UCSB Extension Approved to Provide Project Management Training

Extended Learning Services Approved by Project Management Institute as Registered Education Provider, Effective Immediately

PMI R.E.P.s are educational organizations that have demonstrated that they are capable of providing world-class effective project management training. Through PMI’s rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification, and instructional design, R.E.P.s provide the project management training necessary to earn and to maintain Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)® and other PMI professional credentials.


Project management skills are a critical tool for almost any career and industry. UCSB Extension’s PMI-approved courses enable the student to acquire the skills needed to keep projects on task, on time and on budget.

“The discipline of project management enjoys increasing importance in recent years,” said UCSB Extension instructor Paul Valenzuela. “UCSB Extension’s Project Management certificate program provides the foundation in the vital aspects of the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) certification programs such as Project Management Professional (PMP) and Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM).”

Currently, there are over 1,400 R.E.P.s in more than 70 countries. These organizations include commercial training providers that design complete educational systems, academic institutions, internal training offices at corporations and government agencies.
