(singing) Oops! I “audit” again

PMI audits a percentage of all its PMP® applications — around 10%. You will know if you are the lucky recipient of an audit right after you pay for your exam. One of two emails will bounce back immediately upon payment. Really. Immediately.

1) “Your PMP® Confirmation Code” — this email contains the string of digits that authorizes you to go to the Prometric testing center website and schedule your PMP® exam. This is good to see.

2) “You have been selected …” — this is the welcome-to-the-audit-queue email. Procedures for the audit are spelled out in the letter. Follow those procedures explicitly.

Do not fret, however. PMI is looking to validate your work experience data. The person(s) listed as your project contacts on the PMP® application are going to be required to review and sign the forms that you download from the PMI website (remember to follow the directions in the email above) stating that they are aware of the work that you are claiming on your application.

The onus is on you, the applicant to:

  • download the forms
  • send the forms to each person listed in your application
  • compile all signed forms and send them to PMI’s Audit Department for review

The good folks at PMI are exceptionally responsive and courteous in handling audit inquiries. The process is not difficult, tedious, or confusing. Simply follow the directions in the email and give PMI a call if you have any questions.

You are great!
