Once you earn and report the appropriate number of PDUs required to maintain your credential, PMI will e-mail a PDF of the application and a link so you can complete the renewal process online. If you do not wish to complete the process online, you can download and print out the PDF, complete it, and send it by postal mail with the appropriate renewal fees included. Applications sent by fax will not be accepted.
If you continue an active certification status for the entire duration of your certification/CCR cycle-3 years-you will not be given a refund.
If you can document financial hardship, PMI may grant a fee waiver. If you believe you should be eligible for the waiver, please e-mail Customer Care.
At this time, the renewal process cannot accommodate partial payment options. In the future, PMI hopes to accept a variety of payment schedules.
PMI recognizes that hardships may arise. Credential holders who are military personnel called to active duty, incapacitated due to illness or out on maternity leave can request an extension.
Please send a written request to PMI’s certification department. Your certification will then be marked non-active. PMP credential holders with 10 years of good certification standing may qualify for the PMP-Retired status.
If you complete required PDUs during the suspension period to meet your CCR, you will be able to renew your credential. However, if you can document the necessary PDUs from the original CCR cycle, you can use PDUs earned during your suspension period as activities toward the cycle in which these PDUs were actually earned.
You receive your PMI ID number, also known as your Member ID, when you apply for the credential exam or when you first become a PMI member. You use this number to report PDUs.
Your certification number is shown on the certificate as the PMP, CAPM, PgMP, PMI-SP or PMI-RMP number.
NOTE: If you cannot find your ID numbers, e-mail Customer Care or call
+1-610-356-4600. If you have no previous association with PMI-as a member, former member, credential holder, former credential holder or Marketplace customer-do not have an identification number.
You can start earning and reporting PDU activities as soon as you earn a credential.
In this situation, you should estimate the percentage of time that was directly relevant to project management. For example, a 15-hour course deemed 50 percent relevant would earn 7.5 PDUs. Be prepared to justify your estimates in the event that you are selected for audit.
You do not need supporting documentation to report PDUs and renew your credential. You should complete the online Activity Reporting Forms in the appropriate amount of time and submit the Self-Directed Learning (SDL) worksheet for your reported SDL activities.
NOTE: PMI recommends you maintain a personal folder for all PDU-related documentation and keep this documentation for at least 18 months after your CCR cycle has ended. If you are randomly selected for an audit, you will need to provide this documentation.
No. You may submit one Activity Reporting Form for the event, which covers the total number of PDUs. However, you should mention the individual activities under item two, “Program/Activity Title.”
The program number would be in the format XXXX-XXXXXX, where the first four digits are the chapter’s provider ID number, and the last six digits are assigned to each activity by the component. Generally, chapter ID numbers begin with “C”
NOTE: If you attend a class given by a PMI Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.), the number is the same as the R.E.P.’s ID number.
Yes. The activity would be claimed under Category 2C, “Speaker on a Project/Program Management Topic.” The only qualification is that the program must be delivered to a new audience each time you present it.
You may assume that courses offered by R.E.P.s are related to project and/or program management. If a course does not appear to be related, please notify PMI at once. If you are reporting attendance at a non-R.E.P. program or a self-directed learning (SDL) project, please use the process areas of the PMBOK® Guide as a reference to qualify project management topics.
The new system, CCRS, facilitates PMI’s CCR program. PMI’s credential holders can use CCRS to complete these credential maintenance tasks:
Report professional development units (PDUs) online for multiple PMI credentials
Search activities (courses/events) that award PDUs
Search for activity (course/event) providers including PMI Registered Education Providers (R.E.P.s) and components
View and print PDU transcripts
No. You will use the same username and password that you use to access www.PMI.org. CCRS uses PMI single sign-on technology, which enables you to log in only once to gain access to all PMI systems and resources.
You need to register with PMI before using CCRS. During the registration process, you will link your PMI ID with your new PMI registered user account. Follow these steps when you register with PMI to avoid creating a duplicate account.
Step 1: Access CCRS at www.pmi.org/ccrs and select “Log In”.
Step 2: Select “Click here to Register” link to continue.
Step 3: Read the information to determine the correct registration option.
Step 4: Follow the instructions to check your account information and to create a username and password.
CCRS features a comprehensive online user guide. You can view the user guide in the Additional Resources panel at the right side of the CCRS website.
Credential holders may earn PDUs towards the maintenance of their credential through formal academic courses or courses offered by a provider (R.E.P. or Component). However, these are only two of the five categories of PDU earning opportunities in which a credential holder may participate. The other categories of PDU earning opportunities include self-directed learning, volunteering, authoring and other types of project management experience. CCRS uses the term “activities” to describe all courses or events for which a credential holder may complete to earn PDUs.
No. The new system provides online PDU reporting for all PMI credentials that are included in the CCR program. You will use CCRS to claim all PDUs earned towards your PMP®, PgMP®, PMI-SP or PMI-RMP credentials.
Not necessarily. The number of PDUs for each credential is independent of other PMI credentials and therefore, the PDU values for the PMI-SP and PMI-RMP credentials do not add up to equal the value of PDUs for PMP or PgMP credentials. The number of PDUs applicable to a PMI-SP or PMI-RMP credential is based on the amount of material relevant to those specialty areas, while the number of PDUs applicable to the PMP/PgMP credentials is relevant to general project management. Project management is made up of many knowledge areas of which risk management and scheduling management are only two. It is possible that a particular activity may not apply to project risk or project scheduling at all, but if the materials do apply to these areas, only the portion that is pertinent to these areas can be counted towards those credentials.
PMI conducts application audits to confirm the experience and/or education documented on credential applications. The purpose of the audit is to enhance the credibility of the certification program and of the credential holders. For each credential, a specified percentage of applications are randomly selected for audit.
The certification audit team processes audit materials within one week upon their arrival at PMI. Once PMI reviews and approves audit materials, PMI will send an e-mail containing your eligibility code and exam scheduling instructions.
You can send your completed audit forms, depending on where you live, by regular postal mail or express courier service, to either address below. PMI will not accept faxed or emailed audits documents. Please send all materials at one time, or in one envelope, to expedite the processing time.

Yes. Audit materials are strictly confidential and are not shared with any external organization unless required through legal action involving PMI.
No. PMI retains the original documentation according to its internal auditing procedures.
PMI can furnish an audit candidate with a general letter outlining the purpose of the audit to any verifying manager or supervisor.
A manager or supervisor can type their contact information, as long as their signature is handwritten.
Candidates can have a colleague, peer, client or sponsor who has intimate knowledge of the project verify.
PMI is very sensitive to this situation, and encourages candidates to have the information verified in a way that is consistent with company practices and policies. Candidates may black out any proprietary information so as long as there are no changes or omissions to the original information provided to us. PMI may also provide a letter of intent to any managers or supervisors upon request.
A manager may physically hand the sealed and signed envelopes back to the audit candidate.
PMI will not penalize an audit candidate for this oversight; however it is important that we are aware of the situation so that we can flag the piece of mail in anticipation of the remaining audit materials.
Although it is preferred that your experience verification form(s) are returned to PMI in a signed and sealed envelope, PMI understands that this may not be possible in some cases due to internal business regulations, customs inspections, etc. Please make a note on the back of the envelope in question that the signature was omitted.
The Experience Verification Form and Experience PDF attachment can be e-mailed to any verifying manager or supervisor; however because the original audit forms need to be submitted in the sealed and signed envelopes, PMI will not accept faxed copies. PMI prefers that the candidate mail all documents in one parcel.
The supervising manager can still verify although they are not at the company. If this option is not feasible, a colleague from the project can verify, or a current manager or supervisor, who has intimate knowledge of the project, can verify.
Not always. PMI does reserve the right to do so if there is a specific question related to verification.
The supervising manager can still verify. If this option is not feasible, a colleague from the project can verify, or a current manager or supervisor who has direct knowledge of the project can verify.
Candidates are required to send a copy of the original and a letter outlining a general translation.
Contact hours are the actual amount of time a candidate spends receiving instruction in project management or any of the 5 knowledge areas of project management. For example, if a candidate takes a 1-day class that last 8 hours and provides instruction in project management, the candidate earns 8 contact hours. Contact hours are not equal to PDUs or CEUs. Additionally, test candidates cannot obtain PDUs; they can earn contact hours only. Candidates can submit any class, seminar, on the job training, online training, and distance learning classes whose learning objectives include project management or any of its domains. Independent study and PMI chapter meetings are not accepted for the contact hour requirement.
PMI will accept a letter of completion from the course administrator, HR department, or manager on company letterhead to verify that the course was completed.
No. Audit candidates must contact the PMI R.E.P. directly for the necessary verification.
No. This does not provide any information relating to completion of the course.
The former degree is not necessary.
Copies of your certificates are sufficient. PMI recognizes that your certificates are important to you. Therefore, PMI suggests that you send copies of the originals be sent. PMI cannot guarantee that original certificates will be returned.
The degree does not need to be taken out of the professional frame. If it is too large to photocopy, please submit a transcript.
Yes. Certification candidates selected for an audit are expected to complete the audit process before they are provided eligibility for the examination.
PMI will not communicate with any Prometric Testing Center for the purpose of reserving a testing seat. Candidates are not able to reserve testing appointments until they have been granted eligibility for the examination. Eligibility is not granted until the audit is completed. Without an eligibility letter, the only information that a testing center may provide is whether a testing date or a particular test site is near or at capacity. If you need to locate a testing center near you, visit Prometric’s website.
In the case of a failed audit, the credential fee, minus the processing fee will be refunded. The Certification Department will address further actions on a case-by-case basis.
If a candidate chooses not to complete the audit, it is considered a failed audit due to non-conformance. In the case of a failed audit, the examination fee, minus the processing fee will be refunded. A candidate may reapply after one year. At that time, a new credential application and payment must be submitted, and the application will be subject to a re-audit.
Once you are eligible, PMI will e-mail you examination scheduling instructions with your eligibility code which you will need when scheduling your exam. You can schedule your exam appointment online or by telephone.
Immediately after the completion of the Computer Based Test result will be displayed on the screen along with the print out of detailed report.
The exam is conducted primarily through CBT (Computer Based Test) at Prometric Testing Centre around the world, with few exceptions to certain countries such as Nigeria and Tanzania where Paper Based Test are administered. The allotted time to complete the exam is 4 hours.
The PMP exam consist of 200 multiple-choice questions. Of the 200 question, 25 are considered pretest question which will not affect the passing score. PMI is not disclosing the passing score.
