CAPM® Edge - Your Guide to Mastering the Certified Associate in Project Management Exam

About


As a Project Management Institute (PMI)® Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.), IIL has agreed to abide by PMI®-established quality assurance criteria.


Prerequisites

If you are relatively new to project management, it is strongly suggested that you participate in at least one of the following IIL courses to gain a basic understanding of project management. This is primarily due to the nature and depth of content in the course, which is focused on exam preparation. 

  • PM Fundamentals (PMF) 
    • Available online or in the classroom, this course gives you a performance edge by teaching you how to initiate, plan, control, and complete your projects more effectively.
  • PM Fundamentals for IT Professionals 
    • Similar to PMF, but aligned with the classic Software Development Life Cycle approaches to support project managers who function primarily in an information technology (IT) environment.
  • Candidates for CAPM® are required to hold a minimum of a high school diploma or a global equivalent and the applicant can take one of two paths: 1,500 hours of work on a project team or 23 contact hours of formal project management education. The examination is comprised of 150 multiple-choice questions. The allotted time to complete the examination is three hours. The three-hour examination is preceded by a 15-minute computer tutorial, which is not part of the allotted three hours.
