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.
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.
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
Specific details haven't been shared with REPs like the one I work for yet - those are still being ironed out.
Check this article and it will help you Have a better understanding of the changes coming to the PMP exam:
As Kiron mentioned, the changes coming in July 2020 has nothing to do with the PMBOK and it has more to do with the nature of the questions and new domains.
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.
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?
