Registration

To maintain the intimate, hands-on learning environment, space is limited. Most institutes sell out within days of open registration. Only prepaid registrations are guaranteed. Register Now.

Cost

$4,400 includes instruction, course materials, student manual, attendance certificates and all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) during both course sessions.

Course Material

Attendees are required to bring a laptop computer for ease of reviewing the materials and assignments during the session. Attendees will be given assignments to complete in the interim between sessions 1 and 2 that are considered a part of the course curriculum. Participants choosing not to complete the interim assignments may be denied a completion certificate.

All course material will be supplied via flash drive. By switching to electronic materials PMI is able to provide participants with much more information than they could with paper copies, with much more interactive materials (spreadsheets, etc.), and the opportunity to insert materials in real time as fruitful discussions during class lead to the addition of materials specific to those discussions.

Travel

The Indianapolis Airport (IND) is approximately one hour from the Purdue University campus.

Lodging

Although hotel cost is not included, a block of rooms will be reserved for students attending the class. Hotel information will be sent in participants’ registration confirmation letters. Transportation between the hotel and Purdue campus will be provided.
