NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Global training company International Institute for Learning, Inc. (IIL) has released The Project Management Certificate Program: The Kerzner Approach® to Project Management Excellence, a self-paced, interactive HD video training program intended for anyone preparing, or planning to prepare for the Project Management Institute's Project Management Professional (PMP) examination.
IIL's first Project Management Certificate Program was introduced in 1993 and was developed by Dr. Harold Kerzner, IIL Senior Executive Director of Project Management. This release is the next generation of the flagship program and is facilitated by J. LeRoy Ward (PMP, PgMP, PfMP, CSM), a subject matter expert, industry spokesperson and thought leader in project, program, and portfolio management.
Ward coaches participants through the Project Management Framework, the 10 Knowledge Areas in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)—Fifth Edition, and PMP Exam Prep Tips and Strategies, testing their retention along the way. Participants also have the opportunity to join discussions with Ward in a LinkedIn community and study group exclusive to the program.
"This is the only program in the marketplace that helps prepare project professionals to pass the PMP certification exam while at the same time helping them to become better project managers," said J. LeRoy Ward. "I sure wish I had had this when I was studying for the exam."
The PMP credential was developed to recognize a project manager's demonstrated competence in leading and directing project teams. According to the PMI Project Management Salary Survey–Eighth Edition, certification positively impacts project manager salaries and increases marketability to employers.
"The demand for PMPs and the number of credential holders is growing dramatically throughout the world every year," said E. LaVerne Johnson, IIL Founder, President and CEO. "We know that our program will revolutionize the way project managers prepare for the PMP exam, and even more importantly, will help all organizations to increase their project management competency levels."
For every on-demand Project Management Certificate Program sold, IIL will donate 2% of the purchase price to a pre-selected charity – with the first contribution going to the Whole Kids Foundation.
