“The world is a university and everyone in it is a teacher. Make sure when you wake up in the morning, you go to school.” ―T. D. Jakes
Professional development isn’t a one-time event. It's an important aspect of managing your career, and it never ends. PMI Memphis understands this and offers multiple options to serve your trainining and education needs. For those who hold PMI credentials, remember to report your training hours consumed in the ccrs.pmi.org site (using your pmi.org login) to receive Professional Development Units (PDUs) toward renewing your certifications. PDUs can be earned for all forms of learning. Some PDUs can also be earned by performing your project management-related job or volunteering or creating content for the project management community.
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.
