Aptara Builds Custom eLearning Solution for PMI Certification of Project Managers Worldwide

FALLS CHURCH, VA--(Marketwire - October 29, 2009) - Aptara, Inc., a global leader in eLearning and custom content development solutions, announced that it has developed a custom eLearning solution for Project Management Institute (PMI), the world's premier project management organization and certification body, with over 500,000 members and certificate holders. The 15-hour, self-paced course titled "Project Movie: A Practical Application of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) -- Fourth Edition" helps professionals prepare for PMI's Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) accreditation.

The PMBOK® Guide is the definitive compendium of knowledge for the Project Management profession. Aptara was approached by PMI to develop an interactive learning companion for the Guide's newly released fourth edition. The successful completion of this multi-media course assists in preparation for CAPM, as well as Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification. Featuring 12 separate modules, the self-paced, dynamic course includes simulations, scenarios, and built-in assessments at the conclusion of each module.

"It's an honor to lend our creative skills to developing advanced e-coursework for such a prestigious organization and project," said Dev Ganesan, Aptara's president and CEO. "The PMBOK® Guide is the authoritative source for the Project Management profession. We're pleased to help PMI meet their members' needs on more familiar ground by offering convenient, web-based PMBOK® Guide training. Using new-media for interactive scenarios, our creative learning team has provided PMI members the immediate access and feedback that they're accustomed to from other daily forms of digital communication. But these enhanced learning techniques are not just high-tech -- they're effective and affordable."
