Update on Project Management Professional (PMP)® Exam Change

In June, PMI announced a significant change to the PMP certification exam. Stakeholders began sharing feedback immediately and the consensus has been they feel they need more time to prepare. We are responding to this feedback with a decision to delay the PMP exam change.

The last day for candidates to take the current version of the PMP exam is now 30 June 2020. Starting 1 July 2020, the PMP exam will reflect the new exam content.

The Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam will be updated in December 2019 to ensure it reflects current practices and equips project managers with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in today’s modern project environments.

Exam Updates

Every 3-5 years PMI researches to understand how the profession has progressed, the impact of emerging trends, and how the responsibilities of project managers have changed.  The last round of this research was conducted in 2015 and resulted in the current PMP exam content outline.

Subject matter experts from leading organizations around the world are currently working with PMI to define the PMP of the future. As this effort advances, we will keep you informed on critical outcomes and help you prepare for the upcoming changes to the PMP exam.
