name pmi online registry after pass the pmp exam

As soon as you pass the PMP exam, you will be anxious to see your name on the PMI online certification registry.

PMI registry is a place where PMP credential holders can verify PMP certification online.

I passed two PMI certification exams: the PMP on December 13th, 2010, the PMI-RMP on April 9th, 2012, and I had the same feeling.

In both cases, I received congratulatory emails from PMI within 24 hours, and then I was able to see my certification information in my PMI account and on the PMI online certification registry.

This is what I experienced in 2010 and 2012.

However, as of October 2019, it takes longer to receive the congratulatory email. You will get it within one week, sometimes two. Then your name will show up on the PMI online certification registry.

Many aspirants did not see their names in this PMP registry even after receiving the congratulatory message. It took another week for their names to show up on the PMI certification registry. This causes panic among successful exam takers.

Therefore, you should wait at least one week from the day you receive your congratulatory email, and then you should contact the PMI’s customer care for information on your status. 


It takes one to two weeks for professionals to receive their congratulatory email, and then they can check their status on the PMI registry. In some cases, your name might show up later. This is normal and you should wait at least two weeks from the day you passed the PMP exam. If you still don’t receive the congratulatory email or your name is not showing up on the PMI online registry, contact customer care. Be sure to keep the result report that you were given in the Pearson VUE center safely.
