    Did you know that the PMP® and CAPM® exams are changing on July 1, 2020? Are you considering sitting for one of the new exams and want to learn more before deciding? (Consider winter classes about to start in February – orientation is in January, check out the website for details.)

    Are you an industry professional and want to know what is changing to keep up your certification? (Remember - maintaining PDUs is a critical part of your professional development and so you don’t need to take the exam again.)

    Every 3 to 5 years, PMI incorporates their research into the exam content, including how the profession has progressed, the impact of emerging trends, and how responsibilities of project managers have changed. This recent round of changes is significant and focuses on the new direction of PMI with the three domains: People, Process and Business Environment.

    It’s an exciting time to be a part of PMI amidst rapid change across many industries! We take pride in preparing our members for success and keeping them apprised of trends in the profession.

    We hope you’ll join us as two of our distinguished PMI-Southwest Ohio chapter members share information about these changes and be available to answer your questions.
