Eligibility Requirements

Eligibility Requirements

Only experienced project managers may apply to take the PMP® exam. The amount of experience required depends on your academic qualifications.

Project Management Experience

If you have obtained a four-year degree, you need less project management experience than if you do not. Also, if you have a bachelor's or master’s degree in project management that has been accredited by the PMI’s Global Accreditation Center, you will need even less experience to apply.

Type Experience Required Interval Required PM Education Required
High-school diploma / Secondary School Leaving Certificate 60 months leading projects 60 months leading projects 35 hours
Four Year Degree 36 months leading projects Within the last eight years 35 hours
PMI Global Accreditation Center approved bachelor's or master’s degree 24 months leading projects Within the last eight years 0 hours

Recording Your Experience

In terms of recording your project management experience, there are some rules you need to be aware of:

  • Project management experience is non-overlapping. The PMI accounts for the number of months you have worked as a project manager, not the number of projects. Therefore, if you managed two projects simultaneously over a six month period, that experience is worth six months in total and not twelve.
  • The month is the unit of measure. The PMI assumes that projects start on the first of the month and finish on the last day of the month. This might involve a little adjustment of the actual project dates to avoid overlaps.
  • When is eight years ago? This also has consequences in terms of your eight year eligibility window. If you are making your application in the middle of March, your experience needs to date from April eight years ago!
