Floyd Trotman III, Founder of CertifiNOW LLC, and premiere Project Management Delivery Partner for IBEX, is dedicated to making sure that students pass the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Exam on their first attempt.- all while having a good time. We asked Floyd more about his company, what he does and why he loves doing it…
Q. What do you do?
A. I am the founder of CertifiNOW, LLC. CertifiNOW provides advanced certification training for corporate professionals, consultants, and entrepreneurs. We are known for our “Get Certified – Stay Certified” marketing campaign and enabling students to pass the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) international project management certification exam’s on the 1st attempt. At CertifiNOW, we provide advanced certification training in an accelerated manner. CertifiNOW reduces classroom preparation from 12 months to 3 days! We enable our clients to become certified in project management as PMPs (Project Management Professionals) or CAPMs (Certified Associates in Project Management) after just 3 days of classroom instruction.
Q. What is a little known fact about yourself or one of your favorite hobbies?
A. I am known as a subject management expert (SME) in Project Management with 2 Master Degrees and multiple professional certifications. Therefore, many people are surprised to find out that I was a football player in college. However, I played Division I college football as an undergraduate student at the University of Pittsburgh.
Q. What is the funniest thing that has happened to you in a classroom:
A. I cannot think of the “funniest” thing, however, in each CertifiNOW class there is a lot of laughter. One of our principals is that we are “Boredom-Resistant!” Therefore we have fun in our classes. Students often share funny stories about what “bad” thing happened on their job because they didn’t follow the principles we teach in our project management classes. Many of the stories are hilarious!
Q. Why do you love what you do?
A. I love to help people. In order to help people, you often have to educate them. I love my job because I am helping people in their careers by teaching them the global standard for project management and helping them get internationally certified as project management professionals (PMP or CAPM). I enjoy helping our clients achieve their goals by providing the highest quality content and experience, and by saving them time and money!
In spite of the accelerated nature of our training, we still guarantee that our students will pass their project management certification exams on their 1st attempt! Fulfilling that promise is fun to me. Currently, we have the highest pass rate in the industry because over 90% of our students do pass their certification exams on the 1st attempt.
