  • Congratulations on your decision to join one the most active and vibrant Chapters in North America! Before you can become a PMI-SAC member, you must be a PMI member. You can add your PMI-SAC membership to your PMI membership when you first join PMI, when you renew your annual PMI membership, or by:
    1. Logging into your PMI member’s account at any time
    2. Navigating through the list of Chapters until you locate the PMI-SAC chapter
    3. Selecting Join.

If you require information on PMI’s family of professional credentials (i.e. PMP, CAPM, PgMP, PMI-SP, and PMI-RMP) or credential maintenance, visit: http://www.pmi.org/Certification.aspx. If you still have questions or need clarifications after reading each respective credential’s handbook, please email mrc@pmisac.com

You can apply to take the PMP certification exam through PMI’s website. They will assign you a testing site and provide you with all the information you need to take the test in Southern Alberta.

You do. PMI-SAC obtains approval from PMI International for events the Chapter coordinates that fall under Category 3. Members are responsible for keeping a record of the events they attend and submitting their own PDU claims with PMI International.

You need to keep a record of the events you attend during any given certification cycle in case PMI International audits your PDU claims. Many members choose to track their PDUs using a spreadsheet, but everyone must keep either electronic or paper records including a description of each event and the receipt provided to you by PMI-SAC.PMI-SAC provides receipts for all events they facilitate, including Brown Bag events.

PDUs are measured in terms of time spent in a structured learning activity and can be recorded in increments as low as .25 of an hour. You can safely assume all PMI SAC Lunch & Learn and Dinner Meetings each earn 1 PDU. If the event is long enough to warrant additional PDU credit, PMI-SAC will let you know before and during the event.

PMI International suggests you record your PDU activities as soon as possible after they occur. This way, you are less likely to miss claiming an event and, should PMI International decline a claim, you will still have time to replace it with something else before your certification cycle ends.

You can always contact PMI International Customer Care for assistance. If you are not getting any satisfaction there, please contact the PMI-SAC VP Professional Development.
