Special Notes

PMI Exam Prep Study Groups are designed for PMI certification candidates who have already fulfilled their desired PMI credential's educational and experience qualifications. Study Group hours do not count towards the PMP education requirement. To learn more about PMI credentialing standards, visit the Project Management Institute.

Stepping into the study group filled me with nervous anticipation, considering my ten-year hiatus from school and my historical struggles with tests. However, the decision to become a part of this local chapter, has proven to be immensely rewarding. In this group, I've had the privilege of connecting with numerous individuals who share similar experiences to mine. The instructors, incredibly knowledgeable in their domain, have provided unwavering support and motivation. What I've found in PMI-DVC is the missing link I never realized was absent from my life, and I'm genuinely grateful to be a member. To those who might be undecided, I wholeheartedly encourage you to take that leap of faith. Rest assured, the experience will exceed your expectations.

Participated in Study Group Spring 2020

Joining the PMI-DVC study group and taking an exam prep course were the first things I did as a chapter member. I had no clue where to start with studying for my PMP and was worried that I would not know how to effectively study as I was juggling a demanding job and planning for my wedding. I never realized how many people – from the instructors to the study group members to the board members – were willing to help throughout the entire process of preparing. Not only did this enable me to pass my exam on my first attempt, but it made me excited to get more involved with the chapter. Thank you PMI-DVC for playing a critical part in my career advancement and giving me the opportunity to connect with so many great individuals!

Participated in Study Group in 2022

The PMI Delaware Valley Chapter (PMI-DVC) offered PMP Study Group Program was a crucial factor in my success in attaining the PMP certification in December 2022. The content, pedagogical approach, instructors, and peer student engagement were structured to provide vital knowledge, coaching, and support throughout the exam preparations. At the conclusion of the study group program, I felt well-prepared and ready to complete the PMP exam. Beyond the exam preparation, the content has continued to provide great value in my day-to-day project management application. I highly recommend aspiring PMP certification candidates to consider the PMI-DVC Study Group sessions.

The local chapter PMP study group gave me a timeline, resources, and a support group to cross the finish line to pass the PMP exam. I planned to take the PMP exam for many years. Due to competing priorities and life’s curveballs I kept finding an excuse to put the exam on the backburner. Once committed to the PMP study group I had the drive to schedule the exam and stick to a study plan. The presenters reviewed the breadth of material covered on the exam and provided a sounding board for questions I couldn’t find anywhere else. The group was an excellent supplement to my studies. Without the support, my road to PMP would have been much longer. I contribute the tips and resources provided by the study group as a key reason I passed the PMP exam on my first attempt.
