Important Timeframes and Deadlines for Practitioners relative to the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition
October 3, 2017

The PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition was released in early September 2017, together with its associated Agile Practice Guide.

As a result of the above it is anticipated that in late March 2018, the PMP®, CAPM® and PMI-ACP® exams will change, to align with PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition and the new Agile Practice Guide, which serve as references.

Information for each exam can be found in the appropriate Exam Content Outline (ECO) on Please note the ECO for the PMP® Exam will not change.

Beginning 26 March 2018, the PMP® exam will reflect content from the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition. Exams administered before 26 March 2018 reflect PMBOK® Guide – Fifth Edition. On 26 March 2018, the PMI-ACP exam will also change to reflect the new Agile Practice Guide.

Updated information for the CAPM® exam, which will now be offered as a “fully proctored” examination and will not require attendance at a Prometric Test Centre,  will be shared in upcoming news releases, as this information becomes available.
