Exam & Certification FAQs

Can I take a paper-based certification examination?

While computer-based testing (CBT) is the standard for PMI exams, paper-based testing may be available if:

    • The closest CBT site is 240 km (150 miles) away. 
    • A CBT site is not available in your country and traveling across country borders is not allowed or burdensome.

However, you will not receive your exam report on the same day of the exam. Instead, you will be able to access the report in six to eight weeks after the examination date. An email will be sent to you once the report is posted online.

 

What does the certification exam cover?

The PgMP certification examination will cover the following domains, which are shown with an estimate percentage of the questions you will receive:

    • Strategic Program Management (15%)
    • Program Life Cycle (44%) – which is further divided into:
      • Initiating (6%)
      • Planning (11%)
      • Executing (14%)
      • Controlling (10%)
      • Closing (3%)
    • Benefits Management (11%)
    • Stakeholder Management (16%)
    • Governance (14%)

 

Are there additional certification steps I should know of?

Upon submitting your certification application, you may be selected for audit. If selected, you will be notified to submit additional documents such as copies of diploma and signatures from supervisors from the projects/programs listed in your application.

Once the audit is completed, a panel review will commence. A panel of portfolio managers will assess your experience based on your responses to the Program Management Experience Summaries part on the PgMP application. If you fail the panel review, you will not be able to continue to the examination. This process will take around four weeks.

Once you pass the panel review, you can proceed to taking the exam.

 

Will I need to fulfill requirements to maintain my certification?

Yes, you do. Certified PgMP professionals need to have 60 PDUs per three-year cycle – minimum 35 Education PDUs and maximum 25 Giving Back PDUs. Education PDUs are further broken down into minimum 8 Technical PDUs, 8 Leadership PDUs, 8 Strategic PDUs, and 11 PDUs from any area of the PMI Talent Triangle.

 

Can I retake my certification exam if I fail?

Yes, you can. In addition to your first attempt, you can re-take the exam two more times within your one-year eligibility period.
