The change to the PMP application made in June 2020 means you are asked to write a project description of at least 200-500 words for each project on your PMP application. Most advice you will find is outdated and based on the previous 550 character project description limit.
The PMI application process really contains just two steps: 1) figuring out how to craft your application in the way that PMI wants; and 2) hoping that the PMI reviewers don’t reject your application because you didn’t figure out Step 1 properly. My best advice is don’t paste stuff into your PMP or PMI-ACP application from some template, spreadsheet, or Internet site.
Getting someone to review your PMP application before you submit it is a waste of time. I don’t waste time reviewing PMP applications because (like a resumé) every application I see has some subtle (or big) problems that can cause the application to be flagged. It is much quicker and easier to regenerate your PMP application using our online tools than to have me try to explain the non-intuitive problems with an existing PMP application.
Here is a working demo to show you a small part of FastPMP Wizard™. Try it for free to estimate the number of months to claim on your PMP application for one of your projects. The full FastPMP Wizard™ will help you with much more including all the other fields in the PMP application that can cause problems with getting your PMP application approved.
Do you want to make your PMP application simpler and easier? Many people worry their PMP application will be a big hassle because of all the people who get rejected. It doesn’t matter if you have a lot of senior project management experience or if you are just getting started. Unless you know how to word your projects using PMI’s PMBOK-speak, your PMP application might be one of the many that get rejected, fail in the audit stage, or require numerous resubmissions.
In your PMP application, you will need to describe your project management experience and qualifications using the language of PMI’s PMBOK. If PMI has concerns with your stated experience or qualifications they will ask you to either: revise your application wording to address their concerns; resubmit your application at a later date after earning more PM experience, or never apply again (if you were dishonest). Once your application is accepted, you pay the exam fee and may be selected for an application audit. If you weren’t audited or you pass the audit, you then have one year to successfully pass the exam.
Using your input, the FastPMP Wizard™ will: guide you safely past all the hidden traps of the PMP application; complete the risky parts of the application for you; and generate your project descriptions, titles, and other parts of the application that look unimportant, but can actually cause major problems. Using FastPMP Wizard™ is much smarter and faster than using a spreadsheet template or trusting the advice of course instructors or other PMPs. Their advice doesn’t always work. But we’ve helped many previously rejected applications get approved and we’re confident we know what works and what doesn’t. In fact, everyone we’ve helped has been approved for their PMP, even when some of them were previously rejected.
