SandboxModel Approved as Registered Education Provider by Project Management Institute
Project Management learning leader SandboxModel today announces that the Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s largest project management member association, has named it as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) effective April 1st, 2015. 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 $88,000 (USD). SandboxModel provides experiential project management learning. By using the award winning PTB simulation technology, trainees get a chance to learn "hands on". Learning by doing improves the learning process. It's also more engaging and fun.
“Becoming a PMI R.E.P. signals our commitment to serving the project management community.” Said Guy Shtub, CEO of SandboxModel. “Our goal is help project teams improve their skills. Our unique simulation software allows learners to achieve this goal by actually doing rather than by just listening. Great decision-making requires experience. By practicing in a safe, controlled environment, trainees gain hands-on project management experience.”
SandboxModel 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.
