The CCR programchanged in December 2015, so you’ll want to understand what you’ll need to do to maintain your PMI certification.

To put CCR into perspective, Beth Ouellette will provide us with an overview of the PMI suite of credentials and will discuss how they are developed and maintained with emphasis on what is in the pipeline.  Those of you who attended our October 2014 meeting know that she has a “behind-the-scenes” perspective of the credential development process based on her involvement with the development of the PMI Professional in Business Analysis certification (PMI-PBA ®).

The session will discuss the details of the Continuing Certification Requirements including the reasoning behind the recent updates, and of course, the revised rules.

In addition, Beth will provide an update on the PMI certification for Professional in Business Analysis, the Practice Guide for Requirements Management, and the Business Analysis Practice Guide.  You’ll especially want to join us if you’re considering the PMI-PBA ®.

This will be a unique opportunity to gain an understanding of the theory, rationale, and mechanics of defining and maintaining PMI’s professional standards.  Beth will entertain any questions and promises to take back to PMI any items requested by the Chapter membership.  As her new role with the PMI Chapter Member Advisory Group (CMAG) begins the week of our Chapter meeting, the timing is perfect for our chapter voice to be heard.
