Is it possible to pay the exam fee at PMI today (or next days), then start self study (via PMP prepcast) and later on (some months) take the exam?
I am asking, because my company does offer me to pay for the self study material and the exam in case the invoice is from July. If the invoice is from a later date I would need to pay by myself.

Hello christian,

I recommend that you check the PMP handbook.

according to the PMP handbook:
- you can do the payment only after you submit your application and the application is reviewed by PMI. the review SLA is 5 days (but usually it is only 1 or 2 days).
- once your payment is completed. you can proceed with scheuling the exam unless you got audited. audit process SLA is 90 days (but usually takes 1 to 2 weeks)
- the examination eligibility period is 1 Year. during this year you can schedule up to 3 exams.

Good Luck.
