Want to teach Project Management

I have taught for my companies in the past and it is not part of my new job responsibilities. I am very passionate about the topic and loved training people. I have a Bachelors, PMP and experience but no other additional certifications - any suggestions on where to go from here?

Start tutoring PM in University.

Maybe you can work with a training company, like Learning Tree. Their trainers are usually professionals in the field. Or create online training material for companies like Udemy.

Jennifer, in my humble opinion, if you work as Business Solution Analyst and bachelors and you earn a PMP teach Business Analysis instead of Project Mangement. Inside Project Mangement is nothing new to invent (if you take a look to PMBOK GUide versions from year 2000 up to date you will understand why). In the field of Business Analysis there is a world to discover and put in practice. And I am not talking about tools and techniques. I am talking about all related to systemic thinking.

Jennifer -

This echoes my recent career changes - I made the jump from teaching as a component of my previous role to teaching as a full-time role. While I do intend to pursue a diploma in Adult Education at some point, I've no formal education in the field, but made up for that with lots of experience, high visiblity in the online PM community and high energy & passion for teaching.

It might be easier for you to approach a boutique training company than a university or college as the lack of formal teaching credentials will be less of a constraint. However, you should check that the boutique firm has enough work to keep you busy & financially solvent!

Jennifer, The best thing is to check with your local chapter. I am sure they have lots of opportunities where you can start training as a volunteer and it might open new doors for you. Good Luck !

An add-on question to all the respondents: Are there any universities or training institutes that you can recommend approaching?

REPs are, of course, one avenue and we can shortlist such organisations from the PMI site -- but what would your personal experience recommend as good jumping-off points?

Thanks.

I have taken several classes from https://www.learningtree.com/ . These classes are taught by professionals. I am sure they have a process for helping new trainers. This is an international company but I am not sure exactly if they have offices in your area.
This is one idea.
I would suggest thinking about training companies that are in your area. Contact them and find out if they pull instructors from businesses and how they support their new instructors.
