We received interesting news from our European PMI liaison office in Brussels which will be relevant for all applicants for PMI certifications.

evaluation 1516644 640"I am excited to share with you that PMI will soon be launching a new and redesigned format for all of our current certification applications (PMP, CAPM, PgMP, PfMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA, PMI-RMP, and PMI-SP). We are planning to launch during the second half of June 2020.

The changes were made based on user feedback and the new application is designed to be more straightforward and easier for certification candidates to complete. For example:
• We streamlined the application by decreasing the number of screens.
• We are not changing eligibility requirements (years of work experience, hours of training required), but we are changing the format in which applicants submit this information. For example, candidates can now enter months of experience instead of hours, which is much easier to track.
• Where possible, we eliminated free text fields and included more drop-down type selection fields. Being able to select an answer from a drop-down makes it clear to applicants what the question is asking and is thus easier to answer.

We have a “Quick Reference Guide”:


PDF and an online demo that illustrates and previews the changes. For those of you interested in viewing the demo, the video is available via this link: https://bcove.video/372FQha.

For candidates with open/pending applications, we encouraging them to submit applications by 15 June 2020. If they are unable, our team will do their best to transfer over as much of the application data as possible into the new application. We are also directly contacting candidates with open/pending applications.

We are excited to unveil a new era of our certification application process. If you or any candidate in your network have any questions about our application changes, please feel free to contact the Europe Chapter Development Staff or PMI’s Customer Care team.

Best regards,

PMI Chapter Development Team"
