Newark, Delaware (PressExposure) August 04, 2011 -- From our special announcement on 21st July-11 :
As a registered education provider of PMI (R) We are committed to keeping up to date with all changes that come through PMI. As you are probably aware of, PMI has implemented a variety of Changes To The PMP Exam which will take affect on August 31, 2011. On Wednesday July 20th, PMCAMPUS and other certified REPs were informed by PMI that there are additional significant changes to the PMP exam and results measuring system after the new exam begins on August 31st, 2011.
Amongst these and perhaps the most significant change is the decision by PMI to hold test scores for students within the first 4 to 6 weeks of taking the exam after August 31, 2011. Currently, students receive immediate notification of their scores upon completion of the exam. This decision to hold the test scores may drastically affect PMP Exam students who are waiting for a test score to secure a job or new position. While PMI has assured their REPs that this change will only be in affect until mid October, and that it is necessary in order "to validate the new exam structure", we have concern for our students who's lives and careers may be affected by this.
Students, who sit for the exam within the first 4-6 week period after August 31st, will receive email notification from PMI once their test scores are ready.
What can you do if you're planning on taking the exam between August 31st and mid October?
Students planning to take the exam between these dates can schedule to take their exam before the August 31st PMP exam changes go into effect. By scheduling your exam prior to August 31st, you will sit for the old version of the PMP and will still receive your test scores immediately. PMCAMPUS has put out a special offer for PMP exam students who will be taking the exam before August 31st: the 35 Hour PMP Platinum Exam Bundle has been significantly discounted in order to accomodate students who will now be taking the exam sooner. This offer is good through August 30th only!
If you are unable to sit for the PMP Exam before August 31st, and need to take the exam before mid October (no exact date has been specified by PMI as of print time), you will be required to wait the 4-6 week waiting period for your exam results. If you have an employment opportunity that is awaiting your PMP exam results, you should speak with your employer to discuss your options and the additional required wait time.
We understand that these changes can affect many students who have been rigorously planning and studying for the PMP and we are here to do what we can to assist you. Please feel free to contact us and let us know how we can help.
