CAPM Certification Eligibility

Knowing what it takes to obtain a CAPM certification

The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification which is an entry-level project management certification has some prerequisites that you should complete before you can obtain it.

CAPM Requirements

Before you can become CAPM certified, there are two CAPM certification requirements:

Educational Background and Qualification

You must possess a high school diploma or a globally equivalent certificate. You need the following information:

  • The name of the institute.
  • The year of graduation.
  • The subject you majored in.

Project Management Education or Relevant Experience

Project Management Education or Relevant Experience

This is a requirement from the Project Management Institute (PMI), the accrediting body, to make sure that people who aspire to get certified, have a solid understanding of the basics of project management. There are two ways in which you can meet this requirement:

You can apply for the examination if you have 1500 hours of relevant work experience on a project team. These hours must be as part of the non-overlapping project group(s) and must be documented by the project and summarized by the process group in order to be considered valid.

You can enroll for a formal project management course of 23 contact hours duration if you do not have enough work experience. The approved sources of project management education are:

  • PMI Registered Education Providers (REP).
  • PMI Chapters
  • Employer or training programs.
  • Training consultants or companies.
  • Distance learning companies that provide a course end assessment.
  • University or college academic and continuing education programs.

FAQs CAPM Exam Requirements

Here are some common questions about the CAPM exam requirements:

 

A contact hour is the equivalent of one hour of classroom training. So, if you attend a classroom session of eight hours duration, which has breaks included, then you can claim that you have done eight hours as contact hours. The training hours have to be from a formal course.

Formal education can mean any one or a combination of the following:

    • Conventional classroom training
    • An instructor-led online training course
    • A self-paced online training course
    • Self-study is not counted as valid for contact hours

The formal education should include content on the areas of knowledge that are defined in the PMBOK Guide from PMI. The knowledge areas include:

    • Project Scope
    • Project Cos
    • Project Time
    • Project HR
    • Project Quality
    • Project Risk
    • Project Communications
    • Project Procurement
    • Project Stakeholder
    • Project Integration Management

This means that you have the time of one year from the date you successfully submit your exam application to appear for the actual certification examination. In case you cannot do so, during this one year, you will have to reapply and begin a fresh application to qualify for the certification.

    "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."
