PMP® Exam Will Change in December

We know the profession of project management is evolving – just like we are as an association. With that in mind, the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam will be updated in December to ensure it reflects up-to-date practices and equips project managers with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in today’s modern project environments.

Leading up to this change, you’ll find news and information here to help you address the needs of your students as they earn PMP status.

Exam Updates

Every 3-5 years we conduct research to understand how the profession has progressed, the impact of emerging trends, and how the responsibilities of project managers have changed. The last round of this research was conducted in 2015 and resulted in the current PMP exam content outline.
