Recently one of my students crushed her PMP test with an awesome score. And her accomplishment was all the more impressive because she passed while under quite an extra challenge: she was in the 3rd Trimester of her pregnancy!
PMI (Project Management Institute) approves special accommodations for testers on a case-by-case basis. And they do so with full confidentiality — they understand that people want and expect privacy around any special request.
Here are 3 examples:
1) Pregnancy: Expectant mothers taking the various PMI exams: PMP(R), CAPM(R), PgMP(R), etc., are given extra time and extra breaks as needed on their tests.
2) Medical-Related Food Needs: Test-takers with medical issues, such as diabetes, are permitted to bring food and beverages to the test center during their exam.
3) Language Aids: The PMI tests are given in English all around the world. But test-takers who don’t speak English as a first language can request the ability to see translations of the Q&As into the language of their choice, in any of the following 14 supported languages:
- Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.
PLEASE NOTE – 2 caveats for the above:
- Advance Requests – Test Centers will grant special allowances such as above if and only if they were requested in advance by the test-taker as part of his or her application, and if their request was approved in advance by PMI.
- Medical Documentation Required – In cases involving a medical issue, such as an illness, a doctor’s note must be provided to PMI in advance of the test scheduling, and PMI must approve the request.
Any questions on this, please call PMI at (610) 356-4600.
