Abstract: By applying the heuristic principle in several complex variables obtained by Aladro and Krantz, we shall prove some normality criteria for families of holomorphic mappings of several complex variables into $P^N(C)$, the complex N-dimensional projective space, related to Green's and Nochka's Picard type theorems. The equivalence of normality to being uniformly Montel at a point will be obtained. Some examples will be given to complement our theory in this paper.
