The Education Department is the largest P&L center within the PMI South Florida Chapter. We take great pride in delivering relevant products and services that enrich and enable our membership and further the community’s awareness of project management as a profession. Like all other Chapter departments and their teams, the Education Department is 100% volunteer staffed, bound by the PMI Code of Ethics, with a great passion for giving and teaching.
Our strategy for each new calendar year begins in October, with planning through February and refinement throughout the year. Our selection and execution of products and services includes a forward and backward-looking analysis of a complex mix of careful considerations.
Product and Service Considerations Include:
The Education Department is made up of four Centers of Competency (COCs) :
Certification and Standards: Director Linda Gardner is responsible for all Chapter products and services that prepare students for PMI Credentials. This includes a dynamic, iterative, refinement of course content to ensure that exam preparation remains relevant and accurate to evolving standards and exam content.
Seminars: Director Maryann Evans and her team are responsible for all education products and services that do not prepare students for PMI Credentials. This includes our annual flagship event, the Professional Development Day (PDD) typically held in May with over 300 attendees. This year’s PDD will span 2-full days and include evening activities.
Dean of Education: Director Amy Kahrim works horizontally across all three COCs. She assures quality of content and provides guidance to Directors on matters of Chapter and department processes and procedures. This includes strategic alignments (internal and external), and reviewing and approving contractual arrangements. Amy is also the department’s resident expert on large-event planning and coordination (e.g. PDD).
Note: The Chapter's Education Outreach activities are not managed under this department. Please choose Education Outreach from the "Get Involved" menu.
