When submitting the PMP application, do I need to include supporting documents?
Application for PMP® Certification is honor-based, meaning that PMI trusts project management professional (PMP®) candidates to submit only truthful information about education and working experiences.
However, in order to ensure the quality of the PMP® Certification, PMI does include a random audit process, this is when PMP® applicants need to submit the supporting documents for:
- the degree / sub-degree education
- working experience
- 35 Contact Hours of project management education
Therefore, when you submit your PMP® application, you will not be asked to attach any supporting documents. Once you receive an audit email / message, you will need to submit copies of the certificate, experience verification forms, etc. through postage to PMI in order to complete your application.
