  • This location is shown only to members

This is an event of Career Network Ministry's Tech Skills Team! The location is in 30 minutes of walk from the Spring Hill metro station of the Silver Line.

Join the study group to explore Integration and Stakeholder knowledge areas of PMBOK(r).

General info

Come and Join others interested in obtaining their PMP certifications from Project Management Institute® (PMI).  In this facilitated study group, members will lead discussions on one or more of PMI's 10 knowledge Areas.  Each session will have seasoned PMP certified professionals in attendance to serve as facilitators:  They will answer questions, advise, and provide guidance. Each week there will be a deep dive in two of the knowledge areas.  You may attend all the sessions; or, you may attend only those sessions that discuss Knowledge Areas you need help understanding.

All Participants are encourage to volunteer to prepare a presentation on a Knowledge Area.  This is intended to help the presenter get a deeper understanding and learn by sharing the knowledge.  However, you can still participate if you chose not to present.  The Facilitators will lead the Questions & Answers (Q&A) sessions, problem solving workshops, quizzes, or any combination.

This is intended to provide a low stress, low cost option to those that want a PMP certification.

For a limited time, this program is completely free. However, there is a $99 security deposit, which will be returned after you become a PMP or land a new or better job and stay in that job for more than 90 days.

We also can transfer your security deposit to our partner PMP training providers, if you request to.

Can the security deposit be waived?

The security deposit is waived for:

• Graduates of previous PMP boot camps that the Tech Skills Team organized.

• Personal guests of confirmed attendees.

• Volunteers of the Career Network Ministry based on its leadership request - please contact Ihar Irkho.

• Volunteers of the HIRE Ministry based on its leadership request - please contact John Coleman III.

• Tech Skills Team members in a good standing - your name should be displayed at


Why security deposit?

This program is expensive and costs thousands of dollars, which are paid by our donors. This program has been offered since June of 2012. However, a lack of motivation, committment and/or ability was its biggest problem until we introduced this security deposit. Please show us your interest to succeed and we will help you as much as we can at no cost to you.

    Looks great, but I have been informed that I will be on TDY for a few of those dates. I will be interested in following along if possible.
