Guerrilla Project Management is an Authorized Training Partner (ATP). Instructors are active practitioners using agile, as well as being trainers. PMI accelerates in the agile direction in 2021 with the PMP training and certification. Agile and project management skills are required from students and instructors. PMI requires instructors to hold the credential they teach as well as have agile experience. PMI has standardized the PMP training. This sets a baseline competency for all ATP instructors. While all instructor-led training will have similarities, Guerrilla Project Management offers practitioner-trainers and unique tools and insight surpassing the PMI baseline for an ATP.
PMI ATP program background
In 2021, PMI replaced the Registered Education Provider (REP) with the Authorized Training Partner (ATP). As part of this significant change, PMI will be the only official PMP on-demand course provider; no ATP can provide on-demand training eligible for the 35 contact hours.
ATP providers can only teach the official training material provided by PMI. A PMI authorized trainer must carry out the teaching with an ATP instructor badge in a live virtual (or in-class) setting. ATP also have access to other privileged content.
At this time, it may be possible to earn the 35 PDU to apply for the PMP from various non-ATP sources. Guerrilla Project Management strongly suggests studying with an ATP. The ATP Program assures quality instruction and use of a curriculum curated by PMI with the best interests of candidates as the driving force. PMI has reserved the right to limit the 35 continuing education hours to PMI curriculum in the future.

Who Should Take This Course?
Considerations PMI Delivered On-Demand Course for PMP
On-Demand, In-Person, or Live-Virtual training is a personal choice that depends on you!
PMI also offers self-directed on-demand training to prepare for the PMP exam providing 35 contact hours. If suited to this learning modality the student may also want to invest in additional support materials as described in this Course Package: books, simulated exams, etc. PMI’s publishes a list of books helpful to self-study. The PMI on-demand course will cost about $699 for member and $799 for non-members, please check the PMI site. The total cost including the on-demand course and nominal study materials may be around $1,000.
Guerrilla Project Management would not discourage students from taking the On-Demand Course if it is the fit. Taking this Bootcamp and the PMI self-directed on-demand course together is also a fine option. The Bootcamp is intended as a stand-alone offering. However, combining the On-Demand Course and Bootcamp modalities may be effective as well.
With a guide or not, the PMP is a lot of work and you should choose carefully. Whether you choose self-directed on-demand, another ATP, or Guerrilla Project Management please know we are rooting for you! The world needs more great project managers.
