    Military Members

    Welcome to PMI Northern Utah Chapter. There are no better ways to begin your transition than reaching out to a new network and gaining certification. You have come to the right place. The Northern Utah Chapter warmly welcomes military and veterans. The project management profession is an ideal career for military veterans transitioning into the civilian workforce. Your skills are directly transferable to the project management profession. Leading cross-functional teams to ensure accomplishment of mission objectives (strategic leadership skill), managing budgets and scheduling activities (technical skills), and conflict mediation and performance appraisal (soft skills), are all key proficiencies military veterans and project managers share.  

    Project management employers value military experience. Industry research suggests strong ties between military experience and the success of candidates interested in becoming a project management practitioner.

    Overall, many military veterans have the personal and performance competencies to succeed as a certified project manager.  With your experience and a PMI credential, you can distinguish yourself to potential employers and open doors to new opportunities.
