Welcome to PMI Mass Bay Study Groups

Study Groups

About our Study Groups

Are you preparing to get your PMP, PgMP or CAPM? Do you want to prepare with a group of highly motivated fellow PMI Mass Bay members? Then our Study Groups may be just for you!

April 2018 Update: Our pilot study group program began in March. Our second cycle is planned to begin the end of August. We are looking for volunteer study group leaders - please see below.

PMI MASS BAY's PMP Study Groups provides a flexible, collaborative and low-cost alternative to commercial prep courses. The group offers structure and motivation - a great alternative to studying on your own. This service is free for PMI MASS BAY members, but any materials needed will be at your expense.

How can I participate in a Study Group?

  • Be a member in good standing of the PMI Mass Bay chapter (two easy steps)
  • Meet qualifications to sit for the PMI exam
  • Start the application through the pmi.org website (you will need to complete the application within two weeks of first study group meeting).
  • Be willing to meet in person on a weekly basis.
  • Be willing to participate actively in the group.
  • Be willing to schedule your exam 30 days after the study group ends.
