One of the major concern for everyone would be if the online proctored testing option for the PMP as secure as the test center-based options?

PMI places the highest priority on protecting the integrity of the PMP exam and is committed to ensuring that risks associated with online testing are properly addressed.

PMI have implemented several security safeguards, including:

  • A rigorous data forensics program to identify and take action on candidate misconduct and other exam validity issues;
  • AI-enhanced identification authentication and face-to-photo matching during the check-in process;
  • AI-assisted, live remote proctoring, which includes the ability to immediately end a testing session if misconduct is detected

While PMI recognizes that online testing poses unique challenges for security, we remain dedicated to ensuring that the process of earning the PMP designation remains as rigorous and prestigious as it has always been.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1.    Is the Online Exam available for every PMP Candidate?

Almost all PMP candidates can take their exam online. However, PMP online testing is not permitted in certain countries like Japan, Slovenia, and South Korea. Although the candidates in these countries might be able to see the online proctored testing option when they schedule their exam, but, they will be unable to see availability for online testing. PMP candidates in those countries must take their exams in a testing center. 

2.    How can I reschedule to take my exam online after being cancelled due to testing center closures?

Those candidates whose exam were cancelled can reschedule their exams through their online Pearson VUE account. Here, you can choose the online proctor testing option or the traditional center-based testing option. On the off chance that the testing center in your general vicinity have been reestablished, you will have the option to choose an area/location and an accessible seat. Please note, even if testing centers in your area have not been reopened, you will still see the center-based testing option, but it will say there are no seats accessible.

3.   I had scheduled the PMP Exam date, but i would rather take it online. How can i reschedule and choose to take the exam online? Will there be any extra charges for rescheduling?

In your Pearson VUE online account, you can cancel your existing exam date and reschedule choosing the online proctored testing option. PMI is currently waiving exam rescheduling fees.

4.   What is the procedure to schedule for PMP online proctored exam?

Before you can go any further, you have to first submit the application payment. Once the payment is received by the Institute, you will then only be able to schedule your online proctored exam.
