Hi, 

 

Please find response inline - 

1)How much time does it take to fill up the application and prepare experience sheet? - Application preperation and submission does not take more than 3-4 days, submitting application is online process and PMI sends feedback between 48-72 hours. so overall it takes 1.5 weeks to complete the entire application process. 


2)Is it true that new version of PMBOK would be available after July 31st? - I am planning to appear in Aug and have taken PMI membership, still haven't got any notification from them about this.

 
3)How much time does it take to clear if once audit is recieved on teh application? - As per the PMI handbook which you receive once your application is approved, you are given 3 months of period to submit the supporting document requested by PMI, on successful acceptance of documents, audit gets clear within 24- 48 hours time.

2)Is it true that new version of PMBOK would be available after July 31st? No that I am aware of. The PMBOK went from 4th to 5th in 2013. I highly doubt that they will change it in a year. Typically several years before new edition comes out. If you want to know what is new try reading this article on PMBOK 5th. 

Filling application is upto individual. It took me 45 mins to figure out my project and fill the application. However, its been 3 days I havent heard from PMI. As per the PMI hand book and the flowchart in it, it takes 5 days to hear from PMI (whether your application is accepted or auditted) once you submit.

 

I dont PMBOK5 will change after july 31st. What's your source on it, could you please let us know.

These books are going to be a good one of the examiners to have ample preparation. Definitely, it is really something we all have been doing right now. - Paul Savramis
