Change is coming!
Every four years, PMI updates the PMBOK® Guide. PMI released the PMBOK® Guide Sixth Edition, and the PMP exam will change on March 26, 2018. After this date, you may no longer take a 5th edition test, and only 6th edition tests will be administered.
A Few Key Changes…
PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP® demonstrates that you have the experience, education, and competency to lead and direct projects.
This recognition is seen through increased marketability to employers and higher salary; according to the PMI Project Management Salary Survey–Seventh Edition, certification positively impacts project manager salaries.
The PMP recognizes demonstrated competence in leading and directing project teams. If you’re an experienced manager of project related activities looking to solidify your skills, stand out to employers and maximize your earning potential, the PMP credential is the right choice for you. PMP Requirements:
To apply for the PMP, you need to have either:
• A four-year degree (bachelor’s or the global equivalent) and at least three years of experience, with 4,500 hours leading and directing projects (You did NOT have to have the title of Project Manager.) and 35 hours of project management education (This course meets the 35-hour requirement.).
