With more than 1,000,000 certified project managers (as of end 2021), the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification is valid across multiple organizations and is, by some distance, the most popular certificate for project managers worldwide. It is designed for project managers with at least 3 years’ practical experience in leading project management positions.
Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is proof of very high quality project management. Obtaining a certificate calls for a considerable personal commitment and a significant level of organization. Here are the key organization pointers to make your path to PMP certification a smooth one:
You must meet certain requirements to be eligible to take a exam of the Project Management Institute (PMI)®— based on your project management experience in particular. Only those candidates meeting these requirements will be permitted by PMI to take the PMP® exam. Check the PMI® website for more information. A PMP® credential holder is also expected to maintain ethical standards at all times. These standards have been laid down in a code of conduct covering a range of different areas, e.g. how to respond to a conflict of interests. Failure to follow these standards could result in the loss of PMP® status.
As a seminar participant, you will receive detailed seminar materials as well as the print version of the “PMI® Authorized PMP® Exam Prep” and the “PMBOK® Guide” to prepare for the exam.
PMI membership is not an essential part of attaining PMP certification — but it is recommended. It makes financial sense for you (and your company) as the examination charge is discounted and the digital version of the PMBOK® Guide is included for free.

You’ll need a pmi.org account to kick the process off. The go to www.pmi.org to apply for PMI® authorization to take the PMP® exam. You have 90 days to complete your online application. During this period, you can access your application at any time to work on it. Your application will be reviewed and then you’ll need to pay an exam fee if you’re qualified to move forward. We will be happy to help you in this process. Contact us for more information.
PMI selects applications at random to check the information they contain. Should your application by selected, you will be given three months to verify your application data. If you are not selected, or you have successfully completed the auditing process, you will receive the “Letter of Eligibility”. You need this to schedule your exam date. There is no official figure on the probability of being audited. Experience shows that there is a 10-30% chance of selection.
Once approved to take the exam, you’ll need to pay an exam fee. Upon this you can schedule your exam time at a testing site near you (or you can take it online). You will not be permitted to take the exam before exman fee was paid. Exam fees: EUR 345 (members) and EUR 465 (non members).
We recommend that you schedule the exam about 4 four weeks after completing the final seminar module. Exam dates can be coordinated online through a Pearson Vue Test Center. You will be asked to take the exam either at a computer workstation at a Pearson Vue Test Center (in many German cities) or as online proctored exam at home.
Our Online Test Tool offers a unique opportunity to monitor your performance. We recommend that you wait until your results are satisfactory before sitting the examination.
The time has come for the exam! The PMP exam consists of 180 various types of questions to be completed within 4 hours. The standard exam language is English but you can also choose another language, e.g. Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Bahasa Indonesian, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese and Turkish.
If you do not yet meet the practical admission requirements for the PMP, then perhaps the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® is right for you? In doing so, you will definitely prove that you have the same knowledge as a PMP® credential holder, even if you do not yet have the same practical experience.
