PMI Certification Exam Centres

All PMI Certification Exams Moving to Pearson VUE

The Project Management Institute (PMI) is moving all her Certification Exams to Pearson VUE in order to provide a better overall exam experience.

Pearson has over 5,000 centers worldwide which makes it easier to find a test centre closer to you. In Nigeria, there are over 35 Test centers in cities like Lagos, Abuja, Jos, Cross River, Kaduna, Kano,  Rivers etc.

PMI has the following Certification Exams:

  • Project Management Professional (PMP)®
  • Program Management Professional (PgMP)®
  • Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP)®
  • Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)®
  • PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)®
  • PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)®
  • PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)®
  • PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP)®

All certification examinations worldwide (except China) will be run through Pearson VUE to provide:

  • Additional test locations
  • Online proctoring for PMI-ACP®and CAPM®
  • Versatility to U.S. Service Members: 

 According to PMI, this is the transition timeline 

There will be a period of overlap where scheduling and testing will be available with both Prometric and Pearson VUE.  Most candidates who have already scheduled their exams will be unaffected by this change.

Important Dates
1 March 2019 PMI-ACP scheduling available at Pearson VUE
1 April 2019 PMI-ACP testing begins at Pearson VUE centers and online proctoring
1 April 2019 Scheduling available at Pearson VUE for PMP®, PgMP®, PfMP®, PMI-PBA®, PMI-SP® and PMI-RMP® exams
30 June 2019 Last date for testing at Prometric centers
1 July 2019 Testing begins at Pearson VUE centers for PMP, PgMP, PfMP, PMI-PBA, PMI-SP and PMI-RMP exams


Next Steps for Candidates Who Already Scheduled through Prometric

Candidates who have already scheduled a test with Prometric on or before 30 June 2019 can keep that appointment and test as planned, regardless of the certification exam. For those candidates who have already scheduled with Prometric on or after 1 July 2019, we will work with Prometric and Pearson VUE to have their test appointment moved to Pearson VUE.

Next Steps for Candidates Who Have Not Scheduled

Candidates who did not yet schedule their exams as of 19 April have been sent Pearson VUE scheduling information to schedule their exams on or after 1 July.

Next Steps for Paper-based Testing (PBT)

We will work with Pearson VUE to transition any candidates that are scheduled for a PBT exam on or after 1 July 2019 to Pearson VUE test center location.
