The Project Management Institute (PMI) has granted Procept Associates Ltd. status as a PMI Authorized Training Partner (ATP). The ATP program replaces PMI's older Registered Education Provider (REP) program, under which Procept was the first REP in Canada and one of the first REPs worldwide (with "global charter" status).
PMI has designed the new program to increase the quality of the educational offerings provided by its partners. PMI describes the program saying "PMI ATP status is awarded to only established, high-quality, financially-sound project management education providers who are aligned to PMI core values, have mature business practices and offer courses aligned to the PMI Talent Triangle®. Training organizations that carry the PMI ATP Program Logo are a reflection of PMI and thus must undergo an extensive evaluation of their companies in order to be admitted to the Program." Acknowledging that Procept meets these high standards by granting it ATP status, PMI continues its recognition of Procept's excellence, which started back in 1999 with the founding of the former REP program.
