PMP Renewal after 6 Years

Postby bs_pani Thu May 12, 2016 7:47 pm

Hello,

I know its too early to ask this question but curious to know ;)

After the 6 years cycle end can you again renew your PMP by accumulation PDU or do you need to rewrite the exam once again?

I heard some where that once the 6 years cycle is over you need to rewrite the exam once again. Is it true?

Cheers,
Bhabani

So just accumulate PDU based on the new guidelines and renew PMP?

You do not have to re write the exam as long as you keep accumulating PDUs and keep paying renewal fee. I am PMP certified since 2006 myself.

Thanks Saket,

For the clarification. One more question on the same context. My first 3 year cycle is completing on Dec 2017. But I have already extended my PMP till Dec 2020 by accumulating required PDU and paying fees.

So my question is when I can again extend beyond Dec 2020. I think I can only do that during my 2nd 3 year cycle which is from Dec 2017 to Dec 2020. Is my understanding is correct or can I extend before Dec 2017. If that is the case I can use the membership benefits to renew it now.

Btw I believe if you do not renew before PMP expired, then you have to re write the exam although you accumulate the PDU just after expire, may be after couple of days. Please clarify.

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Bhabani

Hey,

As per CCRS of PMI: If you earn more than the required PDUs in your CCR cycle, you may apply a portion of the PDUs to your next cycle. Only PDUs earned in the final year (12 months) of your certification cycle can be applied to a future cycle.

Right now you can report upto 20 PDUs for the next cycle.

Thanks Seema,

For your replay.

My 1st cycle - Dec 2014 to Dec 2017
My 2nd cycle - Dec 2017 to Dec 2020
My 3rd Cycle - Dec 2020 to Dec 2023

My renewal valid till Dec 2020.

So as per your email I can ONLY accumulate 20 PDU for my 3rd cycle from Dec 2020 to Dec 2023 now. And lets say I accumulate 80 PDU from Dec 2019 to Dec 2020 then I can renew my PMP till Dec 2026 considering the old rule of 60 PDU per renewal.

Its bit confusing. Kindly help. Based on that I can renew my PMI membership.

Cheers,
Bhabani

You can report all 60 PDUs in 2019 for the cycle: Dec 2020 to Dec 2023 and 20 PDUs for the next cycle (2023 to 2026)

Right now you can report 20 PDUs for Dec 2020 to Dec 2023
