My name is Mehmet and I am Construction PM.Last year I have attempted two times for PMP exams , but failed because of over-workload site construction conditions and not having enough time to prepare well.
My eligibility expires on 20 Jan 2015 and I have one more attempt right for the PMP exam.
However,according to my searches, I am thinking that ,I prefer to choose the way let my PMP application expire ,applying again and give myself another year and 3 fresh attempts.
At this point I would like to share your recommendations and experiences related to my questions which are:
1-What will be the best time for application ,since my eligibility expires on 20 Jan 2015 (Right after this day or is there any defined time period for aplication?)
2-Since I do not loose my eligibilty and waiting one more year, I would like to learn true procedure for this special case.
Looking forward to your response and I will be grateful for your valuable recommendations .
You can let your eligibility expire and then re-apply on January 21st for the PMP exam. This means that you start at zero and have to input everything again. You also have to pay the PMP application fee again.
However... to be on the safe side I have written to PMI about this and asked for their guidance as well. I will let you know here what their response is.
Does anyone else have experience with this particular approach/case of letting the application expire and then re-applying?
