Education To Go (ed2go), part of Cengage Learning and a leading provider of online courses for adult continuing education students, today announced it has been approved by Project Management Institute (PMI) as a PMI Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.).

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.

ed2go’s online career training programs and courses help students improve their knowledge and skills in project management and train for the next step in their professional development. Using a unique blend of interactive learning, real-world case study applications and solid project management principles, ed2go prepares students for what they will face in today’s fast-paced business world.

“We are proud to have been approved as a Project Management R.E.P. by the Project Management Institute,” said Jerry Weissberg, vice president, ed2go. “We work hard to ensure that ed2go’s online project management curricula meet the highest industry standards. This approval from the Project Management Institute is further validation of our commitment to providing customers with quality, engaging online instruction.”

“PMI’s recent survey of training providers shows that 80 percent of organizations seeking project management training strongly prefer to work with PMI R.E.P.s. They view their affiliation with PMI, 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 this training in a cost-effective and efficient manner.”

Currently, there are over 1,300 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.
