In March 2020, PMI® announced a delay in the implementation of the exam updates related to the 2020 PMP® Exam Content Outline (ECO). PMP exam updates will now take effect on 2 January 2021.  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?

2020_CW_elements_composite_large_selfstudyThe CertWise Learning System for PMP® Exam Preparation, Version 6.19 is now available! Participant and instructor materials have been updated to align with the 2020 PMP Exam Content Outline (ECO). Instructors can access a webinar recording that outlines exam and product changes on PartnerRC.com.

Throughout the transition to the updated exam on 2 January 2021, CertWise will be providing information and support to our Global Education Partners. 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 31 December 2020. The current exam will not be available after this date. It is important that you notify your students and encourage them to schedule their exam before this date.
  • All 13-week prep classes should continue with current materials through August 2020. 8-Week classes should continue through September 2020. Short bootcamp format courses can run through October. You should begin using the updated CertWise material starting September 2020 for 13-week classes, October 2020 for 8-week classes, and November 2020 for bootcamps.
  • As the deadline nears, we will offer a free upgrade to the updated program (V6.19 – online version) to all PMP candidates with an active license for the CertWise Learning System for PMP Exam Preparation, 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.
