Schedule an Exam

Medical office professionals with extensive working knowledge may opt to challenge PMI's certification exam without enrolling in the training program. Candidates may call PMI to make arrangements with PMI to sit for the exam, proctored live in a nearby community. An exam preparation handbook is provided. This handbook is not a study guide, but does provide details about the exam, sample questions and an overview of the material covered on the exam.
