SMMI Welcomes Jerry Kidd to Instructor Team

I am absolutely thrilled to be writing this post.  The Social Media Marketing Institute is pleased to welcome Jerry Kidd to our team of instructors.  Jerry is an experienced instructor with close to 500 training courses delivered in his career.  I met Jerry four years ago when he instructed a technology training in my office.  I am a tech geek and I spent a good portion of my career training sales people, so I am typically bored to tears in training classes.  I have sat through many courses with my eyes rolled back in my head.  Quite honestly, I didn’t sit in that day to learn something, I sat in to judge the training.

Jerry surprised me that day, and continues to delight me with new information and gadgets regardless if I am sitting in on one of his trainings or grabbing lunch with him. Jerry is located in the San Francisco Bay Area and will be teaching SMMI courses throughout California, Hawaii and beyond.

Jerry is 23 year veteran of the real estate industry, has listed and sold houses, managed real estate offices and has also been the IT Director for a major Northern California real estate company. Throughout his career, Jerry has focused on the importance of continuing education.  He has earned numerous real estate designations including the GRI, CRS, and CRB. Along the way Jerry also earned three Microsoft certifications, MCP, MCP+I and MCSE, as well as one from Cisco, CCNA. Rounding out his list of technology certifications are two from COMPTIA, an A+ and a Network+.
Jerry was formerly the Training Director for Pacific Union GMAC Real Estate in San Francisco, CA.  He is a California State Certified Instructor for the GRI program, presenting courses on listing techniques, technology and advanced technology applications.  Additionally, Jerry is a Buffini Certified Mentor.
