Eduard - Copy and paste of the process, check the Audit Section


Here -

Your PMI-SP® application has been accepted. You have one year from 31 Mar 2016 to sit for and pass the exam. This time is known as your exam eligibility period and is discussed in detail in your respective handbook.

THE NEXT STEP in the process is to submit payment. Before you can schedule your examination, you need to first pay the fee. Leave enough time to schedule because seating capacity at Prometric Testing Centers is limited and availability is on a first-come-first-serve basis.






Log In and Make Payment


Once you make payment, you will receive a PMI Eligibility ID, which you will need in order to schedule your examination.


PMI'S AUDIT PROCESS:

Please note that PMI randomly selects a number of applications to participate in the audit process, as detailed in the handbook. Once payment is made, you will be notified whether your application has been selected. If selected, you will be advised of the process and provided with a link for more in-depth instructions.

For candidates going through the audit process, the examination eligibility period will be reset to one year following the successful completion of the audit. PgMP® and PfMP® candidates will move to the first evaluation, the application panel review, once they successfully complete the audit.

Please contact the Customer Care Centre in your region if you have questions or concerns.

Thank you,

Hehe - George; do you know anyone who failed an audit? I have been asking this question for years and only once someone knew of 2 people who failed an audit.

I know someone who failed an audit. I don't recall the exact reason, but it had something to do with her job title. The rejection letter stated that she could reapply, but that any future applications would be subject to automatic audit.

This is a tough situation. PMI needs to maintain the integrity of their certifications, but the audit process is grueling. I don't know what the average is, but I had to track down project team members over the span of 6 years. If I knew in advance that I had to do that again, I probably wouldn't bother applying.

Well, dispite I my many certifications and epericience I myself recently failed and audit, and as we speak I'm about to re-schedule the test and hit apply payment.

My wonder is? will I be audited again? I just wanted to know if someone have had this experience before.

This was for the PMI-SP test...

Once you're flagged you're flagged meaning that when you re-apply you will be re-audited

As far as I know, an audit is at random.

I do not understand your situation. If you failed an audit, there must be reasons and once you clear those issues - then your application will be cleared. So I do not understand why you are applying again.

I would be curious if you can share with us the reason you failed an audit.

Hi Mounir - I can say that they indicated some type of duplication of recent requirements of my PMI-RMP reporting hours.

I will share the details, later today...

I agree with Mounir, to my understanding, the audit process is random however, it appears the more times a person applies the greater the probability.

Hi George,

Mounir is completly right; just clarify those duplications and your application will be comitted; no need to apply (and pay) again!

Furthermore, if you just cancel your actual application (which is be audited) and do apply again, PMI may consider this as trying to betray and that could result in a lifelong PMI bann.
So, just do as Rebecca recommended and contact PMI directly.

Markus

I was audited in my application and was successfully approved to write the exam after I submitted all the required documents and attestations. I do recall seeing a stipulation on my audit notification that failing an audit or withdrawing your application will require re-applying and you will be subject to automatic audit.

Well don't know for a fact, but it seems that failing an audit and reaplying you're subject to an automatic audit.

Luckily for me even though I was audited again and after I took my time to comply with every detail requested; I approved the audit the second way around.

With this, I have personally experience all the stages of PMI actions...
Student, Teacher, Certification with no Audit, Certification with an Audit, Certification after failing an Audit and reaplying the Audit.

I can now close this question trail...

Interestingly I can share my lessons learned with my students with facts :)
