High-Quality Training From PMI

If you offer PMP® exam prep, you’ll benefit from our Authorized Training Partner Train the Trainer – PMP® Exam Prep course. It’s a requirement for instructors and proves to your students that your training meets the rigorous PMI standard for quality.

Instructors must have agile experience and a PMP certification in good standing in order to teach PMP exam prep training. They must also submit a professional bio before they can enroll in the training.
