PMP exam on-line

PMI announced on-line PMP exam. The general procedure is the same as a candidate takes at a specialized certification centre.

A candidate follows the same procedures, regulations and steps.

In this post I describe specific features of on-line (or PAJAMA) test.

All you need is a: 

  • computer with a webcam
  • reliable internet connection
  • quiet space where you can spend a few uninterrupted hours: room or private building, isolated from other rooms/locations, quiet where a candidate can keep a door and windows closed during exam

A candidate is required to be video monitored by a live proctor during the exam, the exam is not “on-demand” and you will need to schedule it ahead of time. However, appointments are offered 24/7 so you should be able to find a time that is convenient for your schedule.

Before starting the exam, you will need to complete a self-check-in process. You will be prompted to take a headshot photo, a picture of your identification card/driver’s license, and pictures of your surroundings. Once you begin the exam, you will not be permitted to leave the room or move out of the proctor’s view unless it is during the new built-in 10-minute break. Please note, once your 10-minute break is over, you will not be able to return to the questions from the first section of the exam. Once your 10-minute break is over, your proctor will check you back in and you will finish the second and final part of your exam. If you do not return to the room at the conclusion of your 10-minute break, your exam session will be terminated.

If you have a question during the exam, you can use the “Chat” function at the top of the screen to contact the proctor.

During the check-in process after you have submitted all required photos, the proctor may ask to see your environment, including the walls, floor space and the desktop. This is to ensure you are not within arm’s reach of books, notepads, post-it notes, papers, pens, pencils, or other writing instruments/objects. Additional monitors must be unplugged, and additional computers must be turned off. Items on the wall such as wall art, posters and whiteboards will be inspected. If you are unable to complete this room scan, you are not permitted to proceed further or to take the exam.

During the online exam session, you are not allowed to use exam-specific materials and are not permitted to use scratch paper, erasable whiteboards, a calculator, or any other physical writing objects such as a pen, marker, or pencil.

Instead, the exam has a built-in calculator feature. Whether you are taking the exam online or at a testing center, you will have access to the built-in calculator. You can access it by clicking on calculator icon in the exam screen.

For the online exam, you will also be able to access a built-in whiteboard while taking your online proctored exam. This feature gives candidates the choice to work through items visually by entering notes or drawing shapes. You can access it anytime during the exam by clicking the eraser icon at the top of the screen.

Make sure you have your acceptable identification available so that your identity can be verified. Acceptable forms of identification include: Driver’s license, military ID, national identification card, passport, and alien registration card (green card, permanent resident, and visa). The form must collectively contain both a photo and signature of the test candidate.

The use of mobile phones is prohibited during your exam. Using your phone may result in your exam session being terminated and you should prepare to be unreachable by phone while taking your exams. Mobile phones and other electronic devices must be placed out of arms reach before you begin your exam.

If there is a technical software issue during the exam, the proctor will try to contact you through online chat or Voice over IP (VoIP) using the OnVue software. If the proctor cannot contact you via chat or VoIP, they will try to call you at the phone number you provided during the check-in process. While you are not allowed to have your phone in your immediate workspace during the exam, you are permitted to use your phone in case of a technical issue to access technical support.

If there is a technical software issue, the proctor will try to contact you through online chat or Voice over IP (VoIP) using the OnVue software. If the proctor cannot contact you via chat or VoIP, they will try to call you at the phone number you provided during the check-in process. While you are not allowed to have your phone in your immediate workspace during the exam, you are permitted to use your phone in case of a technical issue to access technical support.

The proctor will work with you to try to resolve the technical issues. Any lost time because of the technical issue cannot be added back into the exam and you will not be compensated for any lost time. If you would like to reschedule, the proctor will direct you to contact the Pearson VUE Call Center with an Incident Report number they provide you. You may not be compensated depending on what technical issue occurred.

Strongly recommended: Per Werngren discusses Virtual Hosting

Reach maximum value due to on-the-edge technologies and p2p cooperation from Mr. Per Werngren – brilliant IT entrepreneur, evangelist, the author of the IAMCP partnering model.

Check out the new series of Thought Leadership Series, featuring Accelerator! Per Werngren discusses about Virtual Hosting and how to Find success beyond operating data centers.

Description: Being a hoster has been a phenomenal business model for many years. The concept was easy: You built a datacenter in your own building or rented colocation space elsewhere, and then you bought hardware and expanded as needed. It was a simple way to earn good money when you did it right with a structured, industrial approach. But times are changing and by becoming a Virtual Hoster you can once again create success and grow your revenue and bottom line profits.

PMP7 standard draft discussion

On January, 15th, PMI(r) published 37 pages of the draft standard PMBOK7.

The main change – and challenge – there are PRINCIPLES instead processes now. PMBOK Standard 7th delivers 12 main project management principles.

Knowledge areas will be described later (probably in electronic form only).

The draft is devoted to soft skills area at 90% level. It seems a bit strange to me ’cause hard skills in the PM area are of high value as well.

The draft presents the “umbrella” approach to project management, including predictive (waterfall), agile and hybrid models. As a part of this approach the project leader role is introduced. This role unites project manager, scrum master and other leadership roles.

Another ‘strange’ item for me is the descriptive approach. Standards are usually predictive. But this one contains descriptions, examples, and references to ‘others”.

The PMP 2020 new version seems to be in line with this draft.
