The Academic Outreach programs support teachers and volunteers by providing tools that demonstrate how project management can be applied. These tools include practical application tools, presentations, academic courseware, and judging/coaching/mentoring. Both PMI Global and PMI Phoenix local chapter have resources to share with our academic partners. Resources include:

  • Project Kickoff from PMI Global

    https://www.pmi.org/kickoff  - This is a free 45-minute course available to all learners. The course allows learners to understand the difference between Waterfall and Agile methodologies, as well as understand the basics of project management. This interactive courseware adds a element of fun as the learner works to set up a virtual project and uses checkpoints to test their learning.
  • Project Management Ready Certification
