Want to know why CJ does this?

We can sing CJ’s praise as a speaker, a teacher and an employer all day long, but in the end, the opinions that matters most, are those of the many students and professionals who have taken the courses and who have experienced first-hand what CJ has brought to the table. We invite you to hear what they’ve had to say.

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.

CJ is a great teacher and presenter. Good balance between PM Skills, 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.

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.

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!!

CJ is abundantly knowledgeable in project management and so many other areas the field touches. It takes a unique individual to be able to transfer that knowledge so seamlessly to so many people. He is always willing to provide practical examples and share best practices. The best part is he genuinely tries to connect to you and make the content relatable. I wholeheartedly recommend CJ. His professionalism, ambition, and charisma are unequaled

Cecilio (our instructor) 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.

I honestly believe without CJ Mills and PMP boot camp, I would not have passed the exam. I had a long journey to my exam. I was on a roll, took the class, applied for the exam, and was waiting for approval, then BAM, life happened. I was offered a job right before the holidays. I was still working on my test, but was running around getting what was required for the new job and the holidays. Well the new job fell through due to location. Then BAM, I got call from the doctor. Major Surgery was required. So life was put on hold for a couple of months. Then BAM, kid decided right before graduating High School, it was time to rebel. So life is still on hold. Got through that, then dusted off the books. Re-read the PMBOK, reviewed notes from an on-line course I took. Tried to get into Rita’s book, but it was not until I got out my notes from CJ’s class that it all come together. I remembered his test taking techniques. I reviewed the handouts every day for 2 weeks. Reviewed all the information in the binder and my notes. Went and took the test, and PASSED! I’m so gratefully for CJ’s assistances and not giving up on me. It took me over a year after the class to take the test, and he is still here for me. I wouldn’t recommend waiting that long, but it showed me just how good his class is. Thank you CJ!!!.

Michelle Nigipali
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 mStrategic Program & Operations Manager at Accentureade it manageable in the best way possible.

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 from a high level. 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 trying to stay 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.

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.

CJ had excellent energy, consistency, and positivity. He was clear about the objectives of the course, provided relevant examples, and gave constructive advice and attention. Great experience.

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.
