Understanding the different aspects of the CAPM course certification fee

A Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification will add value to your career, even if the cost seems to be a little steep at first look. Before you consider doing a CAPM certification, you should know about the different cost components involved.

CAPM Certification Cost Components

Professional certifications are important for career growth. Let us look at the components involved in getting a CAPM certification:

Cost #1: Examination Fee

The examination fee is a mandatory fee that you must pay online directly to PMI. If you are a PMI member, you pay $225 for the examination. If you are not a PMI member, you pay $300.

The annual membership fee for PMI is $129.

Cost #2: Re-Examination Fee

You get three attempts in a single year to pass the CAPM exam. The fee for the second and third attempts for members and non-members is $150 and $200.

Cost #3: Recertification Fee

The CAPM certification has a validity period of five years. You can choose to renew the certification before it expires, or afterward. The recertification fee for members and non-members is $150 and $200 if you renew the certificate before it expires.

If you do not renew your certification within five years, the certification process starts as a fresh process for you. In that case, the fee becomes $225 for members and $225 for non-members.

Cost #9: Other Study Material

It will cost about $50 - $100 for any extra study material that you buy for better exam preparation.

FAQs CAPM Certification

Now that you understand the different aspects of the CAPM certification, here are some questions you may be asking yourself:

 

The CAPM certification is costly when you factor in all the possible components involved. However, CAPM certified professionals typically earn $127,000 in the US, C$ 100,000 in Canada, and 9 lakh INR in India.

Apart from the good pay, you will also get an opportunity to network with and learn from experts in the field, be recognized by your peers, and become familiar with best practices for setting project guidelines.

Project Management Institute (PMI) provides accreditation for the CAPM certification. PMI is a global non-profit professional organization in the area of project management

The CAPM certificate is valid for a period of five years, and it expires at the end of the fifth year. You can get re-certified before it expires, in the fourth year and you will have 12 months to appear for the examination. The other option is to appear for the CAPM certification after five years, but this will be a fresh process.

The PMI membership is not mandatory, but you get certain benefits if you obtain membership. The certification examination is available to you at a reduced fee, and you are also able to download a soft copy of the PMBOK guide for free.

    "The Trainer's ability to go the extra mile and answer all questions related to the functions, tools and techniques played an important role in enabling a strong understanding of the P3O model. The trainer was punctual, professional and hands-on managing the interactivity of the session. The excellent course material provided a solid understanding of the P3O concepts. The course flow was organized and easy to follow. I recommend Invensis Learning for their trainings and I will be glad to take another course from Invensis in future."
