WV/OV Chapter is pleased to announce a virtual examination preparation class for the Program Management Professional (PgMP) certification, to be conducted via web-based teleconference over 4 nights in January (22-23, 29-30), 2 hours per night (6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT). The cost for this first-ever (in West Virginia) exam prep class is a nominal amount of $100. (Note that this fee does not include study materials; see below for separate ordering details.)
PMI's description of the PgMP certification (found at https://www.pmi.org/certifications/types/program-management-pgmp) asserts that the certification "...is a visible sign of your advanced experience and skill and gives you a distinct advantage in employment and promotion."
The 8 hours of instruction to be provided will qualify for up to 8 PDU's of credit in the Technical Project Management talent triangle area.
