Project Management Certificate

PMI Registered Education Provider

Texas Executive Education is an official Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI), the world's largest project management member association. R.E.P.s are institutions that have been approved by PMI to help project managers maintain their professional certifications, such as the Project Management Professional (PMP) and Program Management Professional (PgMP) credentials.

We Meet the Highest Quality Standards
While there are a number of sources for project management training, we are unique in that our R.E.P. status means both the technical content of our courses and the quality of our instruction have met PMI’s rigorous quality standards.

This ensures that the instruction you receive at Texas Executive Education always reflects the latest advances in project management practice, is fully aligned with PMI global standards and provides practical value that can be applied within your workplace.

How to close major projects and programs

Our state-of-the art curriculum is built upon an integrated, scalable stage-gate approach to project management. This decision-driven framework requires the manager to address the changing nature of the relevant business questions as the project progresses through each phase. The curriculum goes well beyond the traditional professional exam preparation courses and delves into the leading-edge research of the faculty members, as well as best practices garnered from a variety of industries.
