What you need to do

We request that you, our partner, take immediate action to remain in compliance with PMI guidelines:

  • Write out all PMI initializations in full the first time they appear on each page in your course materials and include a registration mark on the term’s first occurence.
    • In all course titles, spell out PMP credential in full: “Project Management Professional (PMP)®”
    • On the same page, spell out, “A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)”
  • Remove the PMI R.E.P. logo and the R.E.P. number from any of your marketing materials.
  • Do not issue student certificates of completion with the PMI R.E.P. logo nor the R.E.P. number.

This is important because non-R.E.P. (partners) can license courseware containing PMI Intellectual Property from an existing R.E.P. (ed2go) with a current Derivative Works License on file with the PMI Legal Department. However, the non-R.E.P. (partners) cannot advertise/promote that a particular course offered has been approved, accredited, etc. by an existing (ed2go) or former PMI R.E.P. on their website.
