Finding Seats at Pearson Vue Centers for Your Exam
New PMP Exam Announcement - This page was last updated on 8-10-2023

Training is available for the PMP exam that started 1-2-2021, known mostly as the 2021 PMP Exam in PMI circles, and it's still ongoing. Exams usually run for 3 to 5 years and PMI will provide 6 months advanced announcement prior to any exam change.

Goal Setting whether you are able to take your PMP exam onsite or Online: Pay for your exam appointment as soon as you have been assigned an eligibility period (12 months) to take the PMP Exam. Schedule it as soon as you are able. (If you are audited, provide your details to the PMI organization within 1 to 2 days). Everything is done by email now so it can be faster getting out of audit than it used to be. Every day after class, review what you learned, and do your structured learning. As soon as class ends, finish your Prep Exercises and start doing the practice question, especially the cloned exam questions, and study the Review Checklist.

Finding Exam seats: This is very easy now that you can take the PMP exam online. Note there are personal risks if you have technical issues or you are interrupted during your exam if doing the exam online.

You can search the Pearson Vue centers for online seats or for onsite seats once you have paid for your PMP exam. You will see the link to schedule your exam in your PMI dashboard
