PMI R.E.P.s are educational organizations that have demonstrated that they are capable of providing world-class effective project management training. Through PMI’s rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification, and instructional design, R.E.P.s provide the project management training necessary to earn and to maintain Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)® and other PMI professional credentials.
“Back in 2006, we introduced a more formal project management approach to our business,” said David Beckett, senior vice president, registration and onsite services for Experient. “It has proven to improve overall client satisfaction through stronger tactical consultation and timeline management, a key differentiator for Experient. Projects stay on track, which lowers costs and improves quality. With our new designation with PMI, we now have the ability to accelerate personnel development for a larger number of employees. And by applying the professional techniques learned from PMI, we will discover even more applicable tools to help our customers.”
Experient will begin administering the PMP Exam preparatory course this summer. This 35-hour course will provide participants the knowledge and skills needed to pass the PMI PMP certification exam and to better perform project management in their jobs at Experient.
“PMI’s recent survey of training providers shows that 80 percent of organizations seeking suppliers of project management training strongly prefer to work with PMI R.E.P.s. They view their affiliation with PMI, as the leading standard-setting professional association for project management, as a stamp of quality on the training services they purchase,” said Edwin Andrews, Ph.D., director of academic and educational programs and services at PMI. “Organizations want to protect their investment in project management training, and they know that a PMI R.E.P. delivers such training in a cost-effective and efficient manner.”
Currently, there are over 1,300 R.E.P.s in more than 70 countries. These organizations include commercial training providers that design complete educational systems, academic institutions, internal training offices at corporations and government agencies.
