Re: How To Meet PMP Requirements

The Project Management Professional PMP eligibility is based on academic education, project management experience, and project management professional training.

Ensuring you meet the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification requirements is the first step to becoming PMP certified.

After approval, you can take your PMP exam at your nearest Prometrics testing center.

The computer based exam allows you to receive your score immediately. Upon passing, you are approved to use the PMP credential for 3 years.

During this time must earn 60 professional development units (PDUs) to maintain your PMP status for an additional 3 years.
