    Hi - I answered your question in this thread. As long as you and your reference reach concensus, and as long as your work describes what you did, leading and directing, PMI will be comfortable. They are most comfortable when the hours you estimated fit within expectations of the length of the project and the estimates to the general tasks you described make sense.

    Hi
    I am a PM in technology and the company I worked for 8 years ago as a PM no longer exists because they went into receivership.
    Therefore their contact details no longer exist.

    Can I still put them onto my application?

    Contact PMI - in the front of the handbook, there is an email (customercare@pmi.org), as well as phone numbers. THese folks rock. They regularly work with credential aspirants to determine feasibility of using these hours. A reference is someone in reasonable authority who can stand for you and understands your work; there are options.

    Thanks for your question -

    Hi, started filling the application form. My first experience as Lead is for 20 months. While entering the details, it is seen that full experience is not being considered in the application. Can simplilearn help me on this? Attached a screen shot of the same. it is showing 20 months vs 6 months (Actual vs Qualified).

    How many projects is not a criteria. I would recommend for any estimates working with your reference and agreeing a reasonable analysis of documenting the work. Here are the details:

    • You don't need the job title "Project Manager".
    • You do need to have performed the work of leading and directing project work.
    • Your reference should be comfortable with your estimates and project description.
    • PMI likes to see the 4,500 hours across the last 3-8 years, so you can easily document less than 40 hours per week - that's the idea anyway. It gives you great experience in both operations (organizational repeated work) and project work.
    To see examples of 'leading and directing project work - look to the document "Exam Content Outline" - it shows a great overview of what PMI considers leading the project in short, succinct descriptions (link here).

    I just tried to send my PMP application to getcertified@simplilearn.com for reviewing before submitting it. However, my email is bounced with mail message below.

    "We're writing to let you know that the group you tried to contact (getcertified) may not exist, or you may not have permission to post messages to the group. A few more details on why you weren't able to post:

    * You might have spelled or formatted the group name incorrectly.
    * The owner of the group may have removed this group.
    * You may need to join the group before receiving permission to post.
    * This group may not be open to posting.

    If you have questions related to this or any other Google Group, visit the Help Center at https://support.google.com/a/simplilearn.com/bin/topic.py?topic=25838."
    Is there a different way to send in my application for reviewing?

    Thank you very much!

    Hi,
    I am currently on Maternity leave from Mar 2018 and will be appearing for PMP exam in Dec/Jan before joining office. So there is no work experience from March. So how do I mention this gap in the application?

    No. In fact, PMI expects you to have such gaps; we have times where we are not working on projects. PMI expects we had this experience across the last 3-8 years.

    Thanks Tim. One more question, I have worked on two similar projects in different time duration, so the responsibilities remain same. Hence the description of project responsibilities will be similar in those projects. Hope this is fine.

    PMI will look for the tasks you did, and also how the individual projects reflected the dissimilarities. For instance, they'll throw a red-flag up if they see that the two projects look like a 'copy and paste' exercise. do your diligence, you'll be fine.

    Hello,
    Question 1: At which time of the application process does the payment request appear?
    Question 2: I'm willing to becaome a PMI Member also because its fee is fully recovered on the exam cost. When is the best time to become a PMI Member? Before starting the application or between application submission and the payment request (mentioned at question 1)?
    Question 3: If I save the application process to be continued later will I be able to make any change to it then?

    Thanks
    Marco

    1. payment request is after application is approved and after audit, if you're selected.
    2. In order to maximize account access, pay for membership before paying for your exam, in order to take advantage of discount - just before.
    3. You can go back to the application and update, as well as continue.

    Generally, PMI prefers about 3-8 years. That's enough time to gain experience in both projects and operational work.

    Hi, I've sent my application with few questions to the email address getcertified@simplilearn.com to ask for your kind validation.
    I've received an instant answer to that saying "...the group you tried to contact (getcertified) may not exist....".
    In case you haven't received my email could you give me suggestion on how I could share my application with you?

    Thanks
    Marco
