Folks,

I am completing the PMP application and was wondering if my experience of working as a Scrum Master would count towards Project Management experience requirement of 4500 hours?

Thanks for your help !

Hi,

I cannot speak for PMI, so I would say that what matters is your experience in managing projects, regardless of the job title or role you had.
That being said, I would ask this question to PMI: I am sure they will be happy to help you with that. I know that waiting times may be a bit longer via chat or phone, so I would recommend to contact them by e-mail. They typically get back to e-mail requests within a few days.

Hope this helps,

Gabriella
