There has been no official release date announced by PMI but what was shared with those of us who are part of the review teams for the standard was that they are planning to complete it within one year so I'd expect a launch date sometime in late 2020.

Dear Kiron
Thanks for sharing this information.

With the change taking place in relation to training, its approach and in relation to the R.E.P.'s, is it also July 2020?

If you are referring to the revised PMP exam, that is still July 1, 2020, but that has nothing to do with the 7th edition of the PMBOK Guide. The Guide has never been the sole reference for the PMP exam so the two can be updated independent of one another.

Dear Kiron
From 2020 (July) onwards, PMI will be preparing trainee manuals, trainers' manuals, exam questions and PowerPoint presentations so that all training is aligned worldwide.

From July 2020, anyone who wants to train has to take a train the trainers course if they are to be qualified to train

What does it mean?
That the contents to be delivered have to be prepared by PMI

This is with respect to PMP prep courses and their supporting materials. Based on the surveys which PMI conducted there were concerns with the varying levels of quality on certification prep courses so they will be instituting these changes to improve the quality and consistency of such resources.

Specific details haven't been shared with REPs like the one I work for yet - those are still being ironed out.

Dear Rami
Thanks for sharing the changes coming to the PMP exam

Let's reflect out loud
From July 2020 all training support material will be designed by PMI, namely:
- Trainer's Manual
- Trainees Manual
- PowerPoint Presentation
- Exam Questions

In order to provide training it is necessary to attend a training course for trainers organized by PMI

If they are changing the PMBOK Guide, does it make sense to you that PMI is having the work of designing and delivering training support material based on the previous edition of the Guide?

Muthukrishnan -

The 7th edition is going to be a full rewrite of the PMBOK Guide taking a principle-based (as opposed to process-based) approach. It will be a lot shorter than the current edition as a lot of the practice-focused content is expected to be migrated to an online knowledge base.

Tried to skim down from that article but still cannot grasp the content. You have nicely jotted down them. Thanks

I do not believe what you mentioned is accurate. The change coming in June 2020 is for the Exam Outline Content. They are changing the way the exam questions are, and the domains but PMI will not work on designing training material for anyone. I highly doubt that and not sure where you got this conclusion from.

Each R.E.P. should work on restructuring their training material to be in line with the new ECO (As is normally the case when there is a new PMBOK Edition). This change is significant as the ECO has been the same for years so changing the way it is structured will entail lots of changes in the structure of the training material that REP's provide. PMI can give guidance on the changes which will be used as a reference by REP's or other organizations who provides PMP Training.

This is just my personal opinion - Hope this helps.
