This is one question that is asked to us by almost all PMI-RMP® Certified professionals looking to Renew PMI-RMP® Certificate.
Ok – so, during the 3 year period after you have done PMI-RMP® Certification, you can acquire 30 PDUs and Renew PMI-RMP® Certificate anytime.
It is recommended that you start acquiring PDUs early in the 3 years cycle & submit 30 PDUs claim much before your PMI-RMP® Certificate Expiry date to avoid last minute hassle.
Also – you must know that even if you Renew your PMI-RMP® Certification before expiry date – your new PMP® Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) Cycle will start only after current expiry date and will be valid for next three years from your current certification expiration date.
For example: Your PMI-RMP® Certification Renewal Date is 2 May 2023 and you have decided to Renew it on 11th Jan 2023.
Upon successful renewal, Your PMI-RMP® Certification renewal date will be 2 May 2026 (three years from the original renewal date).
To know this you need to recall when you were submitting your PMI-RMP® exam fees to PMI®.
You submitted your PMI-RMP® exam Fees to schedule your exam. You also added PMI® membership for 1 year while submitting your PMP® exam.
Reason was simple…
PMI® offers discount on PMI-RMP® exam for PMI® members.
Simply put, when you became a member your total was USD 520 + USD 139 i.e. $659
So, it is always beneficial to take membership while submitting your PMI-RMP® exam fees.
Now, the other important benefit PMI® membership offers is discount on your PMI-RMP® Renewal.
PMI-RMP® Renewal Fees for Non-Member is USD 150
PMI-RMP® Renewal Fees for Member is USD 60
Most of you always go for the PMI-RMP® renewal in the third year and till then your PMI-RMP® membership is expired. So you again have to take the PMI-RMP® membership in order to get the discounted price.
To understand this let’s consider below two scenarios:
Scenario 1: When you renews the PMI-RMP® certification in 3rd Year
You total cost will include:
So you take the membership again for 1 year which costs $139
Now, your PMI® renewal fee after membership becomes $60
Your Total Cost Becomes:
Cost of your 30 PDUs + $139 + $60
Scenario 2: When you renews the PMI-RMP® certification in 1st Year
You total cost will include:
Cost of 30 PDUs from PMI® Authorized Training Partner
PMI® Renewal Fees which is $60 (because your membership is still active)
Your Total Cost Becomes:
Cost of your 30 PDUs + $60
You actually end up saving $139 in your PMI-RMP® Renewal when you renew it in the first year.
If you cleared your PMI-RMP® exam on June 28, 2021 - Your certification will expire on June 28, 2023
If you take advantage by renewing it in the first year let’s say Dec, 10, 2021 - Your certification will expire on June 28, 2026
It means you save good amount of money and you do not need to worry about your certificate for next 6 years. So it is wise to renew your PMI-RMP® certification in the very first year and save money until and unless you have no plans of renewing your PMI-RMP® certification in future which is very rare because it took a lot of hard work and money to earn it. Nobody will like to just let it expire.
