If you enjoy the prestige that
comes from being the best in your field, then youll appreciate
the professional advantages derived from attaining the Project

you have a solid foundation of project management knowledge
that can be readily applied in the workplace.

Certified Associate in Project
As project management grows in
scope, importance, and recognition, so do the related career
and certification options available to you. A logical stepping
stone to the PMP and a boost to your overall professional development
is the CAPM. The CAPM is intended for those practitioners who
provide project management services but are relatively new to
the profession. Obtaining your CAPM can go a long way toward
enhancing your employment and/or project assignment responsibilities
and getting you recognized in the workplace!
Like the PMP, CAPM candidates must
first meet specific education and experience requirements and
then pass an examination.
Examination Preparation Overview
For PMI Certification
Its easier than you think and its about you and
your experience! Candidates for CAPM and PMP certification often
ask, How should I prepare for the exam? Because
the exam is meant to assess the candidate's knowledge acquired
through experience in the field, PMI does not have prescribed
guidelines for a specific course of study. However, PMI has
a number of resources to help you develop a plan of study that
best suits your needs, learning style, lifestyle, and experience.
A number of organizations, including those in PMI's Registered
Education Provider Program (R.E.P.), have prepared materials
specifically targeted for use when preparing for the CAPM and
PMP exams. Simply choose one of the menus to the left, listed
