“In January 2012 I invited NK to speak at the PMI KC-Mid-America chapter dinner meeting about Risk Management. He was a hit with the attendees; receiving high scores. He engages the audience and is able to explain concepts in language and through examples that everyone can comprehend. He was invited to return in September. I have such high confidence in NK’s knowledge and ability to teach others that I have recommended him for private teaching opportunities in the Kansas City area.

“RefineM’s PMI-ACP Exam Prep course was exactly the type of training I needed to help me successfully prepare for the ACP exam. NK Shrivastava, the trainer was extremely knowledgeable in the core principles and foundations of Agile and his real world experience provided relatable examples to actual usage and application of Agile outside of the classroom. I have attended many trainings before but the course material and smaller classroom setting really makes RefineM stand out among other training classes.”
—Kari Boots, PMP, PMI-ACP, Program Manager, Valorem Consulting

“I took the RefineM Exam Prep course taught by NK and passed the exam five days after the last class. Each question that was raised by a student was met with real-world application of PMBOK® Guide principles.”
