Answering the Call

Answering Jay and Sandy's call for low cost solutions to help veterans prepare for and pass the PMP exam, we have launched our '1776' campaign to offer our eLearning course to qualified veterans at a special low cost.

Black Diamond Charities (in partnership with PMI Chicagoland Chapter) does a basic project management training class twice a year (Spring and Fall)

Have remaining GI benefits?

There is a good chance you can get your PMP® certification exam fee reimbursed.

Warrior Summit Coalition:

There are many organizations focused on helping veterans.  One in particular, where we have friends, is the Warrior Summit Coalition.  From their website:

Many Active, Reserve and National Guard components return from service and have difficulty finding the proper direction and guidance for connecting available programs and services. WSC works daily uniting the veteran community to provide veterans and their family members immediate access to veteran support services
