Manchester, NH (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Project Management Institute (PMI®), the world’s leading project management member association, has named Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.), effective November 1, 2012. To earn this distinction, SNHU met rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification and instructional design. R.E.P.s enable project managers to achieve and maintain Project Management Professional (PMP®), Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®), Program Management Professional (PgMP®), and other PMI® professional credentials.
Recent research by the PMI® confirmed what businesses, job boards and the media have been reporting for the past two years – project management is one of the hottest professions in the world. The PMI® Project Management Salary Survey – Seventh Edition noted that organizations are increasingly recognizing the value of trained project managers to their overall business goals. Salaries continue to climb for Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential holders, with average earnings of 16 percent more than non-credentialed project managers.
“SNHU's R.E.P. status enables students who take QSO 645 (Project Management for PMP® Certification) in our project management graduate programs, to satisfy the educational requirement of 35 hours of project management education for the PMP® exam,” said Kishore Kumar Pochampally, Ph.D., PMP®, Six Sigma Black Belt (ASQ), associate professor and chairperson of the Department of Quantitative Studies, Operations and Project Management at SNHU’s School of Business.
