Cosa sarà un A.T.P.

Più avanti trovi cosa era un REP, adesso cerchiamo di capire cosa sarà un ATP che sostituirà il REP

PMI Logo

Il PMI lo annuncia così: vedi originale

The new Authorized Training Partner Program will help our customers find high-quality training, and will help you succeed and grow your business in the process. It will replace the current R.E.P. program.

The new program offers you:

  • Ready-to-use, standardized, PMI-developed content for Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification preparation and training
  • Support materials such as instruction manuals and syllabi for PMP® exam prep courses
  • Official training program for PMP exam prep training instructors
  • Recognition as a PMI Authorized Training Partner on PMI.org and other PMI marketing channels
  • Access to a Channel Management Representative for assistance with business management

Your students will benefit from:

  • Access to the highest-quality PMI-vetted PMP exam prep and training content
  • Verified, trusted PMP exam prep and training instructors
  • Faster, more effective trainer searches based on specialties, pricing, location, and more on pmi.org
  • More information on the value of training with a PMI Authorized Training Partner
  • More support on how to identify a PMI Authorized Training Partner vs. non-authorized partner

In pratica è una rivoluzione in termini di organizzazione ed anche contenuti.

Il PMI proporrà l’acquisto di materiale standardizzato per ogni studente. Il nuovo REP (ATP) dovrà solo erogarlo attraverso docenti qualificati.

Application Process Delayed

L’apertura della procedura di ammissione al programma ATP, previsto il 19 Marzo 2020, è stata rinviato a data da destinarsi, a causa del COVID-19.

Resta il fatto che gli attuali REP saranno azzerati il 30 Giugno 2020, salvo ripensamenti del PMI. Cosa accadrà in Luglio? Attendiamo lumi dal PMI.

Il programma ATP prevede due livelli di partecipazione:

  • BASE – minimale
  • PREMIUM – molto più esteso

In comune hanno che i Docenti per essere qualificati devono seguire un corso di formazione di 2 giorni che in differita costa €699. Entrambi i livelli  di ATP rilasciano PDU e possono diventare  Test Center Paerson Vue.

Requisiti per entrare nel programma ATP

Requisiti di Formazione:

Per poter tenere corsi per la preparazione dell’esame PMP, il docente deve:

  • Completare il Programma ATP – Train the Trainer – PMP® Exam Prep
  • Essere un PMP® attivo
  • Possedere esperienze Agile

Un ATP dovrà anche:

  • Essere un’entità legale da almeno 3 anni e superare l’esame finanziario (background and credit check)
  • Aderire alle linee guida e politiche di gestione del BRAND del PMI

Requisiti di Esperienza Cliente:

  • Must use PMI-provided course content for PMP exam prep courses
  • Be able to provide in-person and/or virtual instructor-led courses
  • Must have documented customer resolution issue process and agree to provide “guaranteed to run” classes.

Considerazioni di PMTSI

A questo punto, è lecito riflettere prima di imbarcarsi in un simile processo, oltre al costo annuale che non è affatto trascurabile. Ma, se il PMI continua, come dovrebbe essere, ad accettare  le contact hours per formazione interna o di terze parti senza il bisogno di essere ATP, probabilmente quest’ultima diventerà la soluzione prevalente.

In pratica dal 1° Luglio, PMTSI, potrà rilasciare lo stesso attestato  delle 35 contact hours, senza pre-approvazione PMI, come previsto dal PMP-Handbook.

 (vedi punto D e E a pag. 12 del PMP Handbook):

PMP-Contact Hours

Cosa è un REP?

Definizione del PMI (Project Management Institute):

An R.E.P. is an organization approved by PMI to issue  professional development units (PDUs) for its training courses. Courses offered by PMI Registered Education Providers (R.E.P.s) …. are preapproved for contact hours in fulfillment of certification eligibility requirements, as well as PDUs to fulfill the continuing certification requirements (CCR) for PMI credentials. The eligibility of contact hours/PDUs from other sources is the responsibility of certification candidates and will be determined on a case-by-case basis. The R.E.P. program has been designed to enhance the ongoing professional development of PMI’s members, those credentialed through PMI and others in the project management profession. … The program features an extensive range of organizations committed to serving the professional development needs of the industry. Organizations include commercial training providers, colleges and universities, corporations, government and state agencies, and more than 250 PMI component and communities in more than 70 countries. Over the years, the R.E.P. program has been revised and improved to ensure that those that have earned R.E.P. status are capable of providing effective training. While it is impossible for PMI to guarantee the success of every R.E.P. training activity, all organizations met the criteria at the time of their review. All R.E.P.s are reviewed every three years. ”  – (Fonte PMI: PMI.org)
