CAPM Course Description

PMI's Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) is an entry-level credential being offered by PMI since 2003. CAPM credential exam is designed for professionals who have gained either 1,500 hours of project management experience or 23 contact hours of project management education. In this course, you learn the essential terminology from A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide), tools and techniques required to pass the CAPM exam along with practice tests and merely requires those who attain it to retest and recertify at the end of the five-year certification cycle.
Individuals who contribute specialized skills to a project team can benefit from this certification by allowing them to align their work with that of project managers. Individuals who do not have project experience but are interested in project management can benefit from this certification as well because it demonstrates their professional knowledge. This knowledge can be applied to on-the-job experiences which help develop growing levels of competence in the practice of project management. Individuals who carry the CAPM designation after their name enjoy a high level of credibility from PMP® certification holders, project managers, employers, and peers. For professionals with a greater amount of experience, the PMP certification is recommended.

    This is great

    I really love the course editor in LearnPress. It is never easier when creating courses, lessons, quizzes with this one. It's the most useful LMS WordPress plugin I have ever used. Thank a lot! Testing quiz is funny, I like the sorting choice question type most.

1. I am new to CAPM and Project Management where can I get started?
Please download CAPM Handbook here and please carefully read the book as it will tell you everything you need to know about getting started.

2. CAPM vs PMP, which one should I go for?
CAPM certification is designed for individuals with upto 2years of experience and who wish to have a career in project management. It is an entry level certification but provides great value for aspiring project managers. To be able to qualify for Certified Associate in Project Management certification, you need to have experience in project works, possess basic knowledge about project management, and hold a secondary diploma. Whereas for a PMP certification is for professionals who has 3years of project management experience with a bachelor's degree.  You can get a CAPM certification even if you don’t have a bachelor’s degree. This is one of the major benefits of this certification. On the other hand, you will not be able to apply for a PMP certification if you have no bachelor’s degree or secondary diploma plus 5 years project management experience. In terms of requirements, CAPM has fewer requirements compared to PMP.

3. Does the course fee include the examination fee as well?
No, the course fee is only for earning PDU's required to appear for the respective exams.

4. What is the duration of the CAPM® exam?
The CAPM® exam is conducted over three hours.

5. Do I receive a certificate upon completing the course?
Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion showing that you completed the course and earned the 23 contact hours required to sit for the exam. 

6. Does your course contact hours/PDU certificate honoured by PMI?
Yes, our CAPM course contact hour certificate is well accepted by PMI and successfully pass the audit process, if you're selected. If not, we will get your training and exam cost refunded without any questions.

7. Will I get CAPM exam prep ebook?
Yes, as apart of effort to uplift continuous learning, we will provide a copy of CAPM ebook for all of our classroom learning participants.

8. How do I prove my experience?
You will document your experience in your online application (www.pmi.org). You must list projects you have worked on, along with a reference person. Your job title need not be "project manager," but you will need to show that you were leading and directing project activities. To keep everyone honest, PMI audits about 5-10% of candidates.
