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.
Vendor Partnership with Velociteach
PMI Memphis has purchased PMP prep student kits from Velociteach for years. They are a registered education provider and offer many fine products across for those interested in certifications or maintaining PDUs.

PMI-ACP Preparation Course (Coming Soon)
PMI Memphis piloted 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.
