I took a core college course with Dr. Flores towards my MSPM degree. Through our discussions and my informing him of my plan and desire to obtain my PMP, Dr. Flores introduced me to the Kool Derby Academy preparation of the PMP exam. I believe that both his academic and PMP courses were key to my success in passing the PMP exam on my first try. Dr. Flores knows the material at a masterly-level, operationally and academically. 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 supplementation to my project management knowledge, and enhanced my 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.
