintained the highest audited continuous pass rate for 10 years.
In recognition of her contributions to the industry, the Institute named LaBrosse one of the 25 Most Influential Women in Project Management in the World. Her books “Cheetah Negotiations,” “Cheetah Project Management” and “Cheetah Know How,” are available at http://www.CheetahStore.com.
