  • What is the difference between Contact Hours and PDUs?

    One hour of classroom instruction equals one contact hour. If you have completed a university or college course on project management that met for three hours per week for 15 weeks, you would record 45 contact hours. If only a portion of a course dealt with project management, only the hours spent on project management can be applied toward the total.

    PDUs are the measuring unit used to quantify approved learning and professional service activities.

  • Do Contact Hours have an expiry date?

    No. PMI® does not mandate any expiry timeline for contact hours earned to qualify for the PMP® Exam, as long as you retain the proof (certificate). There is no deadline or expiry date, though the contact hours must have been acquired before the submission of the application to PMI®. For example, if you earn the contact hours in 2013, there's nothing stopping you from taking the exam in 2017.

  • If I fail the PMP® Exam, how soon can I retake it?

    You are granted a one-year eligibility period in which to pass the examination. During the eligibility period, you may take the examination up to three times. If you fail the examination three times within your one-year eligibility period, you must wait one year from the date of the last examination you took to reapply for the certification. However, after failing a certification examination three times, candidates may opt to apply for any other PMI® certification.

  • How do I apply for PMP® re-examination?

    Participants are granted three chances to pass the PMP® exam in one year.

Example, Professional Mr. A has managed 2 projects in 2016, Project I ran from Jan'16 to Aug'16 (8 months) and Project II ran from April'16 to Dec'16 (9 months). In this case, we have an overlap of 5 months (Apr'16 to Aug'16). So, the experience for these 5 months will be counted as 5 months and not as 10 months (5x2=10). So, the non-overlapping experience is 12 months.
