In June, PMI® announced significant changes to the PMP® Exam Content Outline (ECO) to take effect after 15 December. The following resources provide an overview of these exam changes and how they will impact your PMP course offerings, the CertWise Learning System for PMP Exam Preparation materials, and your students.

How and When Will the CertWise Course Materials Be Updated?

CertWise will be providing information and support to our Global Education Partners throughout this transition process. Download this flyer for an overview of changes and our advice for working through this transition.

The following are important points to remember:

  • The PMP exam will change after 15 December 2019. The current exam will not be available after this date. It is important that you encourage your current and fall semester students to sit for the PMP exam by this date.
  • All PMP exam preparation classes should end by 15 November to give students enough time to sit for the exam by the transition date. We have provided suggested course agendas below for an 8-unit class and 5-unit class.
  • The updated version of the CertWise Learning System for PMP Exam Preparation, student and instructor materials, will be available for your January / spring course sessions.
  • All PMP candidates with an active license for the CertWise Learning System for PMP Exam Preparation will be eligible for an extended license and free upgrade to the updated program V6.19 (online version), upon request. This means they are covered if they are unable to sit for the exam before it changes. Printed books will be available for an extra fee of $100 plus applicable shipping and taxes.
