International Institute for Learning, Inc. (IIL) today announced a three-phase endeavor to ensure complete coverage of recently revised industry standards for over 100 related courses, further establishing IIL as the global leader in professional project, program, and portfolio management training. As a full service provider of learning solutions, IIL will integrate four different standard updates into their portfolio, including the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide - Fourth Edition) from the Project Management Institute (PMI®).
"Innovation is the spirit that drives us forward. Our industry experts have been working diligently to guarantee that our clients have the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art tools to ensure that they remain competitive in today's marketplace," said E. LaVerne Johnson, Founder and CEO of IIL. "IIL is pleased to provide our clients with the flexibility to choose courses that will comply with the former or latest editions of standards, ultimately ensuring that they receive the highest level of preparation for industry certification during this transition period."
Additional standard updates include The Standard for Program Management - Second Edition, The Standard for Portfolio Management - Second Edition, and the Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3®) - Second Edition, each from PMI®.
To further assist clients in acclimating to the new editions, IIL will release unique comparative analyses of the various editions to accompany the redesigned courseware.
"When we took on the enormous task of incorporating the standard updates into our portfolio, we wanted to ensure that we improved all of our courses, offering our clients deeper, broader, and more flexible learning solutions," said Angyne Schock-Smith, Senior Instructional Designer for IIL's Global Learning Solutions. "With this in mind, we created exclusive comparative analyses, providing our clients with our own unique observations and comparisons for the updates."
IIL's updated portfolio will roll out in accordance with the standards' release dates from PMI®, with the first round of new editions available after February 10. The first round includes all Advanced Project Management Certification (APMC®) courses, Project Management Fundamentals, and Project Management Fundamentals for Information Technology.
