Frequently Asked Questions

Why get PMI's Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential?

The Project Management Institute's P.M.P.® credential is considered by many to be the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. It is globally recognized and demonstrates that you have the experience, education and competency to successfully lead and direct projects. In tough times, it may increase your marketability at a job or while looking for one. It may also lead to higher pay than your non-credentialed peers.

What are the requirements to sit for the PMP® exam?

In order to meet the exam requirements, you need to have one of the following:

  • A four-year degree (bachelor's or the global equivalent) and at least three years of project management experience, with 4,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education, OR
  • A secondary diploma (high school or the global equivalent) with at least five years of project management experience, with 7,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.

What if I don't meet the above requirements?

If you do not meet the P.M.P.® requirements listed above, you may want to look at the Certified Associate in Project Management® (C.A.P.M.) certification.

The C.A.P.M.® certification is the entry-level certification designed for those with little or no project management experience but with a fundamental knowledge of effective project management practices and an understanding of its terminology. This is an especially good certification to have if you are new to the field of project management due to a career change and want to blend your current experience with it. The C.A.P.M.® can send you in the right direction to achieve this goal.
