PMP® Exam Change 2021

UPDATED 03/19/2020

From   Updated: 18 March 2020

PMI is committed to the safety and well-being of our global community. Our Crisis Task Force is monitoring the situation arising from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) daily.

To assure your health and wellbeing, we have made decisions impacting several global events. We have sent email communications to those of you who registered for these events that have changed. However, here is a high-level summary of events that we changed.

PMI Certification Candidates

For all certification exam candidates who are able to proceed with taking your scheduled exam, please consult test center information to your specific location at  PearsonVUE’s Coronavirus Update Page  as it is updated regularly.

For candidates who already scheduled the exam but are unable to take it due to health restrictions or delayed with training, PMI will offer you to reschedule your exam and will automatically extend your exam eligibility until 18 January 2021. All paid fees will be eligible for a refund and you will be able to reschedule without accruing penalty fees. We are also actively exploring and expediting solutions to offer alternative PMP® exam delivery options, and will share more information as it becomes available.

For all PMP candidates, we are extending access to the current PMP exam until 31 December 2020 and postponing the launch of the new PMP exam until 2 January 2021. Stay up to date on the latest exam changes. 

Upcoming Changes to Rita Mulcahy’s PMP® Exam Prep Book

It’s that time again. The Project Management Institute® (PMI) has updated their book A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). This occurs every four years. It’s PMI’s way of keeping the book current with today’s project management practices.

For RMC it means that all of our books, software, and classes have to be revised to stay in alignment with the PMBOK® Guide-Sixth Edition. It also provides us with the opportunity to make other changes to our products and courses so we can deliver the best possible learning experiences. And we are hard at it. Read on to learn about what exactly we are changing and how it aligns with the new PMBOK® Guide.

What Good Are Certifications, Anyway?

It seems that certifications are under attack.  In the past several months I’ve heard that corporations are no longer interested in having their employees obtain any certifications. This rant is not limited to the PMP®.  Indeed, it is said that companies are now solely interested in skills training. On one level this makes sense.  Why should a company care whether their employees are certified project managers, business analysts or Scrum Masters so long as they are able to perform those functions? What good are certifications, anyway?

PMP® Exam Preparation: Understanding Beats Memorization

PMP Exam: Understanding vs. Memorization

Why does RMC focus on understanding rather than memorization?  As RMC’s project management practice leader I’m often asked: “why can’t I just memorize the process names, inputs, tools, techniques, and outputs (ITTOs) and pass the exam?” The answer to this question is quite simple.  Understanding works, memorization does not, especially in the context of the PMP® exam. Let’s discuss understanding vs. memorization.
