Hello! I am applying to take the PMP exam. I cover the 4500 hours leading projects in only 27 months (my formal role in the companies was project manager, so I was managing projects full time, covering all 5 areas of knowledge) in only 27 months.
However, in order to comply with the 36 months requirement, I have also added 14 months in which I was part of the Project Management Team (helping the Project Manager with project activities). Not full time doing project management activities, just a few hours a day.

Please can someone tell me if it that will be okay to cover the PMI requirements to sit for the exam?

Thank you very much!

Hi Patricia, I do believe this will be acceptable to meet the 36 months requirement. I also used project team activities (where I was not the project manager, but just a team member) to help fulfill the 36 months requirement on my PMP application, and it was accepted with no problem. Good luck to you!
