PMI Atlanta strives to provide our members with many tools to grow professionally and further their careers. Our programs support those seeking and maintaining the PMP, PgMP, PMI-RMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-BA, PMI-SP, PfMP, and CAPM.

Certification Courses

We have partnered with a wide range of vendors to provide in-person and online courses intended for candidates in the final stages of exam preparation. Courses are a series of review sessions in which comprehensive matierals are reviewed at a rapid pace. This allows the candidate to identify areas which require further preparation. Courses typically provide 35 hours of instructor-led training and is therefore eligible to be counted as 35 contact hours as required by PMI to qualify for the exam. Courses are posted throughout the year on our Events Calendar.

Continuing Education Courses

Are you a certified veteran of project management? Our in-person and online courses provide advanced and specialized courses for your continuing PDU requirements. Courses are posted throughout the year on our Events Calendar.

Mentoring

Through the mentorship program, we facilitate mentor/mentee relationships to provide experience to the newly certified and an opportunity for our certified members to receive PDUs for volunteering their time. Our mentorship team publishes calls for mentors and mentees several times a year. If you have any questions about the mentoring program, please email us.

Study Groups

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!

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 free benefit.

Why be in a PMP Study Group?

  • Networking with other project managers
  • Opportunity to discuss material to uncover areas of confusion, gain new insights, and aid in memorization
  • Opportunity to compare notes with fellow students to clarify and fill in gaps
  • Discover areas where more work/help is needed before exam day
  • Learn from seeing others? Learn study habits, approaches, and perspectives
  • Easier to commit more time to course work when working with a group. Note the groups are interactive.
  • Support others - help each other
  • Teaching/explaining something to someone else can help you master it yourself
  • Further develop your own interpersonal skills
  • Enhance your motivation through encouragement and mutual support

Our study groups provide support for those testing for a certification. We hold several study groups throughout the year. If you are interested in mentoring a study group, please email us.

Professional Development Units

For the credentialed PMP, continued education is critical for success. At PMI, we adhere to the global PMI standards of continued and reported learning, the Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program.

Participation in professional development activities earns the PMP professional development units (PDUs) and maintains credentialing. This ongoing commitment to continued education ensures that companies hiring a PMP are hiring the most educated and up-to-date professionals in the industry.

For more information about PDUs and the CCR program, please login with your PMI.ORG credentials and either click CCRS from the Home Page --> PMI Member LOGIN (top left side panel) OR click here to record your PDU.
