Event Description: Join our Government Contracting luncheon series on Tuesday, July 16 for "An Overview of Popular Managment Certifications Required for Government Contracts."

The Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification has arguably become the most well-recognized professional certification in the world and tops many industry lists in credentials improving earning potential.  We all know that professional certifications are a great way for individuals to demonstrate their knowledge and experience to prospective employers and help organizations improve their capabilities and competitiveness in new business opportunities.


            How can I set myself apart in a room where everyone 
            around me is a PMP®?

            What can I do if I do not yet have the experience to 
            apply for the PMP exam?

            What if I am part of a project management team, but 
            not the project manager?

            What certifications are required to win government 


In addition to the PMP® credential, the PMI® offers a family of certifications for project practitioners of all education and skill levels This presentation will provide an overview of the entire family of PMI® certifications including: the PgMP®, CAPM®, PMI-SP®, PMI-RMP®, and the new PMI-ACP®. Chris Talmont, the Manager of Course Development at Off Peak Training, will discuss the intended audience, application process, and maintenance requirements for each credential and the certification benefits to individuals and employers. The session will conclude with a question and answer session. Find out if additional credentials are right for you or your organization.

These luncheons are held at the Reston Chamber office with a boxed lunch included in your registration fee.
