    One of the most common prerequisites of the PMI certifications is completing a training course before the exam with a minimum contact hours duration. However, that’s not required for the PgMP and the PfMP certifications. However, having a certification of completion after completing the online course content will be rewarding.

This will help you understand the expectations for the exam and the areas of portfolio management that will be covered. (2) Gather Required Documentation: The PfMP exam application requires a significant amount of documentation, including detailed descriptions of your portfolio management experience, references, and other supporting materials. Start gathering these materials early in the process to ensure that you have everything you need to complete the application. (3) Pay Attention to Detail: The PfMP exam application is a detailed and complex document that requires a high level of attention to detail. Be sure to thoroughly review the application before submitting it to ensure that all required information is included and accurate.

    The amount of time it takes for the Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP) application to be approved by the panel can vary depending on a variety of factors, such as the completeness of the application and the workload of the panel members. However, the Project Management Institute (PMI) typically processes PfMP applications within 5-10 business days of receipt. Once your application has been reviewed and approved, you will receive an email notification from PMI with instructions on how to schedule your exam. It is important to note that the exam scheduling process can also take some time, as you may need to find an available testing center and select a date and time that works for you. Overall, it is recommended that you submit your PfMP application well in advance of your desired exam date to allow for any potential delays in the application review process. If you have not received a response from PMI within a few weeks of submitting your application, you can contact PMI customer service to inquire about the status of your application.

    The PfMP certificate is valid for three years. To maintain your PfMP certification, you need to achieve 60 Professional Development Units (PDUs) in a 3-year cycle.

    First, you need to check whether you are eligible to take the PfMP certification exam. For example, a four-year degree, 48 months of project management experience or PMP, and 48 months of portfolio management experience within the last 15 years. Next, you should complete the PfMP Exam Application: Once you have met the eligibility requirements, you must complete the PfMP exam application, which requires you to provide detailed information about your portfolio management experience, references, and other supporting documentation. The application is reviewed by the Project Management Institute (PMI) to ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements. Finally, you need to pass the PfMP certification exam to receive the PfMP certificate.

    If you are a PMI member, you need to pay USD 60 as a renewal fee. For non-PMI members, the renewal fee is USD 150. 

    The PfMP certification exam is quite difficult, even for those who have experience in portfolio management. So, the time it takes to prepare for the exam entirely depends on your prior knowledge and the intensity with which you prepare. If you are dedicated enough, it can take you around two months for complete preparation with the help of PfMP training.

    The PMP, CAPM, and PMI-ACP exams are translated into multiple languages. Please consult the respective certification handbooks for details on specific languages available. Other certification exams are not currently translated, but PMI will notify you when translations are available.
