The PMP Exam format is changing from 1 July 2020!

The exam is changing because the role of a project managers has changed.

Every 3-5 years, PMIĀ® conducts research to understand how the profession has progressed, the impact of emerging trends, and how the responsibilities of project managers have changed.  The last round of this research was conducted in 2015 and resulted in the current PMP exam content outline.

Subject matter experts from leading organizations around the world have worked with PMI to define the PMP of the future. The result of this research was the publication of a new PMP Examination Content Outline in June of 2019, and one year later, this new outline will lead to an updated PMP exam.

A new PMP Examination Content Outline was published on 30 June 2019. This document defines the syllabus/content of the PMP exam. This means that PMI is currently updating the PMP exam to match the new syllabus and the new exam will go into effect on 1 July 2020. 

If you plan on taking the PMP exam on or before 30 June 2020
  • Continue your studies without changing anything.
  • Use the current PMP Exam Content Outline (published in 2015) as your general guide to the exam.
  • Study using the PMBOKĀ® Guide Sixth Edition.
  • Try and schedule your exam no later than 30 April 2020 so that you can avoid the 'mad rush' expected for May and June when everyone wants to take the exam before the change.
  • Scheduling your exam before May also gives you an additional two months to take it again in case you don't pass at first.
Book now and prepare for your PMP exam and capitalise on the old exam content!
