Project Management Professional (PMP)® Exam Changes from March 2018

Why is the PMP® exam changing?


Project Management Professional (PMP)® is one of the most widely-respected credentials in the global project management community.

As such, it must evolve to remain at the cutting edge of project management methodologies and continue to lead the way in industry standards.

For this reason, a new version of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) was released in September 2017. The updated contents of the PMBOK® Guide - Sixth Edition prompted the PMP® Exam to change.

When did the changes come into effect?


The updated exam came into effect on March 26th 2018.

Our PMP® Exam Prep Course is fully aligned with the PMBOK® Guide - Sixth Edition.
