    Professional Development

    Value of Classes from PMI Memphis

    PMI Memphis strives to provide value to its members and other local professionals by offering lower cost certification training options. We have a deep bench of PMP-certified members who have passion and talent for sharing their knowledge to students. That allows us to offer PMP/CAPM prep classes as much as $1200 cheaper than other providers who bring class offerings to town.

    We would like to build the same bench of instructors in the areas of Agile Practice and Risk Management by first raising the count of members having the certifications. Therefore, we are collaborating with Velociteach to bring these instructor-led prep classes to Memphis at prices beating other options out there by as much as $700. If you know any in your company who would benefit with Agile or Risk Management certifications, have them give our classes a look. Registration will soon close.

    Be a helpful member: Share the value by sharing the Info/Registration links for the three classes listed below on your LinkedIn, Facebook, or other social media accounts.

    Learn about the PMI-ACP and PMI-RMP Certifications

    Like the PMP certification, these two hold a great deal of value because of the work experience required to apply for the exams. One can get other certifications that do not have experience requirements. Which is better? A certificate backed up by qualifying, related experience or one that is not?

    More about these valuable certifications:

     

    Planned Certification Prep Dates

    Due to a conflict with the training provider, we have shifted the dates of the PMI-ACP and PMI-RMP classes to the week of Oct 22. The next PMP/CAPM series is scheduled as well. See the links to learn about student materials provided for each class:
