Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)


Course Overview

The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) qualification is the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) preliminary certificate in project management and has been designed around the PMP standard.

The CAPM Certification is based around the sixth edition of the PMBOK® Guide. This certification shows employers your understanding of how to achieve project success, regardless of scale or formality of the project, a factor that is highly desirable by the PMI’s 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report.

The CAPM qualification is ideal for those wanting to train to the level of a PMP certification but don’t have 3-5 years experience required.

Is the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) course suitable for me?

The CAPM® certification is a perfect choice for Junior Project Managers, or those looking to become a Project Management Professional. It is also the way in for those looking to attain PMP® status but do not yet have the hours of experience to undertake the PMP examination.

In order to sit the examination a secondary diploma (A-Levels or a global equivalent) and 23 contact hours of project management training is required. We will help you exceed these hours through our training, giving you additional contact hours.

From that point, you can then decide when you are ready like to undertake the 3-hour, 150 multiple-choice examination in either an online format or at a Pearson Vue testing centre.
