For PMs who desire certification but do NOT have the required pre-requisites for the PMP, the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) program is a great alternative! The CAPM designation following your name tells current and potential employers that you have a solid foundation of project management knowledge that can be readily applied in the workplace. And it shows that you have passed a comprehensive test based on the PMBOK from PMI, very similar to the PMP exam, but geared toward PMs with less experience.
To be eligible for CAPM certification, students must have EITHER 1,500 hours of PM experience OR 23 hours of PM Education (but they DON€™T need both). This means that upon successful completion of this class, high school graduates (or equivalent) are eligible to take the CAPM Exam, a multiple-choice test designed to objectively assess your project management knowledge.
Unitek Training’s Advanced Project Management Skills for Success CAPM boot camp is designed to provide the essential skills and knowledge needed to pass PMI’s CAPM exam. The CAPM boot camp focuses on content from the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, Fourth Edition (PMBOK Guide) as well as practice exercises and quizzes plus many proven study and test-taking tips.
