Update on the 5th edition of the PMBOK & other Credential Revisions by PMI
At this year’s Registered Education Provider’s (REP) breakfast held at the Global Congress in Vancouver, Canada on October 20, 2012, I had the opportunity to network with other REPs as well as to learn about the latest news from PMI relevant to our profession. We learned about the following updates to their credentials and I thought I’d share them with you:
