About our Study Groups

Are you preparing to get your PMP, PgMP or CAPM? 
Do you want to prepare with a group of highly motivated fellow PMINYC members?   PMINYC's Study Groups may be just for you!

We have three study cycles, (Spring, Summer and Fall), planned for 2018. See below for dates. 

PMINYC's PMP Study Groups provides a flexible, collaborative and low-cost alternative to commercial prep courses.  The group offers structure and motivation - a great alternative to studying on your own. This service is free for PMINYC members, but any materials needed will be at your expense.

How can I participate in a Study Group?

  • Be a member in good standing of the NYC chapter (two easy steps) Click here

  • Complete the application through the pmi.org website. 

  • Be willing to meet in person on a weekly basis. 

  • Be willing to participate actively in the group. 

  • Be willing to schedule your exam 30 days after the study group ends.

Success Stories

The PMINYC study group has been a great experience for our members. Here are some comments from our first cycle participants:

"I passed! In no small part thanks to our facilitator and the rest of my study group."

"The study group really helped me stay motivated. I knew I had to prepare for our meeting each week if only so I didn't let the group down. Plus it was fun to meet new people and share project management war stories. Instead of feeling all alone, I was part of a community with a common goal - pass the darn test. Plus it was fun!"

"Assigning each member as PM was an excellent decision and should continue to be a requirement."

"Content in Dropbox exceeded all expectations. Clearly, a lot of thought and hard work went into assembling materials. It made studying much easier and organized to have that resource."

"Everyone had something to offer concerning study materials."

"The PMP materials were an essential part of the studying process. It was also helpful to have other resources (like Rita) and a variety of study apps as well."

"Excellent group of people. Everyone with different work experience and different experience with PMP and taking the PMP. All willing to help each other."

"Reviewing key points/confusing topics and going over confusing/wrong test questions."

"Working with other professionals to understand PMP gaps."
