Fall 2020 PMINAC Study Group

2020 Aug banner 

Are you already an experienced project management employee or are you interested in obtaining a career in project management? Have you thought about getting PMP® / CAPM® certified?

If so, The Project Management Institute Northern Alberta Chapter (PMINAC) can help you with your preparation to obtain these certifications that will help advance your career!

PMINAC sponsors a study group with a planned commencement date of September 15 2020. Come join the study group by signing up!

What is the PMINAC Study Group?

Open to all members* of the PMINAC Chapter, the PMINAC Study Group hosts 9-week study groups to help students prepare for the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) and Project Management Professional (PMP) exam. The Study Group is hosted and facilitated by PMINAC Volunteers who have already obtained their PMP certifications and are experienced in the discipline of project management.

How does it work?

Through the 9 weeks of study, PMINAC volunteer facilitators will provide overview presentations for each of the chapters in the PMBOK® - Sixth Edition to relay the foundation and basics to the students. Along the way, the facilitators will provide tips and tricks for the exam prep and highlight key learning areas. The tables are then turned during each session for the students to present the chapter to the class. Additionally, each session will have an exam at the beginning of the class where students test their knowledge and a 150-question final exam on the last day as final preparation.

Through our previous offerings we have found that after the 12 weeks the participants are in the best position to challenge (and pass) the PMP® / CAPM® exam, demonstrated with our high success rate.


This study group is NOT an in-class training by instructors, but a highly interactive study group facilitated by PMINAC experienced volunteers and study group participants. The sessions are designed to assist in your study preparation to obtain your PMP® or CAPM®. You will be required to study all chapters of the PMBOK® - Sixth Edition over the 9 sessions and write the final exam.


100$ for the cost of study material including exam simulator
