Project Manager III at Rackspace

Jimmie’s class was the key for my success at passing the PMP exam. The way he explains the material makes it easy to digest and understand the concepts. He gives great examples that makes the subject relatable to real life situations and will help you remember when you take the exam. I fully recommend Kool Derby to anyone who is serious about passing the PMP exam. There is no doubt that the tools provided and teaching techniques are invaluable.

Project Lead, Rackspace University

As a Project Lead with Rackspace University, Learning & Development team at Rackspace Hosting, I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Jimmie Flores for the last two years. Dr. Flores has been a tremendous instructor and a huge asset to Rackspace University. I highly recommend Dr. Flores’ Project Management workforce training. Dr. Flores is dedicated to the development of his students and thus far Rackspace University has received exemplary feedback from participants. In class, Dr. Flores has proven to be extremely close to the PMP material is able to continuously updates his delivery to meet Rackspace’s culture and business needs. The success of Rackspace University’s Project Management and ITIL® programs are due to Dr. Flores’s intense knowledge of both subject areas and instruction abilities!

I took two corporate courses with Dr. Flores: Project Management Essentials and Project Management Intermediate. These two classes helped me a lot, and were instrumental in my passing the CAPM on the first try. Dr. Flores taught me not only how to pass the exam, but also how to understand the key project management concepts. His real-life experiences and examples made the difference. I am very grateful! Thanks, Dr. Flores! I am sure this certification will help me start a new path on my career.

PMP Senior Management Coordinator City of San Antonio

I took two courses with Dr. Flores through the Kool Derby Academy in preparation of the PMP exam. I believe that both courses were key to my success in passing the PMP exam on my first try. Dr. Flores knows the material at a masterly-level. This was evident in the way he presented the class material, led discussions, and provided real-life experiences. He creates a classroom environment in which any level of question can comfortably be asked without fear. The numerous online resources made available to students at Kool Derby are extremely beneficial and I know played a role in me passing the exam. Dr. Flores and the Kool Derby academy provided me with a solid foundation of project management and the confidence to do well on the exam. I look forward to taking additional courses from Kool Derby Academy in the future because I know I will receive a solid knowledge base and do so in a fun learning environment.

You did an outstanding job in teaching the course. Your expertise in the subject along with your real world application and experience made the class very informative. You were well-prepared and engaged us to take an active role in the class. Thank you for providing information regarding the PMP and due to this fact, I know will pursue my certification as a PMP.

Again, many thanks for an excellent job.
