Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Registration is still open for IIL's virtual conference "Agile and Scrum — Driving Success Through Innovation". Join other PMI OVOC members who have already registered and submitted PDUs. Everything is on-line and requires only the following three simple steps.

1. Register — Receive a 10 per cent discount on the $150 USD registration fee by registering via the Member Login section of the PMI OVOC website. Once logged in, go to the "Members Section" tab and select "Members Agile and Scrum Conference Member Registration Discount" for further directions and obtaining the discount code.

2. Attend — At your own time and convenience, select from 18 video presentations and two bonus courses focussing on Getting Started, Current Practices, Advanced Topics and Case Studies. The conference closes on Aug. 30, 2016.

3. Submit PDUs — Submitting PDUs is fast and easy by following these two basic steps: A) When you are logged into IIL's virtual event, go to the "Files" tab in your "Briefcase" and open the PDF titled "How to claim PDUs". This document lists the activity ID for each session. B) Log into ‪PMI.org and click on "Report PDUs" under Certification Status. Enter IIL's Provider ID (1003), the relevant activity ID and the dates you attended. The PDUs should automatically map to the appropriate sections in the talent triangle, and then all you need to do is submit.

If you have questions or feedback, please send to info@pmiovoc.org. We would love to hear from you!
