Do you want to know what are the PMP certification requirements? Here is what you need:

  • 4-year bachelor degree
  • 4500 hours of project management experience
  • 35 contact hours/PDUs of Project Management Education

If you do not have a 4-year degree, you can still appear for the PMP certification exam if you have:

Some concerns that are answered here:

  1. How can I reschedule to take my exam online after being canceled due to lockdown?

Those candidates whose exams were canceled can reschedule their exams through their online Pearson VUE account. Here, you can choose the online proctor testing option or the traditional center-based testing option. On the off chance that the testing center in your general vicinity has been reestablished, you will have the option to choose an area/location and an accessible seat. Please note, even if testing centers in your area have not been reopened, you will still see the center-based testing option, but it will say there are no seats accessible.

2. I had scheduled the PMP Exam date, but I would rather take it online. How can I reschedule and choose to take the exam online? Will there be any extra charges for rescheduling?

In your Pearson VUE online account, you can cancel your existing exam date and reschedule choosing the online proctored testing option. PMI is currently waiving exam rescheduling fees.

3. What is the procedure to schedule for PMP online proctored exam?

Before you can go any further, you have to first submit the application payment. Once the payment is received by the Institute, you will then only be able to schedule your online proctored exam. 

Steps: Log in to and navigate to “Review Application Status” under my PMI. Click "Schedule Exam". You will be directed to schedule your online proctored exam through Pearson VUE.

4. Is the Online Exam available for every PMP Candidate?

Almost all PMP candidates can take their exams online. However, PMP online testing is not permitted in certain countries like Japan, Slovenia, and South Korea. Although the candidates in these countries might be able to see the online proctored testing option when they schedule their exam, they will be unable to see availability for online testing. PMP candidates in those countries must take their exams in a testing center.
