PMI® Registered Education Provider

What is a Registered Education Provider (REP)?

An REP is an organization approved by PMI® to issue Professional Development Units (PDU) for its training courses.

Courses offered by PMI® Registered Education Providers (R.E.P.), PMI® components — chapters, specific interest groups (SIGs), colleges — and PMI® are pre-approved for Contact Hours in fulfillment of certification eligibility requirements, as well as PDUs to fulfill the Project Management Professional (PMP®) Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) . The eligibility of Contact Hours/PDUs from other sources is the responsibility of certification candidates and will be determined on a case-by-case basis. The REP program has been designed to enhance the ongoing professional development of PMI®'s members, those credentialed through PMI® and others in the project management profession.

When PMI® introduced the CCR Program in 1999, PMI® members and staff knew that PMP® credential holders would need accessible ways to earn the 60 PDUs required each three-year cycle. They set out to create a global system to recognize training providers that followed PMI® -established criteria. Thus, the REP program was born.

The program features an extensive range of organizations committed to serving the professional development needs of the industry. Organizations include commercial training providers, colleges and universities, corporations, government and state agencies, and more than 250 PMI® component and communities in more than 70 countries.

Over the years, the REP program has been revised and improved to ensure those that have earned REP status are capable of providing effective training. While it is impossible for PMI® to guarantee the success of every REP training activity, all organizations met the criteria at the time of their review. All REP's are reviewed every three years.
