As a PMI member you are kept up to date on local and global Project Management information in various industries. With over 35 online communities there will never be a question unanswered.

The South Africa Chapter is an exciting community to be part of. The chapter runs a number of breakfasts and evening events featuring local and international speakers. If you're looking for new opportunities, wanting to connect with like minded people and expand your professional network, the South Africa Chapter offers this and much more. PMP Exam preparation sessions are regularly run helping Project Managers get certified, and we have short courses focusing on certain areas of Project Management e.g scheduling or earned value etc.
A person's PMI certification status can usually be verified through the online Certification Registry at https://certification.pmi.org/Registry.aspx
Since certification holders may choose not to be listed in the online Certification Registry, they may hold a PMI certification even if their names do not appear within the listing. Therefore, if you are unable to locate an individual’s name and credential(s) in the registry, you may send a signed release to +1 484 631 1332 and PMI will provide you with a confirmation of their status.
This is normally done on a case-by-case basis. Members who wish to transfer their chapter membership can contact the African Customer Care team. Our team will work with the PMI Membership team to further assist members. Please note that additional chapter membership
fees may apply.
