Am I Eligible to Become a PMP?

The PMP certification has been developed to recognize a professional's advanced knowledge and abilities in leading and directing project teams. Consider becoming a PMP if you are an experienced project manager and would like to solidify your skills, distinguish yourself from others in your profession or at your organization, pursue a new or higher position within the project management field, and increase your earning potential.

To sit for the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam, you must meet the following requirements:

  • A secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or the global equivalent)
  • 7,500 hours spent leading and directing projects
  • 35 hours of education in project management

OR

  • A four-year degree
  • 4,500 hours spent leading and directing projects
  • 35 hours of education in project management

What Are the Next Steps?

If you meet the above prerequisites, then you are ready for the PMP exam. If you do not meet all of these requirements you can either continue your studies and work up to the PMP requirements or you can look at one of the other project management certifications that the Project Management Institute (PMI) has to offer.

If you meet the PMP requirements, you are eligible to apply and sit for the PMP certification exam. Many potential PMPs enroll in training courses to better prepare them for their upcoming PMP exam.

Continuing Certification Requirements (CCRs)

Once you have passed the PMP exam and received the PMP certification, you must continue your learning and development in order to maintain your PMP status. For the PMP certification, a total of 60 professional development units (PDUs) are required over the course of three years. These PDUs can be earned through various project management activities and functions, such as research, writing and publishing articles, holding speeches or seminars on project management related topics, or engaging full time in project management activities. 

The purpose of the CCR program is to enhance the development of PMP certified professionals, encourage individual learning opportunities, provide a standardized manner in which to attain and record professional development activities, and to maintain the value and global recognition of the PMP certification.
