Free FastPM Wizard Preview: PMP Hours Calculator

Here’s a free working demo of a small part of the FastPM Wizard™. This part will calculate the months and hours you can claim for a project. You can use it now for free to estimate the number of months and hours you can claim on your PMP application for one of your projects.

Using our tools is much smarter than using a PMP application spreadsheet, template, or sample you found on the Internet because unlike the people who created those, we have a ton of experience fixing rejected PMP applications.

The full FastPM 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. Or get FastPM Concierge™ and we’ll handle everything for you to get your application approved quickly.

Complete the following fields and we will calculate the number of months and estimate the number of hours you can claim on your PMP application. We will email you the results along with some other free PMP application tips.

Your PMP application will need to show a total of 36 months of project experience (or 60 months if you only have a high-school diploma). You will also need to show 4500 hours of leading and directing project activities (or 7500 hours if you only have a high-school diploma).

IMPORTANT: This wizard will not work with the web browser you are currently using because it does not appear to support Javascript. You will need to use a more updated browser that has Javascript enabled and not blocked by any plug-ins or extensions.


Note: If you have problems with this form, try an updated browser without any script-blocking plugins. Or send us a message using the blue chat button on the lower right if you have any issues or questions.

For your PMP application, the Project Title does not need to be the official name of the project. Instead, the Project Title should be recognizable to your project contact and PMI as a one-time professional project and not something that was done repeatedly as part of ongoing operations.
Important:
  • A vague project title can get you rejected because it may look like an administrative or ongoing operations activity. For example, "CRM Migration to Salesforce" might sound like a project to you, but to the PMI reviewer who does not know anything about your project, it may sound like a non-qualifying operations activity. Instead, you can take the objective of the project and turn it into a title. For example, try "Planning and Implementation of CRM Migration to New Salesforce System Project".
  • Do not use an operations-sounding word such as "implement" or "deliver" unless it is part of a project-sounding phrase such as "plan and implement", "design and implement", "plan and deliver", or "design and deliver".
  • Putting the word "Project" at the end can help clarify that it was a project rather than non-qualifying operations. But do not use the plural form "Projects", even if your "Project" was a series of related sub-projects.
