CAPM Certification Process

Regardless of your career stage, the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) is an asset that will distinguish you in the job market and enhance your credibility and effectiveness working on — or with — project teams.

Organizations with standardized practices attain better results, as shown in PMI 2015 Pulse of the Profession report. Because the CAPM recognizes your knowledge of the profession’s preeminent global standard, you’ll stand out to employers and be poised to move ahead.

Project management is a rapidly growing profession. Through 2020, 1.57 million new jobs will be created each year and qualified practitioners are in demand. With the CAPM, you’ll be on the fast track to opportunity.

You need to work really hard to pass the CAPM exam. Unfortunately, none of the training systems can guarantee a positive result. You will stay alone with a questionary in the examination room. Only you and your knowledge could help! All the notes, books, smartphone(s), or friend’s help will be left outside because it’s prohibited by the exam rules.

If you are not ready to make a significant effort for your future and demonstrating an insufficient commitment, it’s highly recommended to postpone the preparation. Do not waste your time and money.

A CAPM certification requires you to meet educational levels before you apply. You will need to provide the details of this education, so it’s best to gather and prepare this information before you open the application.


Prerequisites for CAPM certification

  • Secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or the global equivalent)
  • 23 hours of project management education completed by the time you sit for the exam.

If you don’t have a certificate for 23 contact hours of project management education, you can generate one on KnowledgeMap:
