Beginning 26 March 2018, the PMP exam will reflect content from the PMBOK® Guide — Sixth Edition. Until then, exams will continue to reflect the PMBOK® Guide — Fifth Edition. This means there's still plenty of time to get certified before the exam changes! To help you attain your goal, PMI OVOC will be running two more 5 Day PMP Exam Prep Courses before the end of the year, 23-27 October 2017 and 27 November – 1 December 2017. The courses include the added benefit of a 6-week subscription to online practice exams for self-testing. READ MORE
