Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)

Course Overview

The Certified Associate in Project Management (or CAPM® for short), is the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) introductory certificate in Project Management. This qualification has been designed around the PMP standard and is intended for those individuals who want to stand out in the job market, with a recognised qualification to enhance your credibility.

The CAPM Certification is based around the sixth edition of the PMBOK® Guide. By earning this Project Management institute certification, you show employers that you understand how to achieve consistent project success, irrespective of scale or formality of the project; a facet identified as being highly desirable by the PMI’s 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report.

If you would like to train to the level of a PMP certification but lack the required 3-5 years experience, a CAPM certification would be the best course option for you.

Is the CAPM certification suitable for me?

The CAPM® certification is a great option for Junior Project Managers, or individuals looking to become a Project Management Professional. It is also an ideal gateway for those looking to attain PMP® status but do not yet have the hours of experience to undertake the PMP examination.

The prerequisites to sit the examination are a secondary diploma (A-Levels or a global equivalent) and 23 contact hours of project management training. 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.
