» PPI celebrates 25 yearsJoin us in celebration of 25 years of service by PPI to the systems engineering community. For PPI, founded in 1992 by Robert Halligan, 2017 is our Silver Anniversary. Over the 25 years, we have grown from three people to an international company with employees in Australia, Brazil, China, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. We have delivered project-related training or consulting in 38 different countries, to delegates working in almost every imaginable sector. We have a wholly-owned subsidiary company in the United States (PPI-USA), and another wholly-owned subsidiary Certification Training International (CTI). CTI delivers mainly CSEP training. Our training on systems engineering and its various facets has been delivered so far to over 13,500 professionals worldwide, presently at the rate of over 1150 people a year (5-day courses). To this can be added very many shorter courses. Year 2017 will be a year of celebration, with planned complimentary events in South Africa, Europe, the United States, Australia and Brazil. We hope that you can celebrate with us - you will be warmly welcomed. Watch this home page for details.
