Lantern Three Approved as Registered Education Provider by Project Management Institute
San Diego, CA, USA – Octoboer 01, 2015 – Lantern Three announced today 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.). 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 in training and maintenance, especially since median salaries for the profession now exceed $100,000. Through its PMOLeader initiative, Lantern Three aims to reduce the alarmingly high failure rate of projects over $1 million by developing the leadership skills of project managers (PMs). In PMOLeader’s research, PMs with leadership skills are highly correlated to successful projects, and PMs who lack leadership skills are highly correlated to projects who are late, over budget, or do not deliver the promised scope.
“In a recent CIO Magazine ranking of the top 10 project management certifications, the first two spots belong to the Project Management Institute”, said John Eisenschmidt, a Managing Member of Lantern Three. “As a PMI-certified PMP for nearly 10 years, I have seen projects deliver much greater value with a credentialed PM, but have even greater outcomes with PMs who have credentials and leadership skills. With our PM Leadership Development Program (PMLDP), we are excited to offer critical skill development to those already working to deliver projects on time and on budget.”
Lantern Three 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.
