Hi,

 

this is even not yet announced by PMI, but it will be not before the start of 2018.

Hi,

New PMP exam will come into effect from Q1 2018. PMBOK Guide 6th ed will be released on Q3 2017. For more details refer to - When will PMBOK Guide 6th Edition be Published?

But, I would suggest that you should not wait that long. You should do PMP in next 6 months or so to avoid last minute rush.

"New PMP exam will come into effect from Q1 2018."

 

Hello Praveen,

where does this information come from? In the references there is nothing written about the exam change date?!?!

I am very curious about this.

Regards,

Markus

 

Hi Markus,

You can check my article. There are 2 PMI references at the bottom. Q1, 2018 is mentioned in one of the references.

Hello Praveen,

well, may be i am blind or just have overread the information but i have double checked both references yet and can't find the information about exam changing date like you have mentioned ...?!

May be you could explain exactly where to find this information or may be even better making a screenshot?

Would highly appreciate that;

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Markus

 

 

Hi Markus,

Sorry for the trouble but did not see this coming. Thanks for the heads-up.

The information was there in the first link of my article. But it seems that PMI has changed the page in last 1-2 days. Here is the Google cached page from 9/17

https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:mI0HFif-JHYJ:https://www.pmi.org/pmbok-guide-standards/foundational-standards-exposure-draft+&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=in&client=ubuntu

Just check the top right of the page. It says "The exams for our certifications will be updated in first quarter 2018."

I did a quick search of PMI website. The information relatd to exam change is no longer there. I will do a more thorogh search in a day or two. If I don't find the information then I will update my article.
