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!
