Norcross, Georgia (PRWEB) October 4, 2010
Synaptus today announces it is now approved by Project Management Institute to become a PMI Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) effective September 2010.
PMI R.E.P.s are educational organizations that have demonstrated that they are capable of providing world-class effective project management training. Through PMI’s rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification, and instructional design, R.E.P.s provide the project management training necessary to earn and to maintain Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)® and other PMI professional credentials.
Synaptus offers public and private courses on Lean-Agile Project Management, Lean-Agile Program Management, KANBAN: Successful Evolutionary Change for your Technology Organization, and Strategic Backlog Management: Feeding the Agile Beast.
“We are excited to expand our long standing relationship with PMI into the PMI R.E.P. program. In addition to supporting the development of OPM3® Second Edition, participating on the OPM3® Services Advisory Group, serving on the PMI Agile Community of Practice board, and providing our offerings through PMI’s Seminar World, we are now formally aligning all of our training efforts with PMI,” said Dennis Stevens, President of Synaptus. “It is very clear that collaborating with PMI in providing the leading Lean-Agile Project and Program Management training is the best way to provide value to today’s enterprises.”
“PMI’s recent survey of training providers shows that 80 percent of organizations seeking suppliers of project management training strongly prefer to work with PMI R.E.P.s. They view their affiliation with PMI, as the leading standard-setting professional association for project management, as a stamp of quality on the training services they purchase,” said Edwin Andrews, Ph.D., director of academic and educational programs and services at PMI. “Organizations want to protect their investment in project management training, and they know that a PMI R.E.P. delivers such training in a cost-effective and efficient manner.”
Currently, there are over 1,400 R.E.P.s in more than 70 countries. These organizations include commercial training providers that design complete educational systems, academic institutions, internal training offices at corporations and government agencies.
