You will still have the option to take the current CAPM exam based on the PMBOK® Guide – Fifth Edition until 20 May 2018. However, you will not be eligible for a rebate on the fee. 

Why is the CAPM Exam Changing?

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.

We will open the new CAPM exam to all candidates on 21 May 2018 (after the pilot period ends). The new exam reflects the content of the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition.

What is Changing?

If you are taking the new exam based on the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition, you should note the following updates to the Guide:

  • 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
