They Say

I recently took a PMP bootcamp with Cecilio in Sacramento and it exceeded my expectations. I had been trying to self-study for the PMP exam and was having difficulty with understanding the content. After taking the bootcamp, not only did my understanding of the material drastically improve, but my test score improved. I have taken crash courses in the past and have had trouble staying awake due to the delivery of the content, but not with this class. Cecilio was an engaging instructor that provided interesting explanations regarding the various content areas and made the class enjoyable. If I could, I would take another class with Cecilio as the instructor.

I recently took a PMP Boot Camp with CJ in Sacramento and as someone else stated, it exceeded my expectations! CJ’s presentation style kept us engaged, made some very dry content easy to understand and remember. Though I did a lot of reading, attended several online classes before this boot camp, I seriously doubted my ability to pass the PMP exam. But after this class and using the study material CJ provided us I feel that my understanding of the material has greatly improved and I no longer fear taking the exam. Thank you CJ!!

Passing the PMP requires the investment of the boot camp in order to be successful. You’ll find many offerings for this service but you’ll need to choose one that will offer a level of service above the rest. There is a reason why CJ’s classes are almost always full, it’s because he concentrates on the key components from the PMBOK as well as a highly detailed PowerPoint presentation. The value of the course is in the tips and helpful advice he adds, it’s essential in order to pass the exam….he’s engaged for the entire 4 days and keeps the pace going as well as answering all questions, completely. Passed the PMP exam and couldn’t be more satisfied.

Cecilio came highly recommended by my wife and I had the opportunity to sit in his class a couple of months after she completed her course. My wife wasn’t kidding – Cecilio came to the class prepared and had an energy about him when talking about project management that truly made me believe that he has found his calling. CJ is funny, patient, kind, and helpful, and he has a seemingly endless supply of real-life examples he can use to illustrate his points and bring some very complex concepts to life. I would highly recommend any course that CJ teaches as you will come out of the class with much greater clarity about the topic.

David S. Strategic Program & Operations Manager at Accenture

The instructor was great at adjusting to, and working with, the class and it’s pace. Real world, practical scenarios used were extremely helpful in understanding the material. I started the course discouraged, thinking I wouldn’t be able to understand the material but CJ made it manageable in the best way possible.

The instructor used multiple teaching methods conducive to learning for a variety of students. Material was an overload, but the presentation of it was very helpful.

Laurnina Lanham Global Program Manager, Strategic Operations Environmental Health and Safety

CJ is very patient and accommodated our needs. He simplified concepts that we were struggling with, He answered our questions, and he made himself available afterwards for more questions.

J. Nikolai Carlson Lead Program Manager at Cruise Automation

Cecilio is an exceptional instructor. He is a natural born teacher; one of those rare people who can master a body of knowledge but still remember what it is like to not know it, so that he can better guide you.

Debbie Shen Program Manager | Exploratorium Teacher Institute

Cecilio is a very interactive instructor and is incredibly knowledgeable in the field of Project Management. You can tell he definitely has passion.

Shirley TSE Founder, Arctinea

CJ is a great teacher and presenter. Good balance between PMA, PMBOK, test, PMP. The practical applications of concepts and information were great. I have taken formal project management training at CSU, Cornelius Fletchner, and PMITC. This is by far the best training I’ve had. The instructor was top notch in making the material understandable and presented in an easily digestible way.

Tracy Griffin MS, PMP, SR IT Project Manager, Healthcare

GRAMMY-recognized Record Producer, Digital Music Curator/Strategist, Jazz Genre Expert, Musician Cecilio, our instructor. Great teacher, very dynamic and engaging. Used real world examples that made the material easier to understand. He provided a great way to learn a lot of material in the short amount of time.

William Nick Phillips

We have a saying here, “Do something right; thank them” … He is a smart, supportive and customer-focused champion that I wish to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to. He carried himself with authority, commanded leadership, and exuded charisma. His level of dedication to our project was truly appreciated. As challenges arose, Cecilio was completely successful in removing the burden, thereby allowing my team and I to concentrate on the job at hand.

Anonymous Senior IT MGR - NetApp

Cecilio was my point of contact to support LSI’s corporate relocation to San Jose, California. We had hundreds of rack mounted computers and storage units, mostly undocumented. Frankly, it was a complete mess. Cecilio delivered with a process, a team and tangible results. As issues were discovered, we had to change and extend the plan a few times before we finished, but it all worked out. I credit Cecilio with his skill and experience for making this potential nightmare a move that is now behind us. We would not have been successful without his leadership and team.
