We do our part by:

    - Sponsoring and providing certification training / classes
    - Developing alliances and relationships with Memphis area colleges and universities.

    The sub-pages in the "Education" section of this site provide links to our PMP Class schedule and Registration page as well as some usefull links to PMI® Global's website.

    Developing awareness of the vast array of educational tools and resources provided by the PMI® Global organization is another way we will help you and the community understand the value that PMI® brings to us all. Below are a  few examples:

    PMI Memphis Offerings:

    PMI Memphis endeavors to offer many ways for members to develop themselves professionally. We are actively working to grow our certification preparation offerings to you because PMI has a strong set of professional credentials from which to draw. When you earn a credential from PMI, it really says a lot about your work history, your professional ethic, and your willingness to work hard to earn that extra “something” that distinguishes you from the crowd.

    PMP Preparation Course

    This is our mainstay. The Project Management Professional (PMP) credential is the international standard in project management certifications. PMI Memphis has been offering a prep course for this credential for years and works diligently to help each student achieve the certification. Whether you need help with the application or you are just beginning to study for the exam, we can help.

    PMI-ACP Preparation Course

    PMI Memphis started offering the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) prep course in 2016. This credential is perceived as valuable because it covers a broad spectrum of agile methods. For the company that employs the right project methodology to fit the nature of the project, this credential is on point.

    PMI-PBA Preparation Course (Coming Soon)

    PMI Memphis is exploring ways to bring to you a course for preparing for the PMI Professional Business Analyst (PMI-PBA) exam. Like the PMP, the PMI-PBA requires a strong work history from an applicant trying to earn the credential. This explains how the PMI-PBA is gaining a reputation as signifying the holder really understands the best in BA concepts and practices. Look for announcements soon (target: Oct 2017) in our site and newsletter for how to access reasonably-priced prep options for the PMI-PBA.

    PMI Memphis Virtual Book Club

    In 2016, PMI Memphis made available the Virtual Book Club. It is managed by a 3rd party and is available through LinkedIn for an annual subscription price. Participants select and read relevant books and hold discussions via closed group LinkedIn comments. Look for announcements each August for how to sign up for the next year’s Book Club activity. This is a pretty cool way to earn up to 30 PDUs per year, 1 PDU for every hour you spend reading or participating. You decide how much to participate, and then self-report the PDUs according your level of involvement.

    Various Topical Training Opportunities

    Sometimes our members let us know they would like some training content in a particular subject matter, and sometimes some great training content lands on our doorstep. However it develops, PMI Memphis routinely makes training opportunities available to you for reasonable prices. Watch our newsletters and Event listings for these items.
