PMI-RMP Exam Update!!
Network:4011



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

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.

Dear All,

Me too is concerned about the subject anticipated changes in as far as the PMI certifications; kindly refer to this link as to below guideline among others from the PMI;
"https://www.pmi.org/certifications/types/p...ent-pmp/update"

."As a result of the release of the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition in September 2017, the PMP exam will change 26 March 2018. These updates will ensure the exam content is consistent with the PMBOK® Guide".

Cheers.

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.

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.
