The PMP Exam Is Changing In 2016

The PMP certification examination is changing. Originally, the last day to write the current exam was 1 November 2015. As of 14 August 2015, the last day to write has been extended to 11 January 2016. This gives candidates more than two additional months to get certified.

If you have your PMP already, this may be a point of more casual interest. For those of you actively thinking of getting your PMP, you are going to want to pay more careful attention.

What’s driving the change to the examination is a new ‘role delineation study’ conducted by PMI. These studies are conducted periodically, and seek to understand how project managers actively perceive their role and its associated responsibilities. What is less known is that the role delineation study plays a far greater role in determining the content of the PMP certification exam than does the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) standard on which the exam is purportedly based.

Mark recently delivered a webinar that explores what has changed in the role delineation study, and how this will in turn influence changes in the exam. You will find out what has changed and why. You will understand what this means for shaping exam content. And if you are thinking of writing the exam, you will gain some key insights that may shape and influence when you think about writing.

You’ll find out more about the changes to the exam, what this means for you, and how our PMP Exam Preparation workshop can help you best prepare to get your professional designation. It’s an hour’s investment that could have a significant return for your career.
