Almost all PMP candidates can take their exam online. However, online proctored testing is not permitted in Cuba, Iran, Sudan, North Korea, Mainland China, Japan, South Korea, and Slovenia. Candidates in these countries may see the online proctored testing option when they schedule their exam, however, they will be unable to see availability for online testing. Instead, PMP candidates in Japan, South Korea and Slovenia must take their exams in a testing center. PMP candidates in China must take their exam during paper-based exam events that occur four times a year. PMI is not permitted to conduct business in Cuba, Iran, Sudan, and North Korea due to sanctions.
PMI Certification Candidates For all certification exam candidates who are able to proceed with taking your scheduled exam, please consult test center information to your specific location at PearsonVUE’s Coronavirus Update Page as it is updated regularly.
For candidates who already scheduled the exam but are unable to take it due to health restrictions or delayed with training, PMI will offer you to reschedule your exam and will automatically extend your exam eligibility until 18 January 2021. All paid fees will be eligible for a refund and you will be able to reschedule without accruing penalty fees. We are also actively exploring and expediting solutions to offer alternative PMP® exam delivery options, and will share more information as it becomes available.
For all PMP candidates, we are extending access to the current PMP exam until 31 December 2020 and postponing the launch of the new PMP exam until 2 January 2021.
