Purdue University Professional Engineering Development today announces that the Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s largest project management member association, has named it as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.). R.E.P.s are organizations that have been approved by PMI to help project managers achieve and maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)® and other PMI professional credentials. 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 global median salaries for the profession now exceed $81,000 (USD).

Courses are led by highly skilled project management practitioners with decades of consulting and industry experience. They provide online learners with hands-on instruction and a wealth of field knowledge, solid foundational skills, and exceedingly effective preparation for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam.
“Purdue is proud to offer its online Project Management Essentials and PMP® Exam Preparation courses as an R.E.P. of the Project Management Institute,” said John Wellman, Purdue University program director. “We share the Institute’s commitment to quality education and are honored by this designation.”
