PMP® Exam Changes
PMP® Exam Prep, Eleventh Edition
RMC Releases PMP Exam Prep, Eleventh Edition for 2023 Onward
The PMP® Exam changed significantly starting January 2, 2021. RMC followed quickly with the release of PMP Exam Prep, 10th Edition line of products, classes and eLearning. This release included a host of changes to align to the heavily-revised exam content and structure.
Now, in 2023, we have released PMP Exam Prep, 11th Edition. This latest standard has been significantly reorganized and aligned even more closely to the PMP Exam Content Outline. It also takes cues from the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide), 7th Edition and Process Groups: A Practice Guide, and other sources central to the new exam.
Although the ECO has not changed since January 2, 2021, this newer set of prep materials incorporates improvements based on feedback from customers and students, as well as, new insights from our own experts throughout the 2021-2022 period. The result is an even more succinct and robust set of tools to get you prepared to pass the exam on your first try!
Exam Scoring Update – October 2023
This is an update on our September notice regarding the PMI/Pearson scoring timeline for PMP certification exams.
To enhance security measures, the evaluation process of exam results will now require additional time.
As a result, the release of post-exam pass/fail notice and detailed results analysis will be delayed by up to 5 days after completing the exam. You may receive a provisional notice of pass/fail upon completion of the exam. The score in this provisional notice is still subject to review for verification and validation. In this case the official final score report will typically be available within 48 hours, according to PMI/Pearson.
These changes reflect their commitment to maintaining integrity and accuracy throughout the certification process.
If you have any questions or need further information, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team.
Thank you for choosing us as your partner on your certification journey.

Our class guarantee will be valid for all PMP® Exam Prep classes we host. If you fail the PMP® exam, RMC will honor all guaranteed support actions and restrictions stated in our class guarantee, including free class registration and materials for the latest version of the exam if the previous version is no longer available.
*Please Note: To qualify for our class guarantee, students must take the version of the PMP® exam for which their class was designed. Because our guaranteed supports are, in part, designed around understanding how you personally performed on the actual test, if you do not take the exam for which your class was designed, our level of support will be more limited. Both 10th Edition and 11th Edition RMC PMP Exam Prep Classes are designed for the exam format as it existed in 2021 through the present day.
