Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)®


Organizations with standardized practices perform better, as shown in our 2015 Pulse of the Profession ® report . Because the CAPM ® recognizes your knowledge of the preeminent global standard of the profession, you will stand out to employers and be ready to move forward.

Project management is a fast- growing profession. Research indicates that employers will need to fill nearly 2.2 million new project-based positions each year through 2027. With CAPM, you’ll be on the fast track to opportunities.


Later this year, the CAPM exam is being modified to ensure that it meets the market expectations of entry-level and associate professionals.

Extensive market research has confirmed that today’s project team members work in a variety of environments and use different approaches. The new exam will test the skills needed to understand the fundamentals of project management as well as the principles of predictive, adaptive and business analysis.
