CANCELLED - 2020 INTERCOLLEGIATE PROJECT MANAGEMENT TRIATHLON (IPMT)

Purpose/Objective: The PMI Pittsburgh Chapter Intercollegiate Project

Management Triathlon (IPMT) is an undergraduate-level competition that challenges

competitors’ PMBOK Knowledge and Practical Teamwork. 

The IPMT is a two-day event that combines traditional team and individual quiz bowl competitions with team challenge activities. Quizzes are based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Competitors must be part- or full-time undergraduate students who do not already have a PMI certification. Winners will receive Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exam fee reimbursement, PMI Pittsburgh Chapter Membership, IPMT swag, and professional and peer contacts.

For more information, please contact PittsburghPMIAcademicOutreach@gmail.com

Two competitive events showcase participants PMBOK Knowledge, including:

  • The Team Quiz Bowl: 

Teams of four students compete in a Jeopardy-style event. All questions are based upon

PMI’s A Guide to the Project Management of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) at a difficulty

level equivalent to that necessary to achieve PMI’s Certified Associate in Project

Management (CAPM) designation. However, unlike the CAPM Examination in which

questions are all multiple-choice, IPMT Questions are fill-in-the-blank or short

answer format. 

  • The Individual All-Star Quiz Bowl: 

Also a Jeopardy-style event,

but exclusively for individuals. It follows a similar format to the Team Quiz

Bowl. Individual participants are selected based upon the degree of knowledge

demonstrated in the team events. All Quiz Bowl answers shall be judged by a group

of Certified Project Management Professional (PMP) Judges, who are volunteers of

the PMI Pittsburgh Chapter.

The third competitive event showcases participants Practical Teamwork:

  • The Student Challenge Activities:

This competitive event involves team-building activities that challenge both physical and mental dexterity. Participation in these activities, which also provide the opportunity to relax and have fun, will be judged and prizes will be awarded to the top team.
