All our students are provided with complimentary access to supplemental training material that will cover the new RDS tasks in order to be well prepared for the new exam. There will no change necessary to the current course offer due to the nature of changes.

If you plan to take your exam after January 12, not to worry, supplemental material will be provided at no extra cost as part of our PMP prep training courses under "supplemental material update 2016". It will cover the new tasks that have been uncovered by the latest version of the RDS as follow:


  • Domain 1: Initiating the Project 3 tasks added (task 2, task 7, task 8)
  • Domain 2: Planning the Project 1 task added (task 13)

  • Domain 4: Monitoring and controlling the project 2 tasks added (task 6, task 7)
  • Domain 5: Closing the project No new tasks added

The current PMP exam covers 37 tasks distributed among the 5 domains and PMCampus PMP prep training material already covers all these 37 tasks plus an extra set of 3 cross-domain tasks. Many other training company have not integrated RDS tasks in their training but be assured PMCampus makes sure we have the most updated database of questions and training material.

Our team is well versed at analyzing RDS tasks and developing PMP practice questions that will be provided to you at no extra cost to succeed at the PMP exam with confidence and on budget.
