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 3 chances to pass the PMP® exam in one year, for the second and the third attempt for the examination, the participants have to to pay an additional fee of $275 (for members) or $375 (non-members) as a re-examination fee. The participants will have a waiting period of 1 year before the can re-appear for the exam in case they don't pass in their first 3 attempts.

    What does 36 months of non-overlapping experience requirement mean for the PMP® Exam?
    According to PMIs calculation, the concept of non-overlapping experience refers to the following:
    If a professional is working on multiple projects at the same time, then the experience will be counted for one project over that stipulated period for which he/she worked on the project.
    Example: Mr. A has managed 2 projects in 2016, Project 1 ran from Jan'16 to Aug'16 (8 months) and Project 2 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). The non-overlapping experience is 12 months.
