Per PMI’s new Announcement, the PMP Test will be changing effective Dec. 16, 2019.
Q. Why the change?
A. The New ECO (Exam Content Outline)
Every few years PMI conducts a survey of Project Managers world-wide to measure how much their projects map to the tools & best practices in the PMBOK. After analyzing the results of the survey, PMI publishes a new PMP Exam Content Outline (ECO), which becomes their new official guide to the areas of emphasis on the PMP Exam.
2 Key Dates:
1) The new E.C.O. will be released in June 2019.
2) The last day to take the PMP Exam before the change is December 15, 2019.
Q. Is the PMBOK changing?
A. No – the current PMBOK Guide V6 will remain PMI’s standard and primary source material for the PMP and CAPM Exams for the next several years (only the ECO is changing)
