To maintain your PMP Certification, you must earn 60 professional development units (PDUs) every three years.

Exam

Candidates must take the PMP certification exam within twelve months of their application being approved. The exam consists of 200 multiple-choice questions and lasts four hours.

FAQs

How many questions are asked in the PMP exam?

The PMP examination is comprised of 200 mutually-exclusive, four-option, multiple-choice questions.

How can candidates apply to sit for the exam?

Candidates must complete an application. Candidates are encouraged to apply online at pmi.org. Once started, the application may not be cancelled but may be saved unfinished. It will remain open for 90 days.

How long does it take for PMI to process the application?

Online applications are typically processed within five business days. Individual applications submitted by mail take approximately 10 business days. Once the application and fee have been processed, PMI will electronically send the Examination Scheduling Instructions, confirming that the applicant is eligible to take the exam. 

Eligibility is good for one year from the day that the application was approved. The exam may be taken three times within the eligibility period should applicants not pass on the first attempt. 

How do candidates schedule time to sit for the exam?

Once eligible to take the exam, the examination scheduling instructions received from PMI will instruct the applicant to contact Prometric at www.prometric.com to select a date and location for taking the exam. The PMP exam is a computer-based exam and may be scheduled by applicants at any time available at any of the Prometric sites. 

Information about site locations and scheduling may be found at Prometric’s website. Select the “Professional Licensure and Certification” for test type and “Project Management Institute” for testing program.

What if a candidate has to cancel after scheduling the exam?

You may reschedule or cancel your exam if done at least two full days prior to your exam date. However, canceling or rescheduling the exam within 30 days of a scheduled exam date will incur a rescheduling fee. Be sure to confirm the cancellation/rescheduling guidelines with Prometric when scheduling the exam. 

What if candidates do not pass the exam?

Candidates who do not pass the exam may retake the exam two more times for a total of three times within one year of application approval. If candidates are not able to pass the PMP certification exam within their one-year eligibility period, they must wait one year from the date of the last attempt to reapply for the PMP credential.

Hemant, Dave and Rachel I can’t thank you enough. What an amazing learning experience this has been. It is rare that you come across stand out talent like Hemant; an extraordinary individual who will leave you inspired. I can assure you will take away much more from this course than just a PMP designation. The course is well planned and organized making work/study balance easy. The class is highly interactive. I was always in awe of Hemant's and Dave's ability to command the classroom and keep every student engaged and up to speed with the rest. From our class of 32 talented professionals I not only expanded my professional network but also made some good friends. If you plan to take up a professional development course look no further.
