Did you know that graduates from GAC accredited programs now receive a major reduction in the experience requirement for all PMI certifications? The PMI Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs (GAC) is excited to announce that effective with the release of the new PMI certification application, graduates of a GAC accredited program are granted substantial credit toward the experience requirement when they complete an application for any PMI certification.
