Getting approved for the PMP certification can be a challenge for military veterans because PMI (Project Management Institute) takes a different approach to evaluate your project experience than you might be used to in the military. Here are the challenges you should expect in getting your military project experience approved for the PMP certification application and some advice on how to quickly pass the PMP application process.
The PMP® application has changed including a new recommendation to include 200 to 500 words for each project description. Here is what is different in the revised PMP application released mid-June 2020. We’ve updated and tested our FastPMP PMP Application tools to ensure you can get your application approved with minimal hassles.
PMP applicants with experience on large construction projects often have problems getting their project experience approved for the PMP certification. This is because the application reviewers at PMI are looking for applicants to have served in the role of a project manager, whereas most people with project management experience in large construction projects play a specialized role in one area rather than leading the entire project.
You might think it is a good idea to search for samples or examples of PMP applications before submitting one. But what worked for another person probably won’t work for you. Instead of trying to copy someone who got their PMP application accepted, you should learn what NOT to do so that you can avoid having your PMP rejected. We’ve learned how from all the people we’ve helped fix their rejected PMP applications.
