    I am a PMP and I have found someone that is claiming they are a PMP and after a quick search on the registry I found no one matching this individual, as suspected. How do we report?

      Hello Ryan,

      Please make sure you have thoroughly search for the individual. As some times, you don’t get the desired results easily.

      If you are totally sure then you can email to PMI..

      Ryan – There are times when certified individuals opt out of the listing.
      here is the text from PMI
      “some credential holders opt out of inclusion on the Credential Registry, and will not display.”

    To me it’s more a matter of faking the need for certifications. It’s called marketing. Worldwide symposiums, institutes? How did the world manage anything before all of this?

    Its much better if we can search by license, because sometime one can use our first name or last name, that not necessary we use in our resume. So, Much better if they include a search by license number. Regards, Alicia.

    PMI will do jack shit with respect to following up on those reported who duplicitously claim one of their credentials. The PMI is doing a disservice to those who have worked towards achieving one with their lack of action.
