Certification Associate in Project Management CAPM Exam Prep Course


While the Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential is targeted at experienced project managers, the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) does not require previous project management experience.  The CAPM eligibility requirements are:

  • High school diploma, associate’s degree, or global equivalent Plus
  • 23 hours of formal project management education


Having satisfied the eligibility requirements, a CAPM-candidate must sit a 3-hour 150 question exam.  The exam tests the candidate’s knowledge of the Project Management Institute’s (Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)).   Upon successfully passing the exam, the candidate becomes a CAPM for a period of three years.  During those three years 15 Professional Development Units (PDUs) must be earned to retain the CAPM designation.  (CAPM Certification Handbook from PMI)


The key to passing the exam is to understand the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) view of project management.  This means reviewing and understanding PMI’s PMBOK® Guide, but also becoming familiar with how PMI expects project managers to apply that knowledge.  In most cases, this requires CAPM-candidates to become familiar with new concepts during their preparation, and/or to “unlearn” practices that they have picked up over the years.


Who should take this CAPM Prep course?


  • Individuals wishing to obtain an international credential demonstrating an understanding of the fundamental, best practice, project management knowledge defined in the PMBOK® Guide.
  • Entry level individuals wishing to enter the project management profession.
  • Individuals looking to advance their standing as project management subject matter experts.
  • Individuals working in support of a project management office.
  • Project stakeholders intending to serve as a sponsor, facilitator, liaison, or coordinator.
  • Project managers desiring a professional certification, but lacking the experience for the PMP certification.
  • Part-time project managers looking to formalize their project management skill-set and be recognized for their project management knowledge.

    I appreciate that you explained things clearly, used lots of examples – especially making them specific to me.

    Well organized material. Great pace. Easy to understand. Great course. Must better than classes taken elsewhere.

    I attended Key Consulting’s CAPM/PMP Exam Prep bootcamp course in February 2018 while studying for my CAPM. The material was presented in a logical and easy-to-follow manner. As a presenter, Kevin does well at keeping participants actively engaged and provides helpful hints to remember certain material. The information presented was more than enough for the CAPM which I earned on the first try on March 26 and will serve as a helpful foundation for my continuing studies toward the PMP with the PMBOK6. Highly recommend this course!
