Simona Fallavollita and Cornelius Fichtner

The exam for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification is driven by current practices in the profession. Because project management is evolving, so is the PMP exam. As a result of the release of the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition in September 2017, the PMP exam will change on 26 March 2018. This is to ensure that exam content is consistent with the guide.

This interview with Simona Fallavollita (LinkedIn Profile) was recorded at the magnificient Project Management Institute (PMI)® Global Conference 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. We discuss the how, what, why and when of the changes that are coming to the PMP exam.

Although the PMP is not a test of the PMBOK® Guide, it is one of the primary references for the exam. This means that students preparing to take the exam after the change can expect to see lexicon changes and terminology used within the exam as well as harmonization of process groups, tools, and techniques. Students planning to take the exam after the change are advised to use PMP Training materials that are updated to the new guide.

Good luck to all PMBOK 6 exam takers next year.

4month is ahead to change

I'm happy to hear PMI started testing home-based exams for the CAPM. I had to travel four hours to get to the nearest Prometric test centre for my three certifications.

I think putting a deadline on exam based on PMBOK 5th edition should be a motivator for those who had been studying for PMP exam for a while and have not decided to go for it yet.

good luck and move fast and act proactively

Thanks, good luck for all who take the exam after 26 March
