First in the world
In October of 1999, the Project Management Institute (PMI) announced that its Project Management Professional (PMP®) Certification Program Department had attained ISO 9001 certification from The National Registry and the Dutch Council for Accreditation (RvA). ISO 9001 certification is an international recognition of a management system that meets the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) criteria for ensuring consistent delivery of products or services. PMP is the first professional certification program ever to receive ISO 9001 certification. This international recognition adds credibility and value to PMI's PMP Certification Program.
