What is SeminarsWorld?

Practitioners sign up to attend 1-hour to 4-day deep dive seminars to learn about a specific topic with an instructor(s) for the duration of the seminar. This small group environment enables interaction/role play and information sharing between facilitators (instructors) and attendees. PMI offers SeminarsWorld events 9-11 times throughout the year, with each event providing 6-12 individual seminars for participants to attend. SeminarsWorld courses, traditionally held in a face-to-face environment, transformed into a series of virtual events in 2020. The offerings going forward will be a hybrid approach, allowing us to offer both formats in 2021.

The selection process is highly competitive, so preparation is key!

What to Submit

The SeminarsWorld educational program supports the elements of the PMI Talent Triangle®, which promotes the holistic development of leadership capabilities, strategic and business management, and technical skills.
