Certified Associate in Project Management Training (CAPM)

Certified Associate in Project Management Training (CAPM)

Suppose you would like to manage larger projects and gain more responsibility or add project management skills to your current role. In that case, the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) is right for you.


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 knowledge of 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 do not have project experience but are interested in project management can benefit from this certification because it demonstrates their professional knowledge. Individuals who contribute specialized skills to a project team can also benefit from this certification by allowing them to align their work with that of project managers. This knowledge can be applied to on-the-job experiences that 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 Project Management Professional (PMP) ® certification holders, project managers, employers and peers.

Course Curriculum

  • Education and Experience – A combination of education and/or experience in project management is required for each certification.
