Straight Talk With Sunil

In a new video series called “Straight Talk With Sunil,” we’ll explore topics that are timely and relevant to PMI and our various stakeholders in a very simple 1:1 or 1:2 format. No spin—just straightforward discussion.

Create a Chapter-Mentoring Program – New Resource

PMI chapters have the ability to provide valuable knowledge and networking to their members through mentoring. The PMI Chapter-Mentoring Program Toolkit includes examples from chapters that have a successful program in place. Learn from your chapter leader peers! Find it in the Marketing Portal.

This will provide more test locations, online proctoring for PMI-ACP® and CAPM® exams and better access for U.S. military members. Testing with Pearson VUE will begin 1 July 2019.
