MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., October 23 /CNW/ - PRICE Systems, L.L.C., the world
leader in cost estimating and analysis solutions, today announced that it
achieved Global Registered Education Provider (REP) approval status from the
Project Management Institute (PMI) to offer training courses to certified
project management professionals (PMPs) enrolled in PMI's Continuing
Certification Requirements (CCR) program. The CCR program requires PMPs to
earn credits each year in order to retain their PMI certification levels.
PRICE Systems designed its training courses to enable PMPs to quickly and
accurately assess schedule, cost, and risk while considering all available
alternatives, which improves outlooks for complex, high-visibility programs
and businesses seeking competitive differentiation.
To achieve PMI certification, PMI evaluated PRICE Systems' training
courses to validate the effectiveness of the hands-on, expert instruction
PRICE Systems provides and to ensure that it meets PMI's high standards. Each
course integrates lectures and exercises, featuring 50 percent hands-on
training time. Instructors use real-world problems to challenge trainees and
reinforce important concepts.
Annual PMI CCR certification requires PMPs to earn 60 PDU credits to
retain certification. PMI evaluated and approved two of PRICE Systems'
training courses for professional development unit (PDU) credits: "PRICE
Hardware Model (PRICE H) - Estimating and Project Control" and "True S -
Software Project Planning and Control." Additional course details follow:
-- PRICE H: This five day course provides an overview and instruction in
the use of parametric cost estimating methodology and allows PMPs to earn 40

schedule, and cost of projects," said PRICE Systems President Anthony DeMarco.
