How To Fill The Online PMP® Application? (Part 1)

After your registration on the PMI website, you now can look for the application for the PMP® Certification in the myPMI section. Not only do you fill the personal particulars but you also give details about your Project Management Experience which takes a lot of time and effort. This article will walk you through all the key points to fill in the application.


While some aspirants leave the form back until they are thoroughly prepared with a detailed list of experience, it is preferable to submit the application early in your process. The benefits of this action are listed below:

- After your application submission, you are required to sit the PMP® exam within one year. This helps you stay on track with a tangible target to work with during your preparation. Otherwise, you may postpone the PMP® Certification due to their hectic schedule and interrupted focus.

- Once you open the application, the information is stored within 90 days. Therefore, you have that limited amount of time to work on your application and stay focused.

- The application form requires more time and effort than you think. As all the details of your experience must be recorded separately, you have to calculate the time spent on each project management process group. Moreover, you must seek for approval from the supervisors on your role in each documented project for an audit.

- It’s about time you began reviewing the reference titles once you have made up your mind to get the PMP® Certification. Don’t wait until the new version exam content is released and you have to study all over again.
