PMP Exam Changes:

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 2019 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.

Subject matter experts from leading organizations around the world are currently working with PMI to define the PMP of the future. As this effort advances, we will keep you informed on key outcomes and help you prepare for the upcoming changes to the PMP.

The NEW PMP® Exam Content Outline provides the framework of what you can expect on the PMP Exam after 15 December 2019.


Project management continues to develop in new directions, and PMP-certified leaders are at the forefront of this exciting evolution – equipped with a diverse skill set to deliver successful project outcomes with the right approach for each project.

What is changing?

The PMP is evolving just like the profession – and the new exam will focus on three new domains:

  1. PEOPLE – emphasizing the skills and activities associated with effectively leading a project team
  2. PROCESS – reinforcing the technical aspects of managing a project
  3. BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – highlighting the connection between projects and organization strategy

Content that spans the value spectrum, including predictive, agile and hybrid approaches, will be included across the three exam domains. The best way to understand what is included in the exam is to review the updated Exam Content Outline.

A few things to keep in mind, depending on how far you are on your path to the PMP:

  • Schedule your exam early. This will allow you to select the date and location that will work best with your schedule. Most people reserve their exam date 3 months in advance.
  • Pay for your exam promptly. You can only schedule your exam after you’ve paid for it.
  • Allow yourself enough time. Make sure you are able to follow the PMP timeline:
    • Once you open the application, you have 90 days to complete and submit it.
    • You have one year from the date of your application approval to pass the exam. Sometimes, more than one attempt is necessary so be sure to leave enough time to re-take the exam before your eligibility expires (one year after your application is approved).
