PMI-OC PMP/CAPM Workshop–Winter Session concluded, Spring Session to start

The Project Management Institute of Orange County in California puts on a PMP/CAPM workshop three times a year.

I took the workshop last year in the Spring Session 2012, and decided after I passed the CAPM exam in October to volunteer to help put on the workshop for the Winter Session 2013.

It was rewarding work because besides putting on the workshop, the members of the PMP/CAPM Workshop Committee is also charged with improving it by improving the quality of the instruction, the study materials, and the level of support we give to the students as they prepare for the exam.

Even now as the Winter Session has concluded, we are gearing up for the Spring Session which starts at the end of this month.   But that challenge of putting on a workshop so soon after concluding the last one pales in comparison to our larger challenge of making sure that the Fall Session of the workshop is geared up for the 5th Edition of the PMBOK Guide.

That is why I am putting so much effort into going through the Guide because I need to be able to help get the instructors up to speed, to update the study materials, and to be prepared to help the students study for a totally new exam which starts July 31st of this year.

But it is worth it, because the challenge of getting a PMP seems to grow with each passing year as PMI increases the requirements.   For that reason, more and more people are realizing as I did that they are not eligible for the PMP and must take the CAPM instead.    That is one of the reasons why we offered a combined PMP/CAPM workshop for the Winter Session 2013.   Because of the increasing challenge, I want those who are trying to aim for that certification to know that they are not going it alone:   PMI-OC is there to help them achieve it!
