PMI PMP Application Tips

One of the challenges in becoming a PMP is successfully filling out the PMP application, and the
most important and most time consuming task is fully documenting your project management
related experience. You need to determine right up front if you have the baseline experience
required. The minimum experience in leading and directing project tasks is 3 years/36 months
and 4,500 hours with a bachelor's degree; or 5 years/60 months and 7,500 hours without a
bachelor's degree. Review all PMI requirements for certification contained on their website. Also
do not start your application until you read the PMP Credential Handbook.

If you are fairly confident that you meet the requirements, then you need to start digging up all of
the information on your past Project Management experience and get it into the right format for
the PMI application.

As per the Project Management Professional (PMP) Credential Handbook, applicants need to
document the number of hours that they led or directed project tasks. Applicants need to consider
all of the projects that they have worked on, and identify how many hours they led or directed
project tasks. Keep in mind that in many cases you may not have actually led or directed
however think broadly - if you were independently assigned maintenance and management of
the project schedule for example, then you led that activity for purposes of filling out the
experience section. All hours spent on project tasks on multiple concurrent projects count toward
the total. Think about your experience in terms of the PMI framework, the Project Management
Body of Knowledge, or PMBOK, and become familiar with the PMBOK before filling out the
application so that you can use PMBOK terminology and project roles.

There is an experience verification section on the application to document and report the
experience leading and directing project tasks. Projects need to be documented individually
regardless of the number of projects. Within the total hours of project management experience,
experience in all five process groups is required. However, experience in all five project
management process groups is not required on each and every single project.

Applicants for the PMP need to remember that delivering on projects is all about task
management. Many people assume that because they were not the overall project manager, their
experience does not count. However, think outside the box, and review projects and tasks
through like project manager would. Use the PMBOK framework - specifically the Project
Management Processes: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling, and Closing;
to understand where tasks and efforts fit into the overall process of managing a project.

Steps before filling out the application

1. Capture all work experience of the past 5 years, including dates, regardless of what it was. An
EXCEL spreadsheet is an ideal organizational tool for this.
2. Think in terms of the Project Management Processes: Initiating, Planning, Executing,
Monitoring & Controlling, and Closing. For each of their experiences, record which of these
processes were worked.

3. Discard any experiences where you were clearly not working on any of the 5 Project
Management Processes. Dont try to fit a square peg into a round hole.

4. Make sure each and every one of the 5 Project Management Processes, is represented at least
once across all the identified experience. This is required. If you dont have experience in an area
then try to get it ASAP.

5. Ensure your experience data is ready for computing the number of months and hours of
project management experience, to be compared against the requirement. Hopefully there is
enough experience to meet and actually exceed the requirement, should anything be questioned.
Dont pad and spread hours across your activities just to meet the requirement you are subject
to audit - and any falsification is considered a violation of professional Ethics and will prevent
you from being accepted and could result in your PMI membership being cancelled.

6. Do a short description of each of the experiences, illustrating especially how "leading and
directing project tasks" was taking place within the specified project management processes.

It is acknowledged even by PMI that there are gray lines between work on one project or another
or even one process or another. Applicants need to ensure that any claims they make are truthful
and that they can readily explain them and feel confident with the information they are
providing. A good technique is to try to provide a brief description of the project goals with
information of level of responsibility assigned, the role played, deliverables produced, size of
project, stakeholders, and impact. Each experience should be described a little differently, so try
to avoid copying or repeating descriptions of assignments.

Remember to check grammar, and run a spell check. The following should go without saying but
2 overlapping experiences cannot be considered to each be full time! Applicants also need to
determine the appropriate level of detail for their particular situation. They should feel
comfortable that the reader will find the organization of the information and descriptions of the
project work experience understandable and credible.

The following are examples of experience write ups.

Example 1:
Assigned to Alliance Project to develop new customer business account tracking system.
Defined project scope. Drafted project charter. Evaluated the feasibility of the new project.
Performed stakeholders analysis. Participated in WBS. Developed RAM (Responsibility
Assignment Matrix), and performed a risk analysis. Obtained project plan approval. Developed a
change management plan. Executed action plan. Provided vendor management. Obtained
resources through procurement plan. Provided status reports. Provided lessons learned.
Formalized and obtained final acceptance for the project. Participated in project evaluation.

Example 2:
Assigned to Project Blackjack to develop and build new ground penetrating radar equipment
for oil exploration. Participated in review of the project charter and stakeholders analysis.
Performed WBS, developed RAM, participated in risk analysis, and participated in the
developing schedule. Obtained approval of the action plan. Executed action plan. Provided
periodic status reports. Indicated any issues in the issues log. Participated in a closing meeting.
Provided lessons learned. Participated in project evaluation.

Example 3:
Assigned to 5 year project to overhaul current Student Visa management process. Performed a
logical framework analysis, including a stakeholders analysis. Reviewed project charter and
gained clarification of scope, created RAM, and performed a risk analysis. Obtained approval of
action plan. Executed action plan of VPN setup to third-party vendor. Recorded any issues
during the project in an issues log, and monitored project scope for any out of scope issues.
Provided input of lessons learned, and participated in project evaluation.

Example 4:
Assigned to Project VirTech to integrate and launch a new virtual management framework for
XYZ corporation. Developed Project Charter, Scope document, and took minutes of meetings.
Processed documentation such as system design documents, budget versus actual reports, project
timelines/schedules, performance reviews, team schedules, and policies and procedures for
financial and property management processes.

The following is an example of how to line up your experience verification and allocate your
hours.
