Hi,

Good day and thanks for asking this question.

When your PMP application gets successful, you are given a one-year period to pass your exam. During this period, you can take up to three attempts. If, unfortunately, you fail three times in this one-year period, you have to wait for one year from the date of the last exam taken.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Regards,

Khurram Hussain, PMP, CSSBB

Khurram, if you fail the exam three times then wait one year, do you need to retake the training course or do you just retake the exam only?

Jim,

You have to retake the exam only because your contact hours never expire. However, you have to also fill in a completely new application, which has to be reviewed, approved & paid for before you can take the exam.
