As mentioned in our previous post, a new Project Management Professional (PMP)® examination will be released on 31 August 2011. In the past, PMI has required candidates to track and report their hours of experience leading and directing projects for different tasks within each domain (Process Group). On 31 August, PMI will update the PMP application form to require candidates to track and report their hours only for each domain (Process Group). Any candidates who have an application in progress at the time the change is made will have their experience hours migrated to the new application, so that no data is lost.
These changes are minor, should make the application process a little bit easier, and shouldn’t cause an inconvenience for those candidates who are already into the application process.
