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

We have 3 cycles planned for 2017 each consisting of 12 weeks. Reach out to the Program Manager for details.

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

Success stories

"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!"
