Description of the new Seminar and the PMP 2021 examination

In 2020 the Project Management Institute (PMI) decided to prepare its own material and exercises for the preparation of the PMP exams. Then, through a process of strict criteria, he selected the educational organizations that will be able to teach this material, and which will be the new Authorized Training Partners (ATPs).

In addition, again in 2020, the PMI renewed the format and content of the PMP exam, releasing a new Exam Content Outline (syllabus) . The changes in the new exam, which will start in January 2021, are significant and structural. The material is divided into 3 main sections (People, Process, Business Environment) , while about 50% of the questions will come from an agile environment!

You can see a more detailed description of the changes in our article here.

Critical Path, with over 15 years of experience in implementing PMP training programs , is one of the first ATPs in the world, and offers for the first time in Greece the new preparation program for PMP certification exams ! PMI material and exercises are enriched with our additional material and exercises, examples, templates, online preparation tests, etc.

The purpose of this new seminar is to help participants prepare properly for the new exams for the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification of Project Management Institute (PMI) ® , as they will be given from January 2021.

The seminar is based on the latest edition of the PMBOK® Guide (6th edition) , the PMI manual. It also uses PMI's Agile Practice Guide. Finally, it utilizes the literature proposed by PMI and has been the basis for the development of the new Exam Content Outline.

The seminar material developed by PMI will be available online for participants, along with additional material from PMI itself (checklists, templates, etc.).

Characteristic of the seminar is its practical form , which focuses on the exercises first developed by PMI itself and which only Authorized Training Partners can use! / strong>
