PMP® & CAPM® Exam Preparation Courses

PMI REP LogoThe PMP® is Evolving

On 26 March 2018, the Project Management Institute (PMI®) released the updated version of the Project Management Professional (PMP®) Exam to reflect the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition.

Why is the PMP Exam Changing?

In conjunction with the September 2017 release of the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition, we are updating the PMP exam. This will ensure consistent use of terminology and will harmonize process groups, tools and techniques between the Guide and the exam.

Although it does not test your knowledge of the PMBOK Guide®, it is one of the primary references for the exam. Please note, the PMP exam content outline will not be updated.

What is Changing?

If you’re utilizing the PMBOK Guide® as a study tool for the exam, you can expect to find the following updates in the PMBOK Guide® – Sixth Edition:

  • A new chapter on the role of the project manager that focuses on effective leadership — including necessary competencies, experience and skills.
  • Two renamed Knowledge Areas that more accurately reflect which elements can be managed and which cannot:
    • Schedule Management (formerly known as Time Management)
    • Resource Management (formerly known as Human Resource Management)
  • Every Knowledge Area now features four new sections:
    • Key Concepts
    • Trends and Emerging Practice
    • Tailoring Considerations
    • Considerations for Agile/Adaptive Environments

The Project Management Professional PMP® is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers.
