Certification FAQs:

Q: I am already a PMP. Is there any benefit in getting this certification?
A: The PMI-RMP credential validates your work experience and knowledge of project risk management, and can compliment your PMP credential. Your career path, current or desired employer, and interest in the subject will determine whether the credential may benefit you.

Q: What are the eligibility requirements to apply for the PMI-RMP credential?
A: Those with a high school diploma, associates degree or the global equivalent must have accrued 4,500+ hours of project risk management work experience within the past 5 consecutive years and obtained 40 hours of risk-management education. Those with a bachelor’s degree or the global equivalent must have accrued 3,000+ hours of project risk management work experience within the past 5 consecutive years and obtained 30 hours of risk-management education.

Q: Do I need to have a PMP credential to apply?
A: No.

Q: How many questions are on the exam, and how much time is given to complete it?
A: The exam consists of 170 questions – 150 of which are scored, and 20 of which are pre-test questions. The length of the exam is 3 hours and 30 minutes, plus a 15 minute tutorial preceding the exam.

Q: Where is the exam administered?
A: Exams are administered at your local Prometric testing center, where you will take a computer-based test. Paper-based tests are reserved for those that live 186.5 miles or greater away from the nearest testing center. To locate a testing center near you, visit prometric.com.

Q: How much does the exam cost?
A: PMI Members pay $520 for the computer-based test and $415 for the paper-based test. Non-PMI Members pay $670 for computer-based test and $565 for the paper-based test.

Q: What is covered in the exam?
A: PMI has provided the exam blueprint, which includes 4 domains. The following are the exam domains and percentage of questions pertaining to that domain: Risk Communication 27%, Risk Analysis 30%, Risk Response Planning 26%, and Risk Governance 17%.

Q: In preparing for the exam, is memorizing the Project Risk Management Knowledge Area of the PMBOK® Guide sufficient?
A: Like the PMP certification exam, the PMI-RMP covers material in greater depth than offered by the Project Risk Management Knowledge Area of the PMBOK® Guide. We recommend either taking a PMI-RMP exam preparation course (whether through the PMP Instructors or another training company) or purchasing the exam preparation courseware available through the PMP Instructors’ online store. This courseware can be used as self-study material, and includes a full-length practice exam.
