Recently I attended a weeklong PMP prep class for PMI’s PMP certification exam, conducted by Dr. Walters. He is definitely a subject matter expert and an excellent professor. I am fortunate that I attended his class.

From the onset of the class, the thought of taking a five-day intensive PMP prep course was intimidating, but Dr. Walters made the material consumable and manageable. I did not have much formal project management experience prior to taking the course, but after taking the class I was able to immediately apply the knowledge that I gained at work, and I have confidence that when I sit for the exam, I will pass on the first attempt. The coaching did not end on the last day of class; Dr. Walters has continued to be a valuable resource for me in navigating my path towards achieving my PMP certification.

Dr. Walters brought into the classroom a seamless blend of his expert knowledge of the PMBOK, extensive experience in the field, and educational excellence unlike any other. His methods allowed me to understand the fundamentals of project management from day one. By the end of the boot camp, I was prepared to think like a PM and I passed the certification exam on my very first attempt! I will always be a better PM because of him.

“From passing my ITIL exam to passing my grad school project management class to tutoring sessions for my PMP exam, Dr. Walters helped me extensively. His teaching style exemplifies all the qualities of an effective trainer and skilled leader; excellent verbal and non-verbal communication skills, creativity that forced me to think outside of the box and look at the subject from a different perspective, flexibility, and most importantly enthusiasm for the material which allowed me to relate and understand the material. I recommend taking Dr. Walters’ training sessions to help prepare for the exams. Thank you for working with me, Dr. Walters!”

I was a student in an ITIL certification class that Dr. Derrick Walters recently taught and I found the class very interesting and informative. More importantly, I was successful in passing the ITIL certification exam at the conclusion of the class. During the class, Dr. Walters frequently used real-world examples of IT scenarios in the environments of class members. I anticipate that this will benefit each of us going forward and I look forward to considering Dr. Walters a friend and colleague in the future.

Dr. Walters’ PMP Prep class was well structured and executed. He created an environment that allowed all participants to learn. He clearly possesses project management knowledge, interjecting practical hands-on experiences throughout. Dr. Walters training prepared me to gain my PMP certification on my first attempt. Shortly after passing the PMP exam, I acquired a role as a Project Manager. In 25 months, I advanced from a Project Manager I to a Project Manager III. I thank Dr. Walters for his role in building my solid knowledge of effective project management.
