To all,
Due to COVID and it’s impact on testing dates, is the testing interval for testing attempts per year the same at 3 attempts with 4 months between each attempt?

My application was approved two days before the stay-at-home orders started. I am unable to obtain a testing date until August 21. A four month interval would place me into the new test in 2021 due to the holidays. This would mean I would only receive one attempt.

Let me know if my thinking is correct.
Thanks. Deanna

Hi Deanna.

That is a very good question, COVID 19 has brought in some very interesting scenarios that only PMI can address. I would suggest that you post your question directly to PMI and paste their answer here so that others can benefit from it. I wish you all the best in your exam, may you pass on your very first attempt.
