Exciting Updates Coming for the PMI-RMP Certification!

It’s a new world with new challenges – The PMI-RMP exam is evolving to meet today’s demands of the profession, organizations, and you.

Distinguish yourself as a Risk Project Management Professional equipped to help organizations navigate the unique challenges of today with PMI's UPDATED Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) Certification.

The new PMI-RMP® exam will cover updated terminology and processes, as well as enterprise-level risks the candidate needs to be knowledgeable about to be successful in project risk management. While the exam will have the same number of questions and the same length, it will also have new multiple select questions. Predictive, agile, and hybrid approaches will be found throughout the tested domains.

Be one of the first project professionals to take the updated exam by participating in our Exam Pilot. Pilot participants receive

  • a 20% off rebate
  • one FREE retake of the exam.

Ask Us Anything - PMI Certification Offerings through the Certification Framework!

Please join us for our next our next “Discover PMI - Ask Us Anything!” webinar, Ask Us Anything - PMI Certification Offerings through the Certification Framework! on 03 December at 12:00PM EST.

In this installment of the Discover PMI – Ask Us Anything Series, we will provide an overview of PMI’s Certification offerings through the Certification Framework. PMI was founded by volunteers in 1969 and since then has provided certifications and credentials to allow individuals to differentiate themselves in the marketplace.  Today’s employment market has been impacted by the disruption of traditional business models due to the continued move to a project oriented economy and global events impacting supply chains and the way individuals work.  No longer does the ‘corporate ladder’ meet the needs of employees.   The Certification Framework provides a view of the more ‘squiggly’ career paths that are coming into focus now and should be with us in the future. In this session, the Certification team will introduce and describe the breadth of products available and provide an opportunity for you to interact with the Product Owners.  

By attending this FREE webinar, you’ll walk away with the following outcomes:

  • Participants will learn where to review the organization’s current certification and credential offerings.
  • Participants will be able to identify how to utilize the tool to guide their individualized career path.
  • Participants will know the requirements for each offering.

Please join us for an informal and interactive discussion focused on PMI’s Certification Offerings at PMI!
