PMI-ACP Exam Update: 26 March 2018

We will update the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam on 26 March 2018 to harmonize with terminology in the Agile Practice Guide (released in September 2017). The current exam content outline (based on the most recent role delineation study from 2014) will still be relevant.

After the release of the new PMI-ACP exam in March, the Agile Practice Guide will be added to the list of reference materials for the exam. 

Why Are Certification Exams Updated with the Release of a New PMI Publication?

Whenever a new PMI publication (a Standard or a Practice Guide) is released or updated that is a reference for the certification exam — such as the Agile Practice Guide — our certification examinations undergo a lexicon update to ensure the exam questions align with the new or updated terminology.

Just the Facts

  • The PMI-ACP exam will change on 26 March 2018.
  • If you schedule your exam on 26 March or later, you will receive an updated version of the exam that may reference the Agile Practice Guide.
