The examination process consists of a two-part written examination:
Part 1: Multiple choice (MC) – 30 questions. One or more answers are correct.
Part 2: Multiple choice (MC) with practical situation – 15 questions. One or more answers are correct. 

Participant group

Experienced HERMES project leaders, project managers or sub-project leaders


The two parts of the examination last 60 minutes each with a 10-minutes break in between


We recommend the HERMES Foundation Certificate and participation in HERMES Advanced Training. (Please note: The Advanced exam is much more demanding than the Foundation exam. The exam is exclusively about HERMES and no other project management methods).
