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


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


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.
