PMI-RMP Exam Update!!
Network:3384



I just checked the new edition of PMBOK and found slight changes in the Risk Management Knowledge area with 1 additional Risk Management Processes. I believe that PMI-RMP Exam is going to change as well with PMP Exam.

Anyone has any update about this!? Any timeline about when the exam is going to change?

Thank you

There is no such information available yet.

This is what PMI states on the PMBOK 6 page:

"The Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® exams will be updated in Q1 and Q2 2018 to correspond to the release of the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition and the Agile Practice Guide."

You will notice that RMP is not listed. It may happen later but, as Markus pointed out, we don't know.

As per the info provided by PMI on their Registered Education Provider support microportal:

Will the PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)® or PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP)® certifications be affected?
No, the content of these exams will remain the same as before the release of the new publications.

Thank you everyone for the information. Appreciate it.

Can anyone also please tell me any cost effective source from where I could get the required 40 or 30 contact hours of Project Risk Management Education online!?

Sharique -

A couple of options include:

1. Free webinars from sources like projectmanagement.com or projecttimes.com which are focused on risk management

2. Don't discount the risk management component of any broad PM training you've previously taken. For example, if you took a PMP prep course to help you study for the PMP exam, estimate how many hours of that course were focused on risk management.

Consider taking an online, self-pace university course. That's what I did to get my 40 hours. It was a good investment beyond just meeting the RMP pre-requisites.
