Why choose a PMI Authorized Training Partner (ATP) for your training

With the Authorized Training Partner (ATP) program, the Project Management Institute (PMI) ensures that your training content and instructors align with industry standards and credential testing. Whether you are looking for a Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam prep training or disciplined agile training for your team or yourself, the ATP program ensures quality and effectiveness.

The exclusive access to turn-key licensed content including videos, quizzes, and knowledge checks enables an ATP to increase your chances of success. The live (online) seminars take place under the guidance of PMI-approved instructors who have gone through the sophisticated 'Train the Trainer Program' by the PMI.

Lastly, education provided by non-ATPs is not guaranteed to be accepted as qualifying contact hours for a PMP® exam application.

next level consulting has been officially confirmed as a premier Authorized Training Partner (ATP).

Pal Dosanj, Managing Director of next level consulting North America, commented, "We are truly thrilled to announce that next level consulting is one of the first companies to comply with the PMI demand and has achieved an ATP status. We have been providing very successful trainings to our customers as PMI REP (Registered Education Provider). Now, we will continue our long-term partnership as an ATP to prepare candidates to acquire an in-depth understanding of the framework, and practical project management skills to get certified.”

What is the ATP Accreditation?

The PMI’s Registered Education Provider (REP) program is being replaced by the Authorized Training Partner (ATP) program. The new program is the result of global market research and customer data indicating the need for not only content to more reliably be aligned with PMI testing, but for there to be higher consistently across instructors of PMI exam testing prep.
