New CAPM Exam Launched 21 May 2018

On 21 May the new version of the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® exam was released.

New CAPM Exam

The new CAPM exam reflects content from A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition (released in September 2017), which includes information on the latest agile approaches and how to integrate them with traditional project management practices.

The CAPM exam tests your knowledge of the PMBOK® Guide, which we update every five years to reflect ongoing changes in project management practices and the business environment.

What has Changed?

The PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition contains the following updates:

  • A new chapter on the role of the project manager. The new exam will test on the competencies, experience, and skills of effective project leaders across four distinct learning objectives.
  • Two renamed Knowledge Areas.
    • Schedule Management (formerly known as Time Management)
    • Resource Management (formerly known as Human Resource Management)
  • Four new sections in every Knowledge Area.
    • Key Concepts
    • Trends and Emerging Practices
    • Tailoring Considerations
    • Considerations for Agile/Adaptive Environments
