PMP Exam Requirements

PMI® PMP Exam Requirements

The Project Management Training Experts

In order to register and sit for the PMP exam, you must apply to the Project Management Institute (PMI) and document minimum background, experience, and education requirements on your application. These are summarized in the table below.

You will detail these requirements in your application with the PMI. Although, you are not required to provide documented proof at the time of application, if you are selected for a random audit you will have to provide proof then. So be certain these are accurate and you can provide the appropriate documentation. If you are unable to prove any of these requirements, you’ll fail the audit and your application may be rejected.
