PMI-RMP Exam Guidance
To earn your PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)® credential, you need to meet the experience and education requirements, and pass the PMI-RMP® examination, a 115-question, multiple-choice exam.
Regardless of how advanced your project risk management experience or education might be, you should still prepare vigorously for the exam. Successful PMI-RMP candidates typically use multiple study aids — including courses, self-study and study groups — and will spend many hours to prepare, so make sure you leave yourself plenty of preparation time before you take the exam.
