The PMP Update, 2021 – Everything You Need to Know
5 Key Changes That The PMP Aspirants Should Be Aware Of
The new PMP certification exam has quite a few elements that are different from the old one. Here you will get to know more about the different categories in which changes were made.
Scope of Exam
The new PMP exam pattern effective from January 2, 2021, will be based on three domains – People, Process, and Business Environment whereas the old PMP exam is based on five domains i.e. Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling, and Closing. Here is a table comparing the categories and their respective emphasis in the old and new PMP exam formats.
Exam Questions from Agile and Hybrid Methodologies
50% of the exam questions in the new PMP certification exam will be from Agile and Hybrid methodologies. Even though there is no official declaration on a similar percentage for the old PMP exam, the percentage seems to be comparatively lower.
Official Courseware for the PMP Exam
Since the inception of PMP in 1984, Project Management Institute (PMI) has never declared any document as the ultimate prep resource for the PMP examination. As a result, the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) guide has enjoyed the reputation of being the fundamental resource for PMP aspirants. Since the actual PMP exam includes questions beyond this guide, many authors have launched study materials in the pursuit of bridging the gap.
Cut to 2020. The Project Management Institute has launched the official courseware for the PMP exam. This does not only work as the official prep content but also is aligned with the exam content outline. That brings an end to the typical concerns of PMP aspirants regarding the official prep resource.
Authorized Training Provider (ATP) Program
There’s a significant change when it comes to candidates looking to take up self-paced courses to study for and attempt the PMP exam. PMI has announced that it shall be the sole provider for the self-paced course and that instructor-led training from an ATP.
And given that the self-paced course is priced at $699, it seems like a clear move on PMI’s part to encourage test takers to take up cost-effective instructor-led training from its registered ATPs.
Despite the rumours that continue to make the scenario even more opaque, these are two options that PMP aspirants have. Another major change related to this is the addition of the mandatory Train The Trainer (TTT) program. Instructors must pass the TTT program to be eligible to teach PMP prep courses.
You might have already heard about these changes. It is the significance of them that has got them placed on this list. Recent changes regarding the application process and the exam availability are given below:
i) The application process is now simpler and is far less time-consuming.
ii) In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, PMI has decided to allow online, proctored PMP exams that candidates can easily take from the comfort of their home.
