PMP Exam Fees – Everything You Need to Know About PMI Fees

When you write your memoirs, will your career show the projects you managed were completed using best practices? For current project managers, and aspiring ones, obtaining a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification provides you with more opportunities, more connections, and more money. The PMP certification is known the world over and no matter the industry that you serve, construction, information technology, manufacturing, the PMP is sought after by employers and their clients. PMI, the Project Management Institute is the most recognized PMP certification internationally and their ethical standards and governance within the project management field sets the standard.

While the advantages are clear, the expenses incurred must also be explored. So, whether you are working in a company where you have taken on the duties of a project manager, or you are coming out of college looking for a position, obtaining your PMP certification is a cost that needs to be reviewed.

PMP certification is a requirement in more positions every day. Taking time to do a little cost analysis on acquiring it is the prologue to your autobiography.

Criteria: Various fees for PMP certification

1.   PMI Members

2.   PMI Membership holder’s fees

3.   Non-Member PMP fees

4.   PMP examination re-attempt fees

5.   PMP Certification renewal.

By exploring each of the criteria, you can begin your cost breakdown to determine which structure suits your situation. The specifics of cancellation as well as any refund process will also be reviewed, expanding on the procedure for changing or canceling your exam.

PMP Exam Fee Descriptions

You have met the requirements, educational and experience. You have completed your 35 contact hours. You’ve submitted your documents and your application and PMI has approved you to sit for the PMP exam. At this point you have one year to schedule and pass the exam.

As with your driver’s test, if you don’t succeed, you can try and try again. In that year you can take your exam up to three times. Each time you will be charged a PMP exam retake fee to sit for the exam, however, the re-attempt fees are discounted.

This table breaks down the fees for the initial exam by PMI membership holders and those who have opted out of paying for membership.

PMI membership provides you with a reduction in your fees as well as a variety of information for your continued journey into the field of project management. PMI’s library includes the PMBOK, and the cost of membership is negated when it comes time to pay the exam fees.

Membership fees for PMI

Membership has its privileges, and a PMI membership is no exception. The standard fee is $129. This allows you to pay the $405 exam fee and a $10 membership application fee to sit for the exam. While you may think that’s only an $11 difference to the non-member fee, we believe the benefits far out way any reservations you may have.

Note

Normal

$129

Plus, one-time US $10 application fee

Student

$32

Retiree

$65

Full time college or university students that have U.S. accreditation or the equivalent are eligible for the $32 PMI Student Membership. Note that if your course of study involves Project Management Training, your college or university may offer Group Student Memberships, and if they don’t you might want to bring it up to the instructors.

Remaining in touch and active in the field that you worked in for your entire life is easier with a PMI Retiree Membership. If you have been a PMI member for five years in good standing and have retired, your annual fee will reduce to $65 a year.

PMI will require documentation in order to approve your reduced fees in order to continue their exacting standards of ethics and best practices.

PMI Annual Membership Renewal fees:

Working Project Managers, and current PMI Membership holders will notice a reduction in their annual fee when they renew their membership. Each year after you join your renewal fee currently stands at $119. If your membership is not in good standing, if it’s expired, you will be charged the original $129 fee as well as the $10 application fee.

Remembering membership has its privileges, you might be wondering what some of them are, other than the lower fees for the exam. The following list is from PMI’s website showing you those privileges. Be part of the largest PM community

Other considerations for taking PMP exam

Beyond the fiduciary considerations, other costs must also be considered. The 35 contact hours training costs, depend on which type of training you have chosen, in person, online, tutoring, self-paced, boot camp, etc., all cost accordingly. But time is also a consideration.

There is the time it takes to prepare your documentation. The time it takes to complete the PMP training. Time must be taken out to study, and time for the exam itself. If you need to retake the exam that can double or triple the study time and exam time. Budgeting your time is as important as budgeting your money.

The advantages of PMI membership for aspiring PMP certificate holders

If you are heading towards certification, the PMI membership is a great place to start. The cost benefits alone should make it an easy decision. However, if you need more convincing, continue reading.

As we stated there is the cost. The membership lowers your exam fees and any subsequent fees, re-attempts, and renewals.

It provides you with access to the Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK) as well as other publications, articles, tools, and templates for your study as well as your job.

Membership offers you the chance to network with your colleagues, locally and online and

Membership provides you with the opportunity to obtain other certifications and maintain the Professional Development Units (PDUs) that you need to keep your membership in good standing.

PMP Certification Renewal Costs

Once you have your PMP certificate you will be required to keep it in good standing. There are steps that PMI has you follow to do every three years.

·        During the three years before each renewal, you need to complete and report 60 Professional Development Units (PDU). Courses available that meet PMI standards are on their website as well as additional items that can count towards this requirement.

·        There is a PMP certificate renewal application that must be completed in its entirety.

·        There is a renewal fee after PMI has confirmed that you have met the above requirements.

Renewal Fees for PMP Certification

As with the original certification, the PMP renewal fees are different if you are a member in good standing. PMI membership holders pay $90 less than non-members. Another privilege of membership.

PDU requirements for PMP Renewal:

Most professionals are attending courses and consistently staying up to date to improve their skills in project management. Professional Development Units are a way to measure that improvement.

PMI recognizes a variety of activities that count as PDUs. These fall into two classifications:

·        Education – improving your technical, leadership, and business management skills. This can count towards a minimum of 35 hours of your PDU requirements.

·         Paying it forward – using your expertise and abilities to help improve the field of project management. This can count towards a maximum of 25 hours of your PDU requirements.

In total, you must complete 60 certified PDUs in order to apply for renewal of your PMP certificate.

PMI uses the Talent Triangle. The triangle shows what PMI considers as the “ideal skill set” combination for renewal of your certificate.

  • Technical Project Management encompasses the knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary in relation to Projects, Programs, and Portfolio Management.
  • Leadership again looks at knowledge, skills, and behaviors, but is specifically focused on the leadership qualities that have helped the profession and the organization obtain its goals.
  • Finally, Strategic and Business Management demonstrates the knowledge and expertise that strengthens the operations of the industry or organization in order to deliver the best results.

Fees for Rescheduling or Canceling the PMP Certification Exam

Depending on the situation, you may need to cancel or reschedule your PMP exam. The sooner you know the better chance you have to change the appointment. Be aware, there may be a cost.

If you reschedule or cancel the exam more than 30 days before, you won’t be charged a fee. If you reschedule or cancel more than 2 days before but less than 30, you will be charged $70. Two days or less prior to your originally scheduled exam, your entire exam fee will be forfeited.

Rescheduling or canceling the exam may not be avoidable, but the difference in cost to cancel or re-schedule is up front and should be evaluated. If it is under the 30 days, you may want to see if you can find a way to go ahead with your exam appointment.

Canceling or Rescheduling the Computer Based Testing (CBT) PMP Exam Appointment

If you have scheduled your appointment online through PMI’s website, pmi.org. As with the exam, you will be redirected to the Pearson VUE website where you can see your appointment date and reschedule or cancel accordingly.

Canceling or Rescheduling the Paper Based Testing (PBT) PMP Exam Appointment

In order to cancel or reschedule the PMP exam appointment for a paper-based exam, you must send an e-mail to pbtexams@pmi.org. If you do this no later than 35 calendar days prior to the exam you should be able to cancel or reschedule without incurring an additional fee. Make sure to include your name, your PMI Identification Number, your group ID number, and the location of the scheduled appointment in your email. The identification number and group ID numbers can be found in the confirmation letter you received when you originally scheduled your exam.

Criteria to Receive a Refund for PMP Exam Fees

There are circumstances where you can have part of your exam fee refunded. In certain circumstances, you can get a refund for the PMP exam fees you have paid. We will see these now.

  • PMP applications that were audited and failed that audit will receive a partial refund. PMI will deduct $100 from your PMP exam fees and refund the rest.
  • PMP applicants that have passed the audit or weren’t selected for audit but have been unable to take the exam can request PMI to deduct $100 and refund the rest. This is for applicants that were unable to schedule the exam prior to one month before the expiration date.
  • In the event that you have failed to take the exam by the eligibility expiration date, PMI will not refund the exam fees. The eligibility date is usually set one year after the approval date of your application.
  • In the event of failure of the PMP exam, fees are not refundable through PMI.
  • In the event that you have an appointment for the exam and do not attend you will relinquish your fees with no refund from PMI.

Extenuating circumstances:

There are instances that are unavoidable, and PMI understands that there are often extenuating circumstances which may require you to reschedule or cancel your appointment.

PMI considers the following as extenuating circumstances:

  • Medical Emergency
  • Military Deployment
  • Death in Immediate Family
  • Illness in Immediate Family or
  • Natural Disasters.

PMI doesn’t consider these when the circumstances are work-related.

Contact PMI’s Customer Care Department at customercare@pmi.org. Make sure to provide them with your name, date and location of the exam, and PMI Identification Number, along with any documentation that supports your reasons for canceling or rescheduling in order to obtain a refund without penalty.

Paying for the PMP Exam Fee

The PMP exam fee can be paid by credit card, check, money order, or wire transfer. For credit cards PMI has an online payment portal and this is the quickest way to ensure your payment is received. You can also send your credit card information, check, money order, or wire transfer information through snail mail. We recommend sending your information and payment certified or priority so that you have the ability to track the parcel. You can always contact PMI’s Customer care at customercare@pmi.org for more details.

For those of you that are currently working within an organization, contact your human resources department to see if there is any allowance for reimbursement of coursework and/or fees.

The Final Chapter?

The exam is over. The money’s been paid, and the stories will begin to pile up. You are now a member of a select group of certified professionals. Congratulations, and keep the ball rolling!

This course had good reviews online from previous clients so I decided to try this one. Relevant course materials and great timed practice tests allowed me to ace the actual certification exam on my first attempt. I highly recommend this course.

This is a great tool to support the PMBOK Guide. Quizzes, presentations, and videos help break down the massive amount of information that comes with the PMBOK, truly helping you prepare for the actual exam. Great way to get your 35 hours classroom credit!

- Penney

---

I think the course is good. I wouldn't mind a few more videos and audible in the trainings. I do a lot do reading. I bought the PMBOK book on the side and sometimes have trouble connect the class to the PMBOK book. I do enjoy your format. I am learning. Personally I need buckle down and spend more time on it.

- Anthony

Brain Sensei helped me to prepare for and pass the PMP exam on the first try. I used many exam simulators and this one was by far the most similar to the exam. Im so happy I found Brain Sensei and chose to prepare with them!

- Alex Jane

I am a refugee from Ukraine. I applied to Brain Sensei with a request to provide me with a scholarship so that I could prove my skills and abilities for Europe where I am now due to the invasion of my country. The Brain Sensei team promptly responded to my request and provided the opportunity to study in their PMP course. I am very grateful to the Brain Sensei team and am happy to start learning! Thank you very much!

I really enjoyed the Brain Sensei self learning course as well as the virtual course with the instructor. I was able to pass the PMP with above target ratings for every section. I am so pleased with how easy and efficient the courses were to navigate, and how simply the PMI approach was placed into every day situations. I would highly recommend this course to everyone wanting to either freshen up on their Project skills or to master the PMP.

Hi Folks, good course there. More info/exercises on EV and formulas would be really helpful. Thank you very much.

- Vasil

---

I passed my test on the first try! Excellent learning tool. There were some questions that I found to be confusing or contradictory with the answers, so I sent those to the Brain Sensei team. They always responded quickly, even on the weekend! Some adjustments are being made because of my feedback. I appreciate their care and that they take the time to support during the studying period.

- Pamla Kendrick

---

Perfect program for me. I did it at my own pace, and passed the exam with flying colors.

- Mary Garnett

---

I'm very satisfied with the Brain Sensei PMP Exam Preparation Course. All 8 Modules are very well structured and detailed. This course is best for those who would like to learn at their own pace. Of course, lots of studying is needed (PMBOOK and other agile-related books and material). The customer service team is exceptional, very supportive. I had an immediate response to whatever I needed.

- PS

This is a great course!!!!

- Darrius Cooley

---

Great training tool! I learned a lot and realized how much training I needed to learn. Now to take my exam!

- Michelle

---

Engaging, self-pacing course that contains accurate content. Prepared me well for the PMP exam which I passed on my first attempt. This course is best for those who would like to learn at their own pace. For example, I completed it over the span of 2 and a half months.

- Matthew

---

The course was thorough and the practice exams enhanced my learning. However, I am having a hard time receiving my PDU credit for taking the course.

The story approach was good but I feel like I wasn't ready for some of the questions on the site.

- Barbara

very good but needs to be more updated

- Mohmed kheir

---

I loved the PMP prep course and the level of learning from this. I am hoping this learning to be translated in PMP certification as well :) Another thing to mention is the very responsive support and quickest issue resolution. I had an issue with subscription expiry and they resolved it very swiftly. Thanks!

- Kamal

---

phenomenal training opportunity that provides a variety of learning styles for all.

- Anastasia

---

Great way to prepare for the PMP Exam!

- Matthew

---

Excellent test prep for the exam, though some more practice tests on agile would be beneficial

- eric

---

It is often hard to figure out what the right answer was on a quiz or practice exam. Frequently, the correct answer is buried in a lot of text about what options are wrong.

- James

---

The content was spot on and I am much more confident in understanding the processes and how everything works together now. (The) course is great; however, the customer service team is Exceptional! Very responsive and thorough, and at all times; and when I had some technical difficulties (or questions) they stuck with me through resolution. Highly recommended program and company.

- Daniel R

Great customer support. Wish more Agile modules were available.

The Course documents should remain open for longer than 6 months, given that PMI gives you 365 days to prepare for exam. Also, the option to extend visibility for the course documents, costs almost a 5th of the course, but opens up the docs for just 30 more days. Propose to extend this to 90 days at the very least.

- Vasily

---

I'm very satisfied with the Brain Sensei PMP Exam Preparation Course. All 8 Modules are very well structured and detailed. I believe that practice exams included in the course helped me a lot with the preparation for my PMP Exam. I appreciate Brain Sensei for their amazing course and for the awesome service. They responded to all my requests immediately. Thanks. Highly recommended.

- Helen Borimsky

---

The format of the prep-course is great overall and a great alternative to reading the PMBOK. Barring a few minor glitches here and there, the flow of information ensures that concepts are well understood not only from the point of examination but to the point of application in day to day professional activities. Explanations provided in the answers of prep exams (apart from the 1st one) are also a key to understanding the thought process to be applied. With the focus being on Agile approaches from 2021, the information in the course seemed adequate to cover the concepts. All the Best to all aspirants.

Studied BrainSensei for 11 days and passed. Succinct and highly informational chapters. The 4 practice exams are marginally more difficult then the PMP. Borderline impossible to fail the PMP if you pass this course.

- Sarmad(Sam)

Great course! They break down all concepts in a very clear and interactive way, that doesn't put you to sleep. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to pass the PMP exam with flying colors.

Your course, quizzes at the end of most modules and practice exams truly challenged me. I definitely derived the value and knowledge I was looking for in preparation for taking the PMP Certification Test. In particular, I appreciated the explanations that popped-up in the tests after an answer was submitted - very educational and helpful to my learning/understanding the material and concepts better. Some areas that could be improved (and some of this is nit-picking) include: * Some of the grammar and overall sentence structures, particularly in the latest set of practice exams, needs to be cleaned-up. Some were missing 'of', 'for, or had an extra 'an' in the narrative - got confusing at times. * In the practice exams, I'd like to see shorter sentences rather than the flurry of 'and' and 'or' conjunctions that made reading the sentences go on forever (had to read them multiple times to truly understand their meaning). That said, I enjoyed the overall online course taking experience and thank you for accommodating my requested time extensions. Best regards, Scott Conn

Liked it. Need access for longer though.

- Jerome

What I like best about Brain Sensei is the interactive nature of the course. I think this material would be numbing if delivered as simple lectures with slides. This method is an improvement on that. On the other hand, an in-person course, while more expensive, would likely be even more useful if you have the funds and the time. I haven't taken the PMP exam yet, so I can't comment on how useful the practice tests are.

- James

Great

- Yennyfer

The Brain Sensei PMP program is a wonderful program that condenses the PMBOK into digestible and retainable bites leveraging the power of story telling. If you're looking for a program that will get you your credit hours but also help establish a foundation of PMI knowledge this is the program for you!

- Kenny Dalen

---

Passed first attempt

- Lee

---

Truly the best course in town if you wish to pass the PMP exam on the first try. I love the idea of playing the role of the samurai and practice your project management skill in her shoes. And not to forget, the generous amount of practice exam gave me just the right dose of confidence before taking the real one. Highly recommended

- Minh Vo

---

The course was great, though I found a lot of parts hard to comprehend. I feel a lot more prepared and better skilled to manage projects in my career. Thanks, Brain Sensei.

- Jill Finkelstein

The BrainSensei PMP preparation course provided me with all the material required to be ready for the exam. It is well structured, explains the concepts clearly, and most importantly, provides ample training questions through the four mock exams and assessment questions at the end of each module. I passed the exam with Above Target in all sections on the first attempt.

- Gael Riethmuller

---

Overall I really liked this learning course. It was very helpful and allowed me to be well prepared for the exam. The 2nd and 3rd practice exam are great to give you real example questions and help prepare you for what to expect. BrainSensei's customer service was the best. I had to delay taking my test due to COVID and they extended my membership for free. They went above and beyond my expectation which was great. Only changes I would recommend is to add 1 or 2 more practice exams like the 2nd and 3rd exam and get rid of the agile practice exam. This is not a real focus of the test and therefore is not really applicable in my opinion.

- Ronnie

---

BrainSensei developed a great learning method to prepare for the PMP certification exam. Their customer service is always very professional, fast, spot on and dedicated to your success. I recommend them.

- G. Buchs

---

I've sent several emails to BrainSensei (one of them not so nice, but the rest were okay) and the team has always been so polite in answering the questions. I'm a very straight-forward person and don't like the PMI-ism type questions because they seem like 'gotchas' or traps, and this is not how I manage my team. I took the Master of Project course (which was garbage) then failed the PMP exam. Throughout the PMP exam I felt so out of touch. Even with the first practice exam on BrainSensei I felt out of place, but I am not getting the hang of things. I hope to pass the exam on the second attempt! The brain sensei experience has been *miles* ahead of the Master of Project garbage. Brain Sensei should be proud of both their product and of their team! I love getting replies to my concerns so quickly. Nice work :) !!!

This is by far the best way to prepare yourself for the PMP exam. The material is presented in a unique and engaging way that makes learning it easy and also fun! The company behind this course is also very professional and responsive. Keep up the great work!

- Amir Afifi

I have studied with other programs and I didn’t feel prepared. After a short time with Brain Sensei, I had the confidence to succeed on exam day, which I did on the first try after studying with Brain Sensei. It was worth every penny.

- Andrew Grady

Great program

- Ashley

Course is made for people who are already grounded in the material, not for someone that needs all the basics. Was budget friendly and OK content.

Brain Sensei is great tool to have in the study arsenal while preparing for the PMP exam.

I really enjoyed the modules and content offered by Brain Sensei! I passed the PMP Exam on the first try and would recommend this course to anyone who is looking for a great PMP Exam Prep.

- Delfin Gallegos

Overall layout is good, but there are some quality issues. Progress isn't always saved across all devices and progress gets lost. Some small spelling mistakes. I loved the practical storyline...

Absolutely Fantastic learning software. Highly recommend it! Very well thought out and creative. Really enjoyed my study time. Excellent mock tests and mock exams. So so helpful. Thank you Brain Sensei Team for being part of my PMP journey!

- Tracy

Need improvement in presenting more relevant real exam type questions. The practice exams are too simple and easy and do not prepare you for the real exam. Otherwise, good concept presenting material

- Amir

---

The prep materials provided plenty of content which prepared me well for the PMP exam. The questions were packed with information.

- Cameron

Teaches the PMP in a solid manner, some things you need to know as a potential consumer: -The Samurai backstory is extremely short, and didn’t really assist me with recall in any in-depth way. It only gave broad brush-strokes as to what each phase entailed. -MOST of what was on the test was covered in the lessons, however if I had zero real prior PM knowledge prior to the test, I would have failed. -The first practice test forces you, as the student to actually read into the PMBOK, which was a benefit in the long run as it assisted me with quickly referencing what I needed to find. -The course will likely cover wave tops and subjects, forcing me to self-study for a week before my test... not a bad deal all things considered. -Brain Sensei’s course has incorporated Agile into one of their practice tests, and this test IS mandatory. This may seem strange, and I didn’t get a satisfactory reason why I needed to take a purely Agile test when I only wanted to take the PMP, for anyone else in this scenario, this is the reason: In June, PMI is revamping the PMP test to include Agile as a significant portion of the PMP. Brain Sensei is just ahead of the curve trying to get students prepared... fret not. Their customer service is extremely responsive and does take care of their members. My program had a couple bugs, and the customer service fixed my problems within 24 hours. All in all... it was absolutely worth the money for me.

- Kevin

I am very impressed with this learning system. The content is laid out in a way that will make any learner understand all the process groups and ITTOs in order to understand Project management and be equipped to excel in the test. The learning system is engaging and fun at the same time. It's very different than other learning material which is composed mostly of videos. Some improvements are needed, but in my opinion Brain Sensei is great value for money

At first, I was attracted to Brain Sensei training for their original learning program using a Samurai's story. And indeed it made the whole learning experience funnier - so easier. I felt like the Samurai. Then, I was amazed by The Brain Sensei Team's reactivity and help when I reached out through contact@brainsensei.com Their support was constantly reliable and efficient. I appreciated their professionalism and didn't feel on my own. At last, the course and the practice exams proved to be efficient since I passed the PMP exam - with 'Above Targe't in all Domains. So thank you so much Brain Sensei Team !! Charlene

- Charlene LU

Overall very good. Got stuck a few times trying to find resources which I should have downloaded the before starting the program. Customer service has been great.

- Jonathan Williams

SO far I am thoroughly enjoying the Brain Sensei PMP prep course. I have taken a Project management class as a part of my degree which I recently completed and project management has always interested me. I find the course to be educational and easy to follow. I am grateful that this course has been designed in such a way that is simple to understand all of the complexities in project management and that allows me to study at my own pace.

- Eric Browne

The content is good and easy to understand

- Glenn

This review is based on completing all course work through module 102. The story and interactive nature of the course are helpful for learning and relating the material. It would be nice to have the page numbers to the PMBOK guide where references are made to it. Other information that will be helpful, are the explanations to the practice questions at the end of each module. These are provided only after immediately answering the questions. Having these available in the score summary from the 'history' tab will be helpful to refresh why the answer is correct and other options are not.

- Rohan Punit

---

Overall I would rate this course an 8/10. I liked how there were exams towards the end of every module and I felt that it was very useful having it laid out in different scenarios. I rate it only an 8/10 as I had some glitch/software issues and lost my progress resulting in me having to re-do modules/exams multiple times. All in all, that was maybe useful in the end as it was a way for me study or 're-learn' the course material. Thank you!

- Nikki Cordy

---

Clear and precise explanations of how things work. I was never lost navigating the course.

- Gary Nicol

---

A smart approach to present the information which makes it fun and engaging while at the same time preparing for the PMP exam. Brain Sensei differentiates itself from other PMP exam preps in that it delivers the knowledge through the use of storytelling technique. I recommend this course because it will help you pass your PMP exam on the first try.

Excellent course for preparing for the PMP exam in a fun and engaging way! The practice questions resemble the actual questions on the exam making it a completely worthwhile experience.

I passed the PMP exam after taking Brain Sensei's Online PMP Certification Exam Prep. The practice exam questions were so similar to the questions that appeared on the exam. On exam day, when I sat down to take the test and started running through the questions I felt so relieved! The practice exams are also timed so you get more comfortable with the exam experience and feel better prepared when you sit down to take the test. The other differentiator was the video content throughout the modules. The concepts are taught through a story of a young samurai defending her kingdom. This will probably be the only PMP prep course where you can learn all the knowledge areas and feudal Japan at the same time. I'd recommend this course not just because of the videos but because it helped me pass my exam on the first try.

Good course, but a few grammatical errors with how some questions were worded.

Loved the unique approach and it still had all the info I'd expect from a full PMP exam prep course. Very responsive on questions too.
