Select Exam Delivery Method & Submit Credential Fee
This requires you to go back into the on-line certification system to: select your examination delivery method, request any special facilities, and submit payment.
Receive Examination Schedule Instructions from PMI
After making your payment, your application will either be randomly selected for PMI's Audit process or you will receive your examination scheduling instructions.
