2018 PMP® Exam Change

In September 2017, the Project Management Institute (PMI) released the sixth edition of “A Guide To The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)® Guide” for Project Management Professional. To reflect the newest edition of the PMBOK®, PMI® has updated the PMP® exam. The PMP® exam change to include the new PMBOK® information will go into effect on March 26, 2018. 

What Changes?

While exact details of the how the 2018 PMP® exam change will affect the exam preparation is unknown to the public at this time, it is known why PMI® made the changes. With the update to the PMBOK® guide it was necessary to change the exam as well. The new exam will unify the tools, methods, and process groups of the PMBOK® version 6 with the exam. The new exam will also blend the language and phrasing used in the PMBOK® with the exam in order to rectify possible issues of confusion over differing terminology.

Known changes of the PMBOK® that may affect the exam:

  • Renamed Knowledge Areas
    • Schedule Management – previously Time Management
    • Resource Management – previously Human Resource Management
  • New project manager role chapter
  • Knowledge Areas have new sections
    • Concepts
    • New project management practices
    • Attention to project tailoring
    • Applying adaptive or agile environments

What Has Not Changed

While the PMP® exam change will affect the items mentioned above, PMI® has stated that it will not change the PMP® exam content outline. The new exam will reflect the changes to the vocabulary and the addition of the new sections in the PMBOK® 6th edition and evaluate PMP® candidates on the knowledge and skills of the previous exams in the following format:

  • Initiating – 11%
  • Planning – 23%
  • Executing – 26%
  • Control & Monitor – 21%
  • Closing – 9%

Candidates must still correctly answer at least 61% of the 200 multiple choice questions in order to receive a passing score on the exam. The exam will continue to be administered over a 4-hour period by Prometric authorized test centers.
