Our Story

Project Management Training Institute (PMTI) was born out of frustration of lack of effective training solutions in the project management industry and to help aspiring project managers advance their careers without breaking the bank.

In 2003, PMTI's Founder and CEO, Yad Senapathy, was transitioning into a new role within his company, but the positions he most desired required or highly preferred a PMP credential. Around the same time, his life & business partner Shobha was asked to get the PMP certification by her employer, so they both set out to earn their PMP designation.

As they searched for a solution that fit their needs, that of a working professional with a family at home, their search turned up fruitless. There were books & guides that outlined the process, but most solutions were studying regimens that took 6 or more months to complete. The alternative was to dish out $3,000 or more on expensive training programs!

Yad had been preparing students for standardized exams since his college years, and Yad & Shobha both had an extensive background in research. The opportunity presented itself.

Yad & Shobha were frustrated with the pain-staking processes and long-term timelines to completion of existing programs. They set out to create a solution that suited the working professional, a time-efficient, guaranteed to work solution to achieving PMP accreditation.

Using adult learning techniques improved from standardized test prep strategies and a thorough dive into the PMBOK® Guide materials, the Project Management Training Institute (PMTI) was created and pioneered the 4-day PMP Exam Prep Boot Camp format.

For the past 18 years, Yad & Shobha with an expert team of instructors and course authors have refined and perfected their face-to-face and live online PMP certification training, even creating their own proprietary books and training materials to ensure effective communication of exam materials, and helped over 80,000 professionals achieve PMP certification. 99% of PMTI students pass their PMP Exam, and 100% of those few that don't get a full refund. We guarantee it. Yad Senapathy, CEO of PMTI and a notable project management influencer not only contributed extensively to the PMBOK® Guide 5th and 7th editions, but also became an exclusive contributor to Forbes on various topics in project management. We invite you to join the accomplished project managers and successful companies that have trusted PMTI for their training towards PMP certification, CAPM certification, PMI-ACP certification, agile, scrum, PM fundamentals, Disciplined Agile, and PMTI 8-day PM workshops.
