The following information about the PMP Exam does not affect CAPM Trainees. However, take your CAPM exam while you can as your exam will change when there is a PMBOK(R) GUIDE, Seventh Edition. How far is it away? Possibly a year or so. It has not been announce but it is being worked on.

Impact of the New PMP Exam - Now extended: This exam will now start 1-2-2021. PMI's processes are changing for this exam. Read the next 3 paragraphs as there are items on this page that are impacted by the changes, until we know further information.

About the PMP Exam: We are currently training for the current V6 Exam which started on 3/26/18. The last day to take the current PMP exam has been extended to 12/31/2020, and the new exam now starts on 1/2/2021.

For current V6 PMP Exam Trainees – Information updated 3-19-2020: Free re-sitting of the current PMP exam training will be available for up to six months or until our last training date purchased by someone else for the current exam, whichever comes first. We will not be able to provide free re-sitting after the last current PMP class to current PMP Exam takers. Plan to take and pass your exam well before the 12-31-2020 cut off so you can retake the exam again should you not pass the first time. However, we do answer all your questions by phone, text or email while you are preparing for your exam. While most of our people pass the first time, plan ahead to mitigate any risks. Schedule your exam early enough so you can take it again if you need to. Free re-sitting is available to our trainees when someone purchases a class. To re-sit a class for the current exam, all you need to do is contact Nereda Haque, PMP at 360-584-8614 or just email her requesting a re-sitting opportunity for the current exam. Our goal is to help you pass, and this has always been the mission that has driven us over the last 12 years. If you need to take the new PMP exam, you will be considered a new student by the Project Management Institute, Inc. Re-sitting the new PMP exam will not be an option for current PMP Exam trainees, however you can go through re-training. We will provide loyalty pricing for our trainees who still have to take the PMP Exam after 12-31-2020. We will need to purchase new materials for you from the Project Management Institute, Inc as they will now be creating the PMP Prep book for everyone. We will provide a loyalty transition retraining special for the retraining once we know more, but we won't be able to provide it for free.

Policies and Procedures around the Third Exam Payment:
This Pass Guarantee pays for the third exam based on your compliance and is provided for SmartPath LLC’s PMP Certification with Prep (4 to 5 days) or CAPM (3 days) training. All classes are guaranteed to run at the time of purchase. 2 Day Preps and other training are not included but they will save you money if you have trained with any company before and you want a strong refresher.

Exception to a third payment: If you are starting a new 12 months for Exam acceptance, then the pass guarantee applies. If you are starting at exam tries 2 or 3, then it cannot apply because we only pay $275 or $375 for a third exam payment only, within a a 12 months acceptance period. So if you extend your exam, and you qualify for a third exam payment, request your payment before you 12 months ends.

SmartPath LLC's 3rd Payment Pass Guarantee Obligation ends 12 months from the start of your exam approval: The third exam payment is made with you, and for you, during a conference call with the Project Management Institute. If the PMI® organization grants you an extension to your PMP exam, we will not pay for your exam outside of the first exam approval period. We will pay for it before your initial 12 months expires. So get it paid during this time. Therefore, also call or email us to pay for your exam before your approval runs out, and you can then schedule it before or during your extended time. Therefore, it is your responsibility to provide your exam reports. Our payment will be either for $275 or $375 member / non-member rate only, whichever applies.

The first time you take it, it costs $405 or $555 depending on whether or not you are a PMI Member. The next time you take it, it is $275 / $375 member / non-member rate. Every PMP Exam is not the same. PMI does not release prior PMP Exams for you to study. The PMP exam is based on their PMP Exam outline and your success may be based on the level of difficulty you were able to achieve based on how many best answers you achieved. However, each exam question is worth one point. You need a thorough preparation in order to pass it. And you need both the appropriate experience and 35 hours of project management training in order to be approved to take the PMP Exam. Just because you have Exam acceptance doesn't mean you know enough in order to pass the PMP exam. It just means you have done some project management training at sometime in the past. You need to make sure your current training covers the information you need to know in order to be successful. The non-member rate for the CAPM exam is $300 and the repeat exams within the exam acceptance period is $225.
