What is a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.)?
PMI R.E.P.s are organizations that we have approved to offer training in project management and issue professional development units (PDUs) to meet the continuing education requirements needed by PMI credential holders. To earn the R.E.P. designation, a provider must meet or exceed rigorous standards for quality and effectiveness as defined by PMI.
Today, more than 1,600 R.E.P.s offer courses in over 80 countries. R.E.P. organizations include commercial training providers, colleges and universities, corporations, government and state agencies.
We cannot guarantee the success of every R.E.P. training activity. However we carefully review all R.E.P.s every three years to ensure they meet quality criteria.
R.E.P. Program Advisory Group
The R.E.P. program relies on guidance from the volunteer members of the R.E.P. Advisory Group. Advisors are R.E.P.s who use their professional knowledge and expertise to counsel and guide the R.E.P. program administration. Advisors function in an advisory role and do not serve in an authority or approval role.
The advisors help us to identify the needs of global participants, establish and update program policy and criteria for R.E.P.s, critique product or program enhancements, help address any participant or student concerns, and communicate about the program.
Advisors represent a range of R.E.P. types. We appoint R.E.P. Advisory Group members based on defined criteria and an application process. Each R.E.P. Advisory group member serves a three-year term.
R.E.P. advisors for 2014 are:
