These organizations have met PMI’s rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification, and instructional design.

Project managers are increasingly turning to R.E.P.s for certification training and maintenance, especially since median salaries for the profession now exceed $100,000 (USD). The Braintrust Consulting Group is a worldwide leader in Agile Project Management Training and Coaching, specifically using Scrum. The Braintrust Consulting Group offers classes ranging from the fundamentals of Agile to certified Scrum training. President and lead trainer, Brian Rabon, is one of only approximately 150 people with the Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST) designation, in the entire world. With a CST on staff The Braintrust Consulting Group can offer Certified Scrum Master® (CSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) courses across the United States and internationally. CSM and CSPO certifications are the most recognized agile certifications worldwide for software development and beyond.

When asked why The Braintrust Consulting Group pursued becoming a PMI R.E.P. Rabon said, “PMI’s reputation as a global leader of Project Management knowledge is very closely aligned with our company’s vision to be the premier “go to" partner for project management expertise. When two organizations with similar visions can partner together, the result is a synergy that can’t be beat.”

The Braintrust Consulting Group joins more than 1,500 R.E.P.s in more than 80 countries. These organizations include commercial training providers, academic institutions, and corporate training departments within corporations and government agencies.
