Studying for the PMP exam can be a daunting task, one that is not easily undertaken as a solo participant. By studying with others, PMP candidates can help each other prepare more thoroughly and efficiently. The hard part is finding others to study with. The PMP Study Group Program simplifies this process for you and helps make connections between PMP candidates who take seriously the task of preparing for the exam.

The PMP Study Group Program is free of charge and provides chapter members an opportunity to work with other chapter members to enhance their ability to pass the PMP exam. A PMP mentor will be assigned to each study group to give advice on how the test is administered, how to study, what materials to use, and facilitate the planning and logistics for the group. Take advantage of this free offer from the Professional Growth Committee of PMI Atlanta to help you pass the PMP exam on your first try!

We are always looking for a strong mentor for our study groups. If you are interested in hosting, please email us.

Notes: The PMP Study Groups are designed for PMP candidates who already have fulfilled the educational and experience qualifications of the PMP credential. The typical study process is designed to take place over a 12-week period. A PMP study group does not qualify as "contact hours" for the PMP educational requirement. This program is offered only to members of PMI Atlanta as a member benefit.

Never regard study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later work belongs.
