About our Study Groups

Our Study Groups program provides an effective and collaborative way of preparing you for your next career move to obtain your PMI credentials. It offers structure and motivation, great alternatives to studying on your own.

We only offer groups in preparation for your PMP certification at this time. Stay tuned for more offerings.

About our PMP Study Group

We schedule three PMP study cycles per year, in spring, summer and fall. See the schedule at the bottom of this page for more information

This service is available to all PMINYC members at a cost of $350 per member. It includes the following:

  • Study material and over 400 sample exam questions based on an accredited online course (6-months of access to the Deep Dive Program from The Versatile Company).
  • Facilitation based on an 11-week cycle to ensure you are on top of your study schedule.
  • Guidance and mentoring throughout the certification process.

This Study Group process provides 35 contact hours to satisfy the PM Education requirements to complete your PMP application.

How can I participate in a Study Group?

  • Be a member of the New York City Chapter, in good standing. It takes two easy steps to register. Click here.
  • Be willing to meet in person (post COVID) on a weekly basis and actively participate in the group. 
  • Commit yourself to complete your application and schedule your exam before the end of the cycle.

Success Stories

The PMINYC study group has been a great experience for our members. Here are some comments from past 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 a 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 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."
