Send them an e-mail asking to arrange a meet n' greet, and tell them you are a current CP and a PI hopeful. In theory this is supposed to be an informal meeting, but treat it like an interview! Ask questions about how they got where they are today, and what you can do now as a current CP to improve your chances.

This is the advice I got, and I found it super helpful! Also, tell EVERYONE you want to apply for the PI! Your trainers, co-workers, managers, coordinators. You never know what advice they might have, or who they might know. Good luck!
I know and I'm excited to get the training in a new role. But I've already done a CP and doing another (after college graduation) seems kinda stagnant or even moving backward. Ok I'm done being a negative nancy.
