Uncertainty. Really?



As many of you know, the PMP® Exam is changing 1 July 2020.

Why is the PMP exam changing?

Every 3 - 5 years, we conduct research to understand how the profession has progressed, the impact of emerging trends, and how the responsibilities of project managers have changed. The last research was conducted in 2015 and resulted in the current PMP® Exam Content Outline

Subject Matter Experts from leading organizations from around the world have worked with us to define the PMP of the future. We will continue to share information here to keep you informed – whether you are thinking about earning the PMP or preparing to take the exam soon.

We know all of you post in Project Management Central asking for best practices in taking the current PMP exam. In order to better streamline the focus of this important topic, we decided to dedicate its own Discussion Forum - Certification Central. We hope this helps with your questions and concerns and receive helpful tips and feedback from your wonderful community members who go the extra mile in providing commentary!

Best of luck to all of you!

Very cool. Thank you, Kimberly, and team! This should prove a valuable addition.

Dear Kimberly
Interesting decision to dedicate its own Discussion Forum - Certification Central
Thank you for sharing this precious information


Good addition - It was much needed and I trust it will help minimize the number of repetitive questions related to exams.

It would even be better if under this category you do sub-categories for each exam separately (Maybe not now, but in the future).


That's a great start, like that when we want to refresh our knowledge or support the peers that are trying to achieve a new certification or ourselves want to achieve a new one, we can go there, else if we prefer to engage with more tricky questions we can use other forums.
Rami made a good recommendation as next step, adding sub-categories.
