Project Management Institute (PMI) regularly updates content, standard guide, exam content and all the necessary required details to keep updated with the current good practices of project management and also, to provide a better experience to the project management community.
The recent update is that the Project Management Institute (PMI) is changing the venues and mode of several certification exams in 2019.
They are primarily shifting the exam centers from Prometric to Pearson VUE across the globe except for China for better overall exam experience.
The changes being incorporated are:
Prometric Exam center locations to Pearson VUE:
With more cities and towns included in the list of exam centers to choose from at Pearson VUE centers, the exam can be taken closer to many of the candidates’ location.

Paper-Based Testing to Computer-Based Testing:
Locations, where Paper-based exams were conducted, are now shifted to Computer-based exams at Pearson VUE. The application process, exam fees payment and exam date taking process remain the same.
