After passing the PMI-ACP exam …
[For PMI-ACP® computer based test (CBT)] After 3 hours of finishing and checking the 120 PMI-ACP® exam questions with your full attention, you will be presented with a blank screen after clicking the “End Exam” button. Don’t worry, this is just an indication that the PMI server is checking and computing your score for the PMI-ACP® exam (not a computer error). But before you get your PMI-ACP® exam results, you will be asked to fill in a survey about your PMI-ACP® exam experience and the performance of the exam centre staff.
Afterwards, a congratulation message will appear on the computer screen if you have passed the PMI-ACP® exam. This is the very moment you are “conferred” the PMI-ACP® credential. Clicking the “confirm” button will lead you to another page showing your “proficiency” levels on the domains tested on the PMI-ACP® exam. You can then click the “confirm” button again to log out of the exam session and walk out of the exam room.
The exam centre staff will print you the PMI-ACP® exam report with your overall performance in the exam (pass or fail) proficiency levels for the domains. Do make sure that there is an exam centre stamp on the report to indicate its authenticity. You must keep the exam report till your PMI-ACP® certificate arrives as the only proof of your PMI-ACP® credential. (Though it is rare, there are reported cases that PMI server did not register the exam performance of the candidate and the candidate needed to appeal to PMI to get the PMI-ACP® certificate.)
In around two days’ time, you will also be able to get an email from PMI on your passing the PMI-ACP® exam as below:
