Hi everyone,

I was wondering if there is any option to extend the PMP eligibility beyond the 1 year time period?

Best regards,

I have never heard that PMI has extended someone's one-year eligibility period. I checked the PMP handbook just now and there is no mention about extensions. Just that "the period is one year", which is repeated several times.

Your best option is to contact PMI by visiting www.pmi.org/about/contact and start a live chat on the right-hand side.
Until Next Time,

I know this is an old post, but in case anyone is still having this issue, I was able to get a 3 month extension by dong a live chat with an agent on the PMI website after logging in. It was very simple, I asked and they said ok and put it through.

Hi Sand,
that's interesting, thank you for sharing. Could you please provide more information?
On what basis did you ask them to extend the PMP eligibility?
