Note for individuals who were enrolled into the PRM program prior to September 2016: If you are still on your PRM certification path and have not yet submitted your experience documentation, you may do so by signing into your PRMIA account, navigating to your PRMIA Certification Profile tab, and uploading your experience documentation. To be eligible for the cross-over exemptions, you must have been a current holder of the programs shown in the table at the time of enrollment into the PRM program.
