PMI Approves SolutionsIQ to Provide Project Management Training
Redmond, WA —
SolutionsIQ today announces it is now approved by Project Management Institute as a PMI Registered Education Provider (REP).
PMI REPs 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, REPs provide the project management training necessary to earn and to maintain Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)®, and other PMI professional credentials.
SolutionsIQ offers both public and private Agile training courses that are appropriate for any role — software delivery teams, programmers, testers, other engineers, and project managers, as well as business leaders and executives. The hands-on training provides the knowledge and skills required to realize the full benefits of Agile.
“PMI will soon offer Agile certification via its PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) Program”, said Charlie Rudd, CEO, SolutionsIQ. “The program will validate the ability of practitioners to understand Agile principles and concepts so they can demonstrate to employers and project stakeholders that the use of Agile is among their project management skills, and that they can apply its techniques based on project needs. SolutionsIQ’s Certified ScrumMaster Training and Certified Scrum Product Owner Training will prepare students for certification — each course’s 14 PDUs count toward the 21 that are required for the credential.”
“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 REPs. 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 REP delivers such training in a cost-effective and efficient manner.”
Currently, there are over 1,400 REPs 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.
With more than 30 years of experience, SolutionsIQ has a deep understanding of software delivery excellence. The company’s broad range of consulting and training services are essential to any Agile development project or transformation, and gives customers the tools and collaboration they need to succeed. SolutionsIQ is uniquely equipped to help organizations leverage modern Agile software development and project management methods to deliver solutions more reliably, with less risk and at lower cost.
