Did you know that PMI accommodates test-takers who have medical, language and other needs for their exam?

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.
