The PMP Exam Preparation course, designed to prepare experienced project management practicioners for PMI's PMP certification exam, was originally Initiated by the Chapter with classes held a couple of times per year at Cleary College located across the street from the Holiday Inn where our chapter meetings are held. While the chapter used the convenient Cleary location, there was no sort of partnership with Cleary College. The course was managed and facilitated entirely by chapter volunteers. The complexity of mounting the class multiple times per year spoke to the need of forming a strategic partnership with an established learning institution. That need was met when the chapter formed a partnership with Eastern Michigan University (EMU) at its Livonia satellite location.

The EMU-HVC partnership has been very successful over the years, but there was still a geographic need for a second training facility in the chapter's hometown, the greater Ann Arbor area. So about a year ago, when a WCC representative approached some Board members after a chapter meeting with the idea of WCC partnering with the chapter to conduct PMP Prep courses at WCC, the chapters course is set. For July 9th of this year, the third PMP Prep course of WCC-HVC partnership will kick off.  Kimberly Claxton-Womba, Training Director under Dan Kulkarni, VP of Training, shepherded the course over five consecuetive Saturdays finishing on Feburary 11th, 2017. Instrumental in the success of the course will be the following volunteer chapter instructors:

Ann Baird
Bryan Alfonso
Dan Kulkarni
Irfan Mallick
Jan Sockness
Jerry Weyand
Keely Kaleski
Lisa Ingall
Liz Lund
Mira Collins
Paulette Alloa
Rick Bollinger
Steve Holden
Vic Divecha
