The final date for the current PMP exam pattern change has moved to 11 January 2016.
The PMP exam pattern change was scheduled to change from 01 November 2015. However, to allow all stakeholders additional time to prepare for the updated Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam, the date has moved to 11 January 2016.
As per a recently completed Role Delineation Study (RDS), it has provided an updated description of the project management professional role. Research included a large-scale survey of global Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification holders to validate updates to domains, tasks, knowledge, and skills. The RDS captures perspectives of project management practitioners from all industries, work settings, and regions. It serves as the foundation for the PMP exam and ensures its validity and relevance.
How will PMP be affected?
The five domains of practice for the PMP remain the same. However, tasks within each domain have been modified, added, or removed.
