UPDATE 25-March-2020: PearsonVUE is opening some of the test centers from 1-May-2020!
PearsonVue has announced that it will open some of the test centers to take PMP tests from 1-May-2020. Locations include few places in USA.
Considering the COVID related precautions they need to take, the need to maintain distance between two candidates, the test center capacity has practically reduced to 50%.
It is best that you reach out to the PearsonVUE test center that you are planning to take the exam in and find out the earliest time you can book your exam slot with them. Act quickly before the test slots fly away.
Free courses to learn during lock down

Dear friend, I know that you’re getting a lot of messages like this. I did want to take a moment to let you know that we’re thinking of you during these uncertain times.
While PearsonVue is making sure that their test centers are equipped with necessaries and have few additional checks for test takers (regular updates here, check if it is suspended in your country), please take a moment to assess your exam date based on prevailing conditions.
Please share this important update with friend/colleague preparing for PMP exam
Many of you have asked me if PMI will push the new exam date in view of the current situation.
As of now PMI has offered an extension of exam eligibility period for those that have scheduled their exam and cannot take the exam due to the current scenario. Reschedule of exam allowed at no fee penalty.
But as of now no official word about pushing out the new exam dates.
If you reside outside of US and Canada, please call up your local PearsonVUE test center and find out the status.
If you read thus far you belong to one of two buckets –
- You have scheduled your test either in next 30 days or beyond
- You are yet to schedule your exam but definitely planning to take the test before new exam kicks in.
If you belong to bucket #1 you can reschedule your date without paying a penalty fee (PMI has waived it off).
You go ahead schedule for a date after March 16th & before 30th June.
If you belong to bucket #2, you have some time to arrive at a realistic exam date and then go schedule the exam.
If you are yet to submit your application, you can do that any time. I can help with this process to speed up.
One thing you must consider now: when PearsonVUE reopens their doors there will be TONs of people looking to schedule their test. Not just PMP test but all other tests that PearsonVUE conducts.
No matter what it decides in near future, this is not a time to take your foot off the pedal.
As they say, every crisis brings with it some opportunity.
Considering the fact that majority of us are working from home, this is a great opportunity to carve in a couple of study hours every day and prepare for your test much, much better.
We are still a good number of weeks away from the new exam and even by starting now you can pass the exam without rushing into it.
And I am here to help.
