PMP® Exam will change

1. 8. 2019

The PMP exam is now changing 30 June 2020. The last day for candidates to take the current exam will be 30 June. Starting on 1 July 2020, the PMP exam will reflect new exam content.

What is changing?

The new PMP (Project Management Professional) exam will focus on three new domains:

  • PEOPLE – emphasizing the skills and activities associated with effectively leading a project team
  • PROCESS – reinforcing the technical aspects of managing a project
  • BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – highlighting the connection between projects and organization strategy

Content that spans the value spectrum, including predictive, agile and hybrid approaches, will be included across the three exam domains. The best way to understand what is included in the exam is to review the updated Exam Content Outline.

Why is the PMP exam changing?

Every 3 – 5 years, PMP conduct research to understand how the profession has progressed, the impact of emerging trends, and how the responsibilities of project managers have changed. The last research was conducted in 2015 and resulted in the current PMP® Exam Content Outline .

30 June 2020 will be the last day to take the current version of the exam

A few things to keep in mind, depending on how far you are on your path to the PMP:

  • Schedule your exam early (most people reserve their exam date 3 months in advance).
  • Pay for your exam promptly. You can only schedule your exam after you’ve paid for it.
  • Allow yourself enough time. Make sure you are able to follow the PMP timeline:
  • Once you open the application, you have 90 days to complete and submit it.
  • You have one year from the date of your application approval to pass the exam.
