PMI Central Alabama Chapter

News

PMI is committed to the safety and well-being of our global community, which is why we have a designated Crisis Task Force that is continuously monitoring the situation arising from coronavirus (COVID-19) daily.

We are taking additional steps to make this time easier for our community.  As a result, we have decided to extend access to the current PMP exam until December 31, 2020, and postpone the launch of the new exam until January 2, 2021.This postponement will provide candidates with additional time and access to training resources to help them prepare and sit for the exam confidently.

Please bookmark this page, and check back for any updates regarding the exam change.

If you have already scheduled your exam, or plan to do so in the near future, please consult our COVID-19 page for the latest updates and guidance. If you have additional questions or need assistance, please contact Customer Care

The March 17 Chapter Meeting is Cancelled. Due to the effects of COVID-19, the PMI Central Alabama Chapter has made a decision to CANCEL THE MARCH 2020 CHAPTER MEETING. Because of CDC recommendations related to public gatherings due to the spread of COVID-19 PMICAC feels it is in the best interest of our members to cancel the chapter meeting.

As things progress through March, we will reassess next month for the April 2020 chapter meeting. Thank you for your understanding!

If you have any questions, please contact Randy Johns, MBA, PMP.
