You may not find every PMP certified person’s name on the PMI certification registry. There are two reasons for that:
- PMI takes some time to update the information on the registry after you pass the exam. PMI usually updates the information about new PMPs within 5 business days but it can take up to 4 weeks also. So if you clear the exam and search your name, it may not show up immediately.
- The disclosure of information on the PMI website is voluntary. It is not a mandatory requirement. If you want you can choose to withhold your credentials information. You can instruct PMI not to display them on the certification registry.
