Classes Updated to include the PMP Exam RDS Rewrite
As of August 31. 2011 PMI will revise the current PMP exam to more appropriately reflect the way Project Managers do their jobs in the real world. In order to keep the PMP certification relevant to what happens in the workplace PMI interviews practitioners to determine what is important and how it is applied - this is the RDS Survey. The current survey indicates that approximately 30% of the content on the PMP examination needs to be revised with substantial changes to reflect the role as defined by the RDS. This will result in existing items being updated as appropriate, new examination items being developed to meet these requirements, and old items which do not meet the criteria being retired.
The RDS also indicates that certain areas of the examination need to be tested in a different way because it 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. As such, PMI’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct is now integrated into the day-to-day role of a project manager, emphasizing its importance in each phase of the project lifecycle.
Base material for the PMP Exam remains PMBOK Guide Fourth Edition. No revisions or supplements are anticipated. Practical Solutions is working on revised material for this Exam change and will incorporate the changes as necessary to provide the best PMP Exam Prep class available.
