Wow, this helps us in our decision. At Boeing we only do internal training and have been a REP for access to graphics and to make it easier for our PMPs to claim PDUs. If they don't provide some relief for our situation, I'm afraid we won't be able to offer an exam prep next year due to the new exam content being unknown.
I also developed and teach a PMP Exam Prep for a local college who is a REP. I don't see them continuing with this cost structure. I may continue with them but I'll need to create new content and make our class offering outside of PMIs Training Partnership.
This is a bad direction for PMI.
Interesting your question.
Thanks for sharing
On October 6th, I asked this question here in the community:
The changes were very large (in terms of model, requirements and costs)
How many R.E.P.'s in the world will PMI lose?
The R.E.P.'s have contributed a lot (and the volunteers who founded the chapters) to make PMI what it is today
When an beardless (person who doesn't know anything about training and the business of training) sits with an open excel sheet and doing simulations ... that's what happens
The full details are outlined here: https://www.pmi.org/rep-program-resources/...raining-partner
Lots of changes to the existing REP program and working for a REP in Canada, we are at a significant financial disadvantage given the current exchange rate difference between U.S. and Canadian dollars.
What is really unfortunate is that you have to pay the fee even if you don't intend to deliver PMP Prep training - will there be sufficient business generated by the ATP branding to justify the significant increase over the REP costs for the current program?
I'm surprised by the difference in pricing from Africa to Asia to America, almost one third, two-third, and full.
If covering more than one continent an organization should book everything from the lowest cost region.
My take is that US PMPs and REPs will decrease to 2000 levels because PMI has a huge turnover and need to pump new members and PMPs to stay sustainable.
So, the fees for Asia and Africa makes sense because that's were the focus will be to get new members & PMPs.
I've read opinions that China will move to projectize lots of workforce, and with centrally-managed economy they can pull the stint to certify 1000's at once. PLUS, the remote (gig economy) project management taking place all around - the result will be global increase in PMPs, with lower demand for onsite in US.
will it still be possible for students to claim 35 contact hours from non REP (non ATP ) ?
PMI mentioned that ATPs will not be allowed to do on demand self paced , as PMI has an offering themselves.....will non ATP (non REP) be allowed to offer self paced on demand ...and students can claim PDUs
