We sent an email to all R.E.P.s and Chapter Leaders on 11 November 2019 announcing changes to the R.E.P. program. To ensure a more consistent and high-quality training experience for our customers, R.E.P.s that opt into our new program, which launches on 1 July 2020, will experience:
Easier Connections between R.E.P.s and Candidates. A new training provider hub on PMI.org will direct customers searching for high-quality training to our list of affiliated providers.
Digital Training Options for Customers. A program platform that enables a digital instructor-led experience for you and your customers that transcends geographic limitations. Options will also include a self-paced program for underserved populations/geographies.
Standardized, PMI-Approved Content. Across the network, training partners will be required to use PMI-provided course materials to lead PMP Exam Preparation. We will also supply more resources, including instructor manuals, exam prep course syllabi, and marketing support to help providers scale their businesses.
Instructors Customers Can Trust. A mandatory “train the trainer” program to ensure instructors are using best practices to drive student success.
Revised Fee Structure. An adjusted annual program membership fee and a new per-person training fee.
We realize this is a big change, but we are still working out some of the final specifications. We will communicate specific details and next steps in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please contact REPsupport@pmi.org.
