The Catholic University of America has been named as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) by the Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s largest project management member association.

R.E.P.s are organizations that have been approved by PMI to help project managers achieve and maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP), Program Management Professional (PgMP)  and other PMI professional credentials. These organizations have met PMI’s rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification, and instructional design.

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 $81,000. The Metropolitan School of Professional Studies (MSPS) at Catholic University will offer project-management training to working adults from across the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan area.

“As project management techniques become increasingly important in a variety of industries and organizations, offering project-management training for working adults will provide them with more opportunities to advance in their current careers or transition into another career path,” said Vincent Kiernan, dean of MSPS.

Catholic University 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.
