Stay Up to Date with PMI Bluegrass – Changes to the PMP Exam!
The Project Management Institute (PMI)® has announced they are changing the PMP® exam as of July 1st. The new Exam Content Outline (ECO) is a dramatic change from the existing 2015 version and it appears it will result in MASSIVE changes to the exam. PMI has stated this is the largest change ever made to the exam! However, they are not updating the PMBOK® Guide at the same time but cite a list of eight (8) additional references applicants should consider. What does all this mean for those hoping to take the PMP exam after June 30? What does it mean for those already possessing their PMP that want to stay current with PMI’s approach?
PMI has also announced changes to the program that authorizes Registered Education Providers (REPs) to teach PMP exam prep classes and provide Professional Development Units (PDUs) to maintain certification afterwards. How will this affect the global and local training market?
During this session, Glenn Thomas will explore what is currently known about the above changes to both the exam and the REP program, make recommendations for those considering sitting for the PMP exam in the near future, and provide his insight in responding to questions.
