Through different forums I have come across many people who face a lot of issues when it comes to writing their PM experience. PS: I would like to put in a small disclaimer here, that the content described in this blog post is not the ONLY way one can approach the PMP application process. After registering to be a PMI member, your next tough job would be to sit down and go through the PMP application process. I started my PMP application process by listing the entire PM experience I have had for the past 5+ years.
Then for each project title, I came up with 3 to 5 lines describing my involvement within each project.
Through this exercise I had – the start date, the end date, project name, details about my relevant PM experience and a rough estimate of the total hours for that project. You also need to put in information about your boss, manager, peers or any other relevant person who would serve as a contact for each particular project.
Now, once you have the initial layout on the drawing board, it comes down to encompassing your details in the 550 character limit.
One aspect I found very useful was to create a glossary of 15 to 20 PMP related words to define my experience in a professional manner.
For example – One can come up with words like scope, stakeholders, risks, constraints, assumptions, deliverable, closure, archives, status updates etc. While carving this description, identify how much of your experience is applicable across the 5 knowledge areas. Remember, if your application gets selected for an audit, you would be responsible to prove what you wrote under each project’s experience.
So it is of utmost importance that you run these descriptions through your contact who overlooked you during that particular project. I setup a meeting with my contacts and went over each of the 550 characters carefully to gain their buy-in. The idea here is to make your contact person comfortable to sign off on the audit documents (if the needs arise), indicating that they agree to the work that you performed on a particular project.
For now, you need to get hold of these 35 contact hours in order to finish your application and submit it for review. If you have suggestions, tips and ideas to add onto this post, feel free to share them in the comments section below!
I had submitted my application last Monday today is Saturday, 5 business days are over, and haven’t received any updates from PMI regarding my PMP application.
I submitted my application last Monday, 5 business days are over, still application status is under processing.
I was working for an organisation anc had experience in handling migration and transition project, hut from the last two years, i m on my child care leave. I am filling out my PMP application now, I was given a spreadsheet from my boss that easily breaks down the hours. First use an excel sheet to list down titles of each of the project task, activity and any relevant info you think seems to relate to a PM experience. Would the best way to attack this is just have it as one three year project and try to explain it in the 500 letters that many small projects happened each time?
So I have alot of projects but as you know its not common to have only on work but a few hence the project overlap and do the dates .
At the end of the day, you need non-overlapping unique project management experience across the board.
My fear is, the alternative person may not be able to back me up in case of an audit due to lack of information. The PMP application looks like it requires a description for each of the process groups within the PMP.

I just submitted my application and was shocked to find out that there is a character limit of 500 which I wrongly assumed to be the word limit. Awesome… Thanks I will sit with my boss and will let him know what i did in the several projects.

Remember to come up with hours that can be assigned to each of the 5 knowledge areas wherever applicable. Remember, PMI does not require you to have experience in each of these areas for each of your project.
You might be surprised but even reading this post might qualify you for maybe 0.5 contact hour. In summary, you need 35 contact hours, 550 characters worth of PM experience details for each of your projects, legit contact information and buy-in for your performed work and that’s about it! You might also want to review my other post here, which describes my journey on how to prepare to pass PMP on the first attempt! It need not always be your immediate boss but even a peer could have been your lead or supervisor for that project. Not sure why they are taking long, any idea on this situation or to your knowledge, did this happened before? I found that the spreadsheet wasn’t very customizable, and I had trouble entering my numbers, so I created my own spreadsheet.
I was on a project manager position concurrently managing about 5-10 precast concrete projects in my previous employment.
In my current job, I have been on positions of lead estimator, project controls, and contract administration. List down all the big and small project management tasks, activities that you drove and took part on. I am an auditor and go to a different location everyday (across two states) and perform a full inventory. I recently found that the company I worked for was bought by another company and they dont have the staff I worked with anymore. If not, then try and convince the current supervisor by sharing details about your project management experience and requesting him to back you up.

This one day workshop looks at common restricted chemicals, global legislation, specifications, preventing failures and managing risk.
I was working on my other blog post describing my journey of how I went on to become a certified Project Management Professional. This post will give you an overview on how to approach this important step of filling out your PMP application. I would be more than happy to hear back from you in the comments section at the end of this post below. For example – You might be involved only in the Initiating and Closing aspects of one project. I would leave that discussion to a future post I might come up with explaining how to earn your PDUs post PMP certification. There are many such options available online but I found this to be the most popular and recommended ones.
You are all set to hit the submit button and keep your fingers crossed to get approved and accepted. Even though there is a 5 day window for PMI to get back, delays are normal due to the volume of applications they receive. How can i show my gap in application, is it necessary to have last five year experience or i can show my experience before the gap as well. And then within them try and see how you can relate those hours to the areas required for the application. Would they be sufficient or should I take one of those 2-3 day online coursework programs to be on a safer side? Every output is different and it’s with a unique group of individuals everyday that I have to lead, organize, and train. Half way through it I realized that the PMP application process by itself deserves a separate mention. I was one of the many (or few) lucky ones for not being selected for an audit of my PMP application. Also following the content in this post does not ensure your application won’t be selected for an audit.
Remember, unless your PMP application is not reviewed and approved, you cannot schedule the PMP exam date.
Please check your facts before pretending to be a site offering people advice for a serious exam. Then I calculated how many days I had off, as long as the approximate percentage of time I dedicated to each specific project. I have been working as a Program Analyst for Program Management for my current company for 1 year 1 month now.
Within limits I determine how to conduct my audit and inventory and establish the processes and standards. I know the hours should be broken down by process, but I guess I just wanted to make sure the descriptions weren’t needing to be broken down as well. That doesn’t take away from the fact that you had to plan task, and then manage and control their execution. I was originally planning on including the details of how to avoid an audit in the PMP application process in that post.
So be careful in what you write in your application to unnecessarily prolong your process of scheduling the PMP exam.
I subtracted the number of days off I had from total possible working days, then multiplied it by 8 (8 working hours in a day, this may be argumentative since there are other things you need to do at work such as checking emails, meetings, etc. Before that I worked as an Associate Enterprise Project Manager for another company for 5 months.
But then, I figured out that many aspiring PMP candidates might find this information useful as a separate blog post. Prior to that I have done several internships as a Business Analyst, Data Analyst and Business Consultant. I have my Master’s in Management Information Systems where I completed several courses on Project Management, Is my work experience as a PM (mentioned above) sufficient to apply for PMP? There is also a breakdown of tasks per phase, I used that list of tasks to approximate the percentage of time from that phase spent for each task.
