The 6th ed and CME program should be available by the end of the year. It's in copyediting right now.

Will the recertification exam in 2021 be based on the 6th edition or the 5th edition still?

The MROCC recertification examination has been updated as new regulations, science, and practices evolve. The MROCC exam has been updated since I wrote the 5th ed in 2014 -2015. I help write the MROCC exam. But, I'm just one of a team who do that, and the others are experts in MRO related topics but they are not involved in writing the MROCC MRO manual.

My point is, the exam is not based on the book. On the other hand, I would expect much of the material on the exam to be covered in the MROCC MRO manual (and in other good references like the SAMHSA MRO Manual and the AAMRO MRO handbook).
