PMP® Certification Information

To become PMP® certified, you have to meet the eligibility criteria set by PMI® - academic education, project management training and experience. Then you can apply and take the PMP® exam to earn your certificate.

Depending on your level of academic education, the following requirements must be met:

If you have a bachelor’s degree (four-year degree or the global equivalent):

  • 36 months of unique non-overlapping professional management experience leading and directing projects
  • 35 contact hours of project management education/training

If you have a high school diploma, associate’s degree (or global equivalent):

  • 60 months of unique non-overlapping professional management experience leading and directing projects
  • 35 contact hours of project management education/training

Non-overlapping project management experience means that if you worked on multiple projects at the same time in a given month, only one of those projects can count towards the experience requirement for that month. For example, if one project is January 2019 through August 2019 and another is April 2019 through February 2020. Your total months equals 16 unique non-overlapping months.

PMP® Exam Fees

  • PMI® members (the annual membership is $139) –  $405
  • Non-members – $555

Our trainers will help you submit your PMP® Exam Application

  • If you fulfill the PMP® certification requirements, you can register at the PMI website and submit your application for the PMP® exam.
  • After your application has been reviewed and accepted, you will be given an eligibility number, so you can schedule your exam.
  • You are allowed to sit for the exam a maximum of three times during a year (your eligibility period lasts one year from the moment your application is approved).  If you do not pass on the third try you have to wait one year to reapply. And there are costs involved. So be fully prepared to pass on your first try!

Let's take together the first step!
