The PMP Exam is Changing in January 2021!

The PMP Exam is Changing - January 2021 - LEARN MORE!

THE PMP EXAM IS CHANGING IN JANUARY 2021!

 

The Project Management Institute (PMI)® announced that a change is coming to The Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam in January 2021.

Why is The PMP Exam Changing in 2021?

The exam is changing because our jobs as project managers have changed.

 

Every 3-5 years, PMI® 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 on 2 January 2021, this new outline will lead to an updated PMP exam.

When is the PMP Exam Changing in 2021?

There are three important dates to remember for those currently studying for the exam:

 

June 30, 2019 - PMI published the new PMP Exam Content Outline

December 31, 2020 – This is the last day to take the current version of the PMP Exam.

January 2, 2021 – This is the first day to take the new version of the PMP Exam.

What are the 2021 PMP Exam Changes?

 

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 2 January 2021.

 

Here are both documents for you to download. Please note that the link to the 2015 document will stop working once PMI removes it from its website:

 

 

So just to be absolutely clear: Contrary to what many students and trainers may think, the PMP exam is NOT based on A Guide to The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). The PMBOK® Guide is only one of several references PMI uses to design their PMP exam questions. Instead, the exam is based on The PMP Examination Content Outline. A new version of this outline was published in June 2019, and PMI will use this new outline as the basis to update the exam.

 

Also, in order to give training providers around the world adequate time to update their books and simulators, PMI is waiting quite a long time until the new exam specifications from the exam content outline come into effect. This also allows students enough time to prepare for and pass the current exam before the changeover happens.
