This workshop is worth 16 PDUs.

Certification Classes

Experienced project leaders ready to become certified Project Management Professionals (PMP), and those looking to establish credibility in the application of project management processes as a Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), will both benefit from this course as they prepare for the Project Management Institute (PMI) certification examination.

This April PMI Portland Chapter is providing two options to better serve your exam prep needs:

April 9 - 12, 2018

This 4-day boot camp presented by industry-leading project management expert and PMI Registered Education Provider Steve Norton, PMP, will prepare you to take the PMP or CAPM exam in a compressed time-frame.

Saturdays, April 21 - June 2, 2018

This 7-week exam prep class spreads the learning out to allow processing at a slower pace. It is taught by PMI Portland's team of PMP certified instructors, who are experienced project managers from a variety of industries.
