Overview of the CAPM Certification
The CAPM certification offers recognition to practitioners who are interested in, or are just starting a career in project management, as well as project team members who wish to demonstrate their project management knowledge. This certification denotes that the individual possesses the knowledge in the principles and terminology of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), which outlines generally recognized good practices in project management. 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.

The PMI website, www.pmi.org, has full details of the applicable fees and how delegates can arrange for the actual exam to be taken at a venue and date that meets their specific needs.

Project Management Framework
Delegates are introduced to the world of projects and project management and to the overall structure of the PMBOK® Guide. The benefits of adopting a formal project management approach will also be outlined.
The 47 PMI processes are grouped into five categories known as Process Groups. The iterative implementation of these collections of activities helps to ensure that the project is delivered in a structured manner.
- Initiating Process Group
- Planning Process Group
- Executing Process Group
- Monitoring and Controlling Process Group
- Closing Process Group
The PMI processes are further grouped into 10 separate Knowledge Areas. These 10 Knowledge Areas are used on most projects, most of the time. The course is structured around each of these Knowledge Areas.
- Integration Management
- Scope Management
- Time Management
- Cost Management
- Quality Management
- Human Resource Management
- Communications Management
- Risk Management
- Procurement Management
- Stakeholder Management
Throughout the course, delegates will be exposed to numerous examples of examination-type questions. We will undertake a number of exercises and 'question-and-answer' sessions that will help to consolidate the learning, thereby ensuring that delegates are adequately prepared for the final examination that can be arranged for a later date in a designated test centre.
Key exam information:
- Three hours long
- Closed book
- 150 multiple-choice questions (typically online)
- Proficiency assessed
PMI®, PMP®, CAPM® and PMBOK® Guide are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.
