Keep your Badge. Renew your PMP credentials

The effort required to maintain your PMP is far less than the effort you made to earn it. Being recognized as a PMP ensures that your abilities are better compensated and rewarded. If you have the certification, you can open more doors for yourself. So why let it lapse?

PMP Credential Renewal Guidelines

In order to satisfy the Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program and maintain an active certification status, you must:

  1. Earn and report the appropriate amount of professional development units (PDUs) during each three-year certification/CCR cycle
  2. Complete an Application for Certification Renewal
  3. Reaffirm PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and PMI Certification Application/Renewal Agreement

Updates to the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Exam from 31 Aug 2011
By Admin Pmi Kerala, On: June 28, 2011, midnight

The Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential examination will be updated in 2011, based on updates to the professional role of a PMP® recently found in PMI’s Role Delineation Study (RDS).

PMI conducts a Role Delineation Study for the PMP credential every five to seven years to ensure the credential reflects contemporary practice, evolves to meet current needs in the profession, and to comply with the PMP credential’s accreditation against the ISO 17024 standard

These updates to the role do have an effect on the examination questions for the PMP, and will be reflected in the PMP examination starting 31 August 2011.

Exam Changes

Project managers pursuing the credential or preparing for the exam in the upcoming year should be aware that approximately 30 percent of the PMP exam will change. Education and experience eligibility requirements for the PMP credential will not change, however.

As a result of the RDS, certain areas of the examination will be tested in a different way because an existing domain was seen to be common across all content areas of the examination. Specifically, the Professional and Social Responsibility content area (Domain 6) will now be tested in every domain rather than as a separate domain on the examination.

The RDS helped reveal that professional and social responsibility are integrated into all of the work of project management. PMI’s Code of Ethics and Professional conduct should therefore be viewed as now integrated into the day-to-day role of a project manager, emphasizing its importance in each phase of the project life cycle. 

The new examination is scheduled to be released on 31 August 2011. This means that the last day to take the current PMP exam is 30 August 2011. Candidates who would like to take the current version of the examination are advised to schedule early to ensure that they are able to obtain a test date before the update.

If you are preparing training to take the PMP examination after 31 August, you can access a complimentary electronic copy of the PMP Examination Content Outline, formerly titled the PMP Examination Specification.
