Your questions answered

Is there any pre-reading and how much will I have to study while on the course?

There is no pre-reading, but once the course has started, you will have study and exercises to complete between the sessions. The amount will depend on your familiarity with the concepts, how recently you have been in an education setting, and your particular learning style. To maximise your chances of success in the exam, we recommend at least the same number of hours between each session as the session itself.

 

Should I become a paid-up member of PMI?

It’s not required but we highly recommend it for the member-only savings; learning opportunities; time-saving tools and templates; and local community connections. Make sure you join before paying the exam fee!

 

Will I have to renew the PMI-ACP® certification?

All PMI certifications require that you engage in continuous professional development in order to remain certified.  The requirements for each certification can be found within the Continuing Certification Requirements Handbook.

 

Where can I sit the exam?

PMI's exams are delivered by Pearson Vue which means that you can take your exam in the comfort of your home or office while being monitored by an offsite proctor (learn more here), or if you live in a major centre there may be a testing centre near you for an in-person exam.
