In 2017, we launched updated versions of three of our foundational standards, a new practice guide on agile and a new foundational standard on Business Analysis. As a result, in 2018, we will update the corresponding certification exams to ensure the language and terms remain in sync with the updated standards.
We update our foundational standards every five years to reflect the evolving state of the profession. We also launch new standards when necessary to reflect emerging practice areas.
The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® is based solely on the PMBOK® Guide and tests knowledge and understanding of its concepts, tools and techniques. For that reason a new Exam Content Outline and exam for the CAPM will be released that reflects the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition.
