Everything You Want to Know About PMI!

Today we have a guest post from Sylvie Edwards (a fellow teacher at my college), who has kindly contributed a presentation deck she put together entitled “Everything You Want to Know About PMI”. Here, Sylvie covers off the following:

  • An overview of the PMI
  • The benefits of PMI membership
  • Certification options
  • An in-depth look at the PMP
  • How to maintain certifications (it’s more than just PDUs)
  • The importance of volunteering

Sylvie has 25 years of project management experience and is the owner of a successful business consulting and training practice. She has a passion for enabling process improvement, effective risk management and PMO implementation that translates into successful engagements and effective project delivery.

Thanks, Sylvie!

I’m a professor of project management at the college where I work. My students continually amaze me with their insights, passion and all-around awesomeness. I figure they deserve access to more answers than I can give them by myself. This site is for them.
