Based on your question, I think you may find the answer here: www.project-management-prepcast.com/free...all-this-mean-for-me . Look for section Will You Update The PM PrepCast? > Additional PMI and PMP Exam Prep Update. From this article I get that Contact hours (*) earned for taking the course are still valid—no matter if you use the course before or after this change. However, after 2 Jan 2021, you will need to refer to the new Exam Outline.
The article also includes a number of tips and recommendations that you may find useful.


(*) On a side note, PDUs are those you need to have as a PMP certified project manager. As I assume you still have to take the PMP exam, what you refer to are (35) contact hours ;)

Hello Harry,

Adding to above asked question, the mandatory training 35 PDU's which we already hold, do we need to take fresh training or old ones will remain valid. We just need to take exam?

That's the way I've been reading the information from PMI. The exam will change to the new format and the old one will be gone.

Good luck!

I have one year to take the PMP exam from February 2020 to February 2021. The Exam questions are due to change on 2nd January 2021. In case I donot pass my first attempt (God forbid!) that I have planned for November 2020, does this mean that my second and third attempts, if taken after 2nd January 2021 will be based on the new exam questions?

Thank you for your assistance.
