Applications for the PMP® examination should be made either ‘on-line’ via the PMI website at http://www.pmi.org and follow the links to "Obtaining a Credential" under the "Career Development" menu - or via the paper based application included in the PMP® handbook.
The Application Process
The first step in the application process requires completing the on-line (or paper based) application forms: PMI staff then review your application for completeness.
Once your on-line application has been assessed and determined to be complete, PMI will send you electronic notification to submit payment of the credential fee.
This requires you to go back into the on-line certification system to: select your examination delivery method, request any special facilities, and submit payment.
After making your payment, your application will either be randomly selected for PMI's Audit process or you will receive your examination scheduling instructions.
After receiving your email advising your candidate details, scheduling your examination is straightforward. All eligible candidates can quickly and easily schedule, cancel and reschedule their certification examinations on-line at www.prometric.com/PMI/default.htm.
The Prometric Test Centre in Dublin is at:
Ground Floor, Block 2
Grand Mill Quay, Barrow Street
Please note it is critical that your name used in the application process exactly matches on the government issued identification that you will be presenting to access the testing centre.
Following registration, candidates must take their examination within the twelve-month eligibility period. One extension (or a refund) is possible but costs and conditions apply, details are contained in the Certification Handbook.
*The processing sequence for paper based application is different, payment should be included with your application.
