And whether they will be forced to take the PMP re-exam (if needed) based on PMBOK® Guide 6th edition…
Luckily, PMI’s announcement today has cleared the doubts.
It is highly advised that Aspirants to begin the PMP Exam journey now as there is still plenty of time to get certified without the risks associated with the new PMP Exam syllabus.
