Effective July 1, 2019, all PMI certification tests will be proctored by Pearson VUE instead of Prometric. Key dates to note as PMI transitions to their new testing vendor:

  • If you want to take your PMI test before June 30, you will need to schedule your exam before April 19. Those tests taken before June 30 will be at a Prometric site.
  • If you schedule your exam after April 19, the soonest you will be able to take your exam will be July 1. Tests taken on or after July 1 will be administered at a Pearson VUE site.

Other things to note:

  • The PMI-ACP and CAPM exams are already being handled by Pearson VUE.
  • The CAPM is only proctored remotely, and the PMI-ACP may be taken at a Pearson VUE site or proctored remotely. (For insights into the remote-proctored exam experience, check out this video.)
  • Cancellation and reschedule policy will remain unchanged.
  • All PMI test takers should expect to be given a white board and dry erase marker instead of paper and pencil at Pearson VUE testing centers. Previously, PMP, PMI-PBA and other PMI testers were typically provided with pencil and paper when testing.
