I have been Java developer for almost 10 years in different companies, although I didn't get project manager title officially, I have managed different size of projects. I want to promote myself to project manager title. In my scenario, do I have PMP Eligibility ? how will PMI verify my eligibility ? I need to provide my project documentations ? how to prove myself ? call each company ? .....

Hi Edward,

You are eligible to appear for PMP examination. The eligibility criteria for PMP is 4500 hours of project assisting or managing experience along with 35 contact hours of training (if you hold a bachelors degree) OR 7500 hours of project assisting or managing experience along with 35 contact hours of training ( if you hold a diploma). Please refer PMP handbook for more information. Here's a link:

If you want to do PMP training through an REP, you can refer to Simplilearn (Global PMI REP 3147). Training also available on Udemy at 75% off for first 20 participants. Here's a link:

Good Luck!!
