Business professionals around the world recognize the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification as evidence that an individual is familiar with the skills and standards necessary for effective and professional project management.

To achieve the CAPM certification issued by the Project Management Institute, you need to fulfill the following requirements:

After taking these courses you will then be qualified to write the exam administered by the Project Management Institute.
