    PMI Memphis is happy to help you develop your employees. Depending on chapter membership and timing, registration for our PMP/CAPM classes costs $745-$895. Students are equipped with fantastic training and educational tools designed to help them pass either the CAPM or PMP, whichever their work experience merits.

    Registration is still open for the July 16 and October 2019 classes. Each series lasts 4 weeks with classes held Tue/Thur evenings at 5:30. PMI Memphis will do everything possible to help your certification candidate prepare for passing!

    If training budget is exhausted for the current year, plan to budget for same classes to be provided at least 3 times next year. Price changes have been slight over time. If you want to arrange for multiple students or have custom needs, reach out to [email protected] to make arrangements.
