Professional Development Events

The Project Management Institute Southern Alberta Chapter (PMI-SAC) offers both regular seminars in project management and a regular PMP® / CAPM® Exam Preparation Workshop. As a leading organization in the Southern Alberta project management community for over 30 years, PMI-SAC prides itself on providing the highest quality training and professional development to all members of the community.

The Professional Development portfolio focuses on enabling opportunities for the local project management community to acquire the tools to better execute and manage initiatives within a project organization. Opportunities can be in the form of:

  • Chapter membership delivered events
  • Workshops and seminars provided by professional instructors
  • Access to regional, national or international events, seminars, congresses, and workshops.

The Board of Directors of PMI-SAC places a high priority on providing venues for overall professional development in the project management community. Our annual Professional Development Conference (PDC) is a popular and recognized success story for the chapter. The Board, and the VP Professional Development in particular, focuses on providing many professional development activities, and delivering quality instruction for learning needs beyond certification, as well as venues and events to earn PDUs in maintaining certification.

Please contact the VP Professional Development to enquire regarding Professional Development opportunities.
