The PMP examination is changing December 16, 2019. If you’re currently pursuing the PMP, you’ll want to make sure you are on track to take the exam before December 16.
The PMBOK Guide, Sixth Edition is not changing and the exam will continue to utilize the PMBOK Guide as one of the key sources for the exam content. There’s still time to get this done with the help of PMI-HVC. The chapter is offering two PMP Certification courses this fall (see below). Each course will meet for 5 Saturdays.
9/21/19 to 10/19/19 at Washtenaw Community College
10/26/19 to 11/23/19 at Eastern Michigan University
Volunteering is a great way to get to know new people, network, take on new challenges, further develop your leadership skills, and to know you’ve help your chapter get better.
