New Horizons Computer Learning Centers Approved as a Registered Education Provider by Project Management Institute
New Horizons Computer Learning Centers announces that Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s largest project management member association, has named it as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) effective November 1, 2014. R.E.P.s are organizations that have been approved by PMI to help project managers achieve and maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP)® and other PMI professional credentials. These organizations have met PMI’s rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification and instructional design.
Professionals Benefit from Certifications
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 $85,000 (USD). New Horizons has been pre-approved by PMI to offer professional development units (PDUs) on Project Management Professional classes, which means PDU claims are expedited for processing.
“As a long-time provider of business skills and project management training, it’s encouraging to be recognized as a R.E.P. for PMI,” noted Derek Wright, CEO of 5Point Enterprises/New Horizons Computer Learning Centers. “Now, not only are we able to offer clients and students PMI-approved project management certifications, but this recognition allows us to provide continuing education credits as well, which are of a growing importance for professional career growth and licensure.”
New Horizons 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.
