Changes to the Project Management Professional (PMP)® Exam and How They Affect You




Earlier in 2020 The Project Management Institute (PMI)® announced changes to the Registered Education Provider (REP) program and the Project Management Professional Exam(PMP® Exam). The current REP program will be retired at the end of 2020 and be replaced with the Authorized Training Provider (ATP) program. Cprime became an ATP in July 2020, which allows us access to the proprietary PMI courseware, the only approved course to prepare for the PMP® Exam. Not to worry though, if you took a course with us and need to claim your PDUs, all of our courses with approved credits will be transferred to our new ATP profile.

We’ve had a lot of questions about these changes so we wanted to share what we’ve learned with our clients. The below Q&A featuring Cprime Instructor Harlan Bridges, who is already approved to teach the new course, is meant to quickly and concisely inform you what to expect of the PMP® exam changes.
