Client Testimonials

  • Today’s presentation over Emotional Intelligence was very interesting and certainly important to Program Managers. Our guest presenter, Mr. Gary Rechtfertig, was energetic and knowledgeable about this topic and provided a great deal of valuable information about working with and leading people. He made several great points that can be implemented into our day to day interaction with others. “Focus, not react”, “Replace negative thoughts with positive ones”, and “Know your vision and write it down” are a few that really stuck with me and speak to my weaknesses. These are areas that I can focus on strengthening in order to become a successful PM and leader. Overall, I think this was an excellent presentation and beneficial for not only PMs but for anyone who works with others.

  • MS Project 2007 w Server class - For me it was the perfect Class at the right time. I only thought I knew how to use MS Project, (boy was I wrong). The whole experience was first class. Beginning with the professionalism of the instructor to the quality of the equipment used for the class. I would recommend this class to everyone.

  • Gary, I sincerely want to thank you for what you have done for me. Your class provided me the training and knowledge I needed to pass the test. Your excellent teaching style makes all the difference. It is so obvious that you are indeed passionate about your students succeeding. That is why I passed, and why I am back now for the Advanced MBA level course of study. The training you provided me helped me so much in my current job, and I know it will be of great value in future jobs. I am a fan for life, in fact, if you had a fan club, I would be president!

  • It is my pleasure to recommend the PMP preparation class. Gary has the right knowledge and information to fully prepare an individual for the PMP exam. He provides his classes with the tools to get the job done! Gary's classroom presentation keeps the class light , which helps relieve the pressure of learning the information. Gary was always willing to put in the time to ensure the class understood the material, as long as the class was willing to put in the effort. Thanks to Gary, I passed the PMP test on my first attempt!!

  • I truly wish I would have taken Gary's Emotional Intelligence course after getting my PMP. It believe it would have improved my project performance, as well as helped me advance my career faster. I have already seen an improvement in project performance by applying things I learned in the course.

  • Another PMP! Thank you for all that you did though this process. Your support, your knowledge, your patience and understanding was exceptional. This was very enjoyable for me (stressful) but I did learn. Thank You.

  • Today’s session over Emotional Intelligence (EI) was a great learning experience and opportunity for all L-3 Employees. Mr. Rechtfertig has a great deal of knowledge and experience on the subject and provided the group with a vast amount of useful information. It was interesting to learn that only 10% of managers are familiar with EI, even though it makes up 70% of our intelligence. He explained that only 30% is actual IQ based intelligence. We as employees must learn how to recognize and manage our emotions, as well as the emotions of those around us. Today’s session was full of helpful tips and essential information that we, as future PMs, will be able to use to help increase performance in ourselves and our teams. I am very pleased that I had the opportunity to attend this session and greatly appreciate Mr. Rechtfertig taking the time to come visit L-3 Communications.

  • "Gary was an exemplary instructor. He was not only clear and concise on the material we needed to study for the PMP certification, but also patient to guide us and explain the reasoning behind the choices. His dedication to mentor Program Managers into the PMI and PMP world shows a skill set few other individuals can demonstrate."

  • I wanted to stop and take a minute to write a testimonial of my incredible experience with you at Doulos. I want you to understand just what kind of support you can expect from Doulos PM Training, Gary in particular. The training was intense (with emphasis on intense) but it is manageable even with a fulltime job and family. Gary is experienced, supportive, patient and understanding. The class was excellent, well worth the investment and although I have experience as a project manager Gary brought a lot of knowledge to the table that I will carry with me. There was a ‘glitch’ on the day I was scheduled to sit for my exam and Gary, supportive as always had contacts at PMI for me which helped me get the situation resolved as quickly as possible. I strongly recommend you consider this class prior to sitting for the exam regardless of the number of years of project management experience you have. Best of luck although you won’t need luck if you follow the plan and heed Gary’s recommendations.

  • I can't tell you how much my PMP has helped. I wish I could say my job is easier but it's not. From the time I started studying for my PMP and had the part time position with a start up consulting firm, I doubled my salary, (If I was working full-time, but I was only part-time), so I have more than doubled my salary from 2008.

  • Before starting the Emotional Intelligence class, I thought I was in touch with my emotions.  What I learned was; I was in touch only with the reaction I was having vs. the root cause of those reactions.  Understanding the difference has made all the difference both at work and home.
    The study of EI surprised me. There was a noticeable difference both in how I perceived my job & coworkers and I believe in how they perceived me after the changes I learned to make.  Work has been drastically more harmonious since EI changed how I act and  react to the stresses of the job.    Thanks for the class

  • Gary was excellent. His no nonsense common sense approach to relationships both in and out of the work environment really made you think and assess how you approach day to day interactions.

  • "Gary's Emotional Intelligence class is a must for everyone. It helps to know this at work and all relationships in personal life. I think college age and beyond can benefit from this course. It teaches you about how to handle other people, their reactions, and more importantly about yourself and your reactions to situations. It is a superb class!"

  • If anyone is seriously considering obtaining their PMP Certification, I highly recommend Gary's PMP Prep Course. Not only does Gary have the knowledge and expertise in Project Management, but he is also dedicated to assist you in building your career. The course provides step-by-step guidance to preparing yourself for the exam. The knowledge that you walk away with after taking this class is overwhelming. After passing the exam, I quickly realized how much of a demand there is for PMP's in the business world. Best of luck to all of you who decide to GROW and enhance your career... the choice is yours. My best advice is "follow the program" as Gary instructs. Again, I'd like to thank you for your dedication, support, and genuine care you demonstrate to your students.

  • "I first met Gary at a large client site. My project reported into Gary’s program oversight. Gary set the example of excellence in project management and was recognized as an advocate for the project management profession, who encouraged PMI certification.

    Later, when a colleague shared that he had completed the Doulos PMP training course and passed the exam, it was no surprise to find Doulos was founded by Gary. I completed the PMP prep training course and received my certification. What Gary says is true, if you follow the program of study, you will pass the exam.

Gary and his excellent fellow instructors always do a great job by sharing their knowledge, experience to deliver and identifying the student interests and knowledge. I highly recommend the classes at Doulos PM Training for PMP certification and Advanced Project Management Training."

  • The Doulos MS Project Server class helped me take my understanding of MS Project to a new level. Not only did I learn new how to use the tool more effectively, I leaned how to apply the course material to solve real-life work problems. The integration of project management theory, a case study, hands-on exercises and small class size really made a difference. The class was definitely worth the money.

  • Thanks to everyone for a great Advanced PM class. Craig was terrific in keeping the class fun and interesting. The real strength of the class was the participation of each individual and the different industries and situations represented.
