Project Management program earns international approval
Okanagan College Media Release

Okanagan College has earned the designation of Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) from the Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s largest project management member association. 

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.  

Okanagan College’s project management programming is offered through its Continuing Studies division. Earning the designation means the College has met the criteria for course content, instructor qualification and instructional design. 

“The shift to project-based work we are seeing in many industries, including finance, technology, construction and health, has helped to make project management an increasingly important field of work, and we have seen strong training demand in our region,” said Dennis Silvestrone, Director of Continuing Studies and Corporate Development at Okanagan College. “Our program receiving this designation means our students are assured their education meets the highest professional standards and can be used to earn professional development units.” 

Okanagan College 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.
