    What You NEED TO KNOW NOW about PMI Memphis COURSES

    PMI Memphis has been providing high-quality, cost-effective PMP/CAPM certification training to local project managers and project leaders for years. For 2020, the PMP exam is changing significantly. People studying under the current format should plan to take and pass the exam before June 30, 2020.

    PMP Exam Changes July 1, 2020

    Plan to study traditional project management principles as well as Agile principles. The exam will be about 50/50 between traditional and agile framework. Follow this link to see what PMI says about the exam change.

    Sample domain detail for exam change

    Also, note that our PMP/CAPM prep classes are as much as $1200 cheaper than other providers who bring class offerings to town.

    CAPM candidates can take our PMP classes. The key difference is that CAPM is useful for people who haven’t yet accrued the requisite work experience to sit for the PMP exam. This is perfect for ambitious people just finishing their 4-year degree.

    Did you know that if your company needs to book multiple students for a class, they can reach out to [email protected] or call Cath Knabb, VP of Professional Development, to work out a group discount arrangement?

    PMI Memphis will soon be collaborating with a training group to offer discounts to their Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) training. Keep an eye on the website for more information about that.

    Planned Certification Prep Dates for 2020

    • Apr 7 – Apr 30, Tue/Thur nights from 5:30 to 9:30
    • Sep 29 – Oct 22, Tue/Thur nights from 5:30 to 9:30
    • Got Questions? Contact [email protected]


    Keep an eye on our Education page. We sometimes partner with other organizations to bring other training opportunities to the Memphis area.
