Hi all,
I just got audited !!!!!
Now while my application was correct, I have one minor issue - as part of the 35 contact hours I have submitted MBA class I did called Basics of corporate finance. In my pmp application I wrote the class name as introduction to finance - the reason is that my studies were in the Hebrew language and I translated the class name from hebrew without looking at my original certificate.

Can this disqualify my application ?

I was sooo lazy not looking at the details ......

Eran,

Well, that is very difficult to say because I cannot estimate how PMI regards these kind of oversights.

Did you only list this course or did you also list the PrepCast?

Eran,

After thinking long and hard about the various options that are open to you now, I have come to the conclusion that your best option would be to directly address this issue with PMI and ask what your next steps should be.

Already did that.
They noted this issue but they cannot guarantee what will happen since the customer care rep is different department than the audit department.

Anyway - today they accepoted my audit material, I just hope that they wont make any problems because of that.

Eran,

Would you mind writing down your short "lessons learned" here in the forum about being audited?

In the beginning you were really worried about it and you seem to have gone through it quickly. So I and the other students would love to hear what you did and how it went.

In that way we can all learn.

Thanks!

No problems.
Here are the main lessons learned:

1)BEFORE you apply make sure that you have documantation to anything you write in the application (I think you convered it somewhere..)
2)If you have documantation not in the english language (like if your diploma is in French, Hebrew, Arabic ....) make sure to verify the exact english translation of your degree and of all the contact hours you put in the application.
3) For documanting your experience - make sure you use the PMI jargon - one director of PMO from my company was rejected because he didn't use good action verbs in his experience documantation. I would suggest to go online and find out how people what did pass the experience verification write.
4) This is the most important one - ALWAYS but ALWAYS write the truth. Don't lie or cheat because if you get caught you won't be able to become PMP EVER !!

Hello Guys,

I am writing this with a painful heart as I was audited and got disqualified.
I am a software test analyst and I put my experience based on that.
I think I got audited and disqualified because of the following issue.
1, Wrong info for the contact person
2, Experienced not on project management.
3, My experience was not detailed enough.

This was a goal I set to achieve this year.

I will like someone to put me through on how to get a refund and what next I can do.

My email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thanks.
