The PMP® Exam is Changing

26 September, 2017

On September 6th, 2017, the Project Management Institute published the sixth edition of its flagship Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). See our previous article for details of the changes they have made in this.

However, the Institute has now published the date when the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam will be changed to align with this new edition of the PMBOK® Guide. The changeover date has been set for March 26th, 2018.

If you have attended a PMP® exam preparation course in the past, but never got around to attempting the exam itself, this announcement means that you have several months in which to do the exam while it is still based on the fifth edition. If you find yourself in this situation, please get in touch and we will assist you in putting an effective study plan in place.

Here in Velopi, we have been busy updating our course materials and will commence providing courses based on the sixth edition in 2018. Unfortunately, it is difficult to predict the nature of the changes this update will make to the PMP® exam itself, so our advice is either to get it done before the changeover (i.e. prior to March 26th) or delay until May, so that there is time for us to get some feedback on the sorts of questions that are coming up.

The choice is yours.
