Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)

PMI’s Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® is a valuable entry-level certification for project practitioners. Designed for those with little or no project experience, the CAPM® demonstrates your understanding of the fundamental knowledge, terminology and processes of effective project management.

Whether you’re a student, new to project management, changing careers, or already serving as a subject matter expert on project teams, the CAPM can get your career on the right path or take it to the next level.

If you’re a less experienced project practitioner looking to demonstrate your commitment to project management, improve your ability to manage larger projects and earn additional responsibility, and stand out to potential employers, the CAPM certification is right for you.

To apply for the CAPM, you need to have:
  • A secondary diploma (high school or the global equivalent)

  • At least 1,500 hours experience
  • 23 hours of project management education by the time you sit for the exam.
If you have gained experience leading and directing projects, you may want to see if you are ready for the Project Management Professional (PMP) credential.

To apply for the CAPM, register and log in to PMI online system to get started. A printable CAPM application form is also available.

As a CAPM certification holder, you do not need to earn PDUs. Instead, you take a re-exam before the end of your five-year certification cycle.
