7 steps to document your Project Management Experience for PMP application


If this is your first time applying for the PMP exam, it’s strongly recommended to consider a careful check on the PMI’s audit procedure to make trim your application process as smooth as possible. Here I layout 7 steps including some special tips of how to document your managing experience to apply for PMP.


1. First, check your eligibility:
Prerequisites
- Secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or the global equivalent).
- 7,500 hours leading and directing projects.
- 60 months unique non-overlapping professional project management experience.
- 35 hours of project management education (35 contact hours).
Or
- Four-year degree.
- 4,500 hours leading and directing projects.
- 36 months unique non-overlapping professional project management experience.
- 35 hours of project management education (35 contact hours).


2. Second, use an excel file to prepare all relevant information in advance before submitting the application to PMI:
- Record your information about secondary degree or four-year degree.
- Record your 35 contact hours of project management education. Atoha provides certification of 35 contact hours.
- Record your 7,500 hours or 4,500 hours of leading and directing projects, the details as below:

  • Record all your project experience within 8 years up to now.
  • There are maximum 40 hours per week. Let’s use this number to calculate the project experience hours IN TOTAL.
  • Assign the percent of 5 domains: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling, Closing. This must be your real number. You can refer to PMI percent for Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling, Closing in order 13%, 24%, 31%, 25%, 7% (align with the exam after 11 Jan 2016).
  • There is NO need to have all experience in 5 domains for ONE project. Got experience in 3, 4, or 5 domains in ONE project is good as long as you have all experience in 5 domains for ALL projects.
  • There is a MUST to have all experience in 5 domains for ALL projects that you declare.
  • Regarding the description of every project: MUST be maximum 550 characters (including the space). The description should have the project goal, your title and the content. The content includes your experience in the domains that you declared, e.g. if you declare that you have experience in 4 domains of a specific project, then the content should cover and only cover all these 4 domains. Check sample PMP application description here.
  • Record 60 months or 36 months unique non-overlapping professional project management experience.
  • Provide enough your personal information.
  • Provide enough your referral information. You should align with your referrers in advance so that he/she will sign your document when PMI randomly audit your application.


3. Third, create an account on PMI and submit your application - Application Submission
You have 90 days to complete the application once you started it. Copy all the information that you’ve prepared in 2nd step and filled in the form on PMI website.


4. Fourth, Application Completeness Review:
PMI will review your application in maximum 5 business days when submitted online.


5. Fifth, Audit Process:
PMI will randomly choose some applications for audit
- If PMI doesn’t audit your application, you can make the payment and schedule the exam.
- If PMP audits your application, you will need to provide them all the supporting documents including:

- Secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or the global equivalent) or Four-year degree certificate.
- Certificate of 35 contact hours.
- All the project descriptions with the signatures from reference persons: all project descriptions (or 1 project description if you declare only 1 project) from ONE referrer will be signed, then all these descriptions from ONE referrer will be put in 1 envelope, and the referrer must sign on the envelope seal.
- All project descriptions from ALL referrers + the degree + the certificate of 35 contact hour will be put in 1 envelope to send to PMI.


6. Sixth, Application Payment Process:
PMI will let you know if you can make the payment. If PMI rejects your application, you’ll need to review the application again and fix it. If PMI approves that you can make the payment, DON’T MAKE THE PAYMENT RIGHT NOW. You should pay for PMI member fee first, then make the payment for the exam!!! It will save you 11 USD for the 1st try:
- Non PMI member: exam fee $555
- PMI member ($129) + admin fee ($10) + exam fee for member ($405) = $544
- Moreover, as a PMI member, you can get lots of FREE PDUs in 1 year membership when you login http://projectmanagement.com. Login to this website with your PMI account, then the PDUs that you get on http://projectmanagement.com will be synchronized automatically to your account on http://pmi.org so that you don’t need to do anything. In addition, PMI member can save money for reexamination (in worst case) or PMP credential renewal in 3 years.

You will have 1 year from the date of the application approval to select the time and place to take the exam. You can take the exam up to 3 times during this 1 year.


7. Finally, take the exam and pass.
