Retake Policies

  • If a candidate fails their first (1st) attempt to pass any Project Management Institute (PMI) certification exam, there is a one-day waiting period for retaking the failed exam a second (2nd) time. One day is defined as 24 hours after the exam was first started.
  • If a candidate does not pass the exam the second (2nd) time, the candidate must wait for at least five (5) calendar days from the date of their last attempt to retake the exam a third (3rd) or any subsequent time.
  • This policy applies to both voucher-based and site-license-based Certiport centers.
  • All original vouchers must be used before their expiration dates, without exception.
  • Retake vouchers must be used within 60 days of the initial failed exam. If a retake was purchased, the retake voucher is sent by email after a failed exam.
  • Test results found to violate this retake policy will result in the candidate not being awarded the attempted credential, regardless of the score.

A valid voucher is required for each exam attempt. Do not schedule an exam past the expiration date of the voucher. If the voucher is expired, you must purchase a new voucher.

A Certiport voucher is a 16 character code (XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX). If you purchased a voucher or was issued a voucher from your school or organization, please assign the voucher to your Certiport account, immediately. This ensures the voucher is valid for the exam you are taking. Make sure the name of the voucher correlates to the exam you are taking.

If you purchased a voucher with a retake, the retake is issued ONLY if the exam is failed. A voucher is valid for one exam attempt. A retake is valid for one retake attempt. A retake voucher can only be used for the exam that was not passed. It cannot be used for a different exam.
