PMI’s “Program for Preparing U.S. Military for Project Management Careers”
Our Montana Chapter is supporting this national PMI program for local chapters, enabling them to assist military personnel and veterans in obtaining rewarding civilian jobs, while enabling the civilian work force with high quality project professionals.
The PMI is dedicated to providing outreach to the 24M US veterans and approximately 350K who transition from the military every year to understand the value of careers on project management and a project management professional (PMP) Certification.
For military service members and veterans the program offers:
- Membership in a global professional organization
- Training and educational resources to support their career development
- Certification application assistance and exam preparation for all certifications
- Access to PMI’s career services and job board
PMI’s goal with this initiative is to aid veterans, active duty military, Guard, Reserve, and their families to:
Join — Candidates who join PMI and their local chapter immediately become part of an active and supportive community of project professionals.
Qualify — Through PMI and local chapter membership, candidates gain access to professional development opportunities that help them prepare for a project management certification and search for a civilian job.
Certify — All of PMI’s certifications are approved for reimbursement under the GI Bill. Globally recognized and in demand by employers, PMI certification further supports the individual in their career development.
Place — Through mentorship from fellow PMI members, candidates receive the advice and support they need to take the next step in their career transition. Additionally, PMI’s job board offer extensive career support.
