Certified Associate in Project Management CAPM

5 days

Launched in 2003, the CAPM recognizes individuals with a demonstrated understanding of the fundamental knowledge, processes and terminology as defined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide), the standard of project management’s good practices. The CAPM credential candidate contributes to a project team as a subject matter expert and may also serve as a sponsor, facilitator, liaison, or coordinator. These project team members assume full or partial responsibility for individual project tasks in their areas of expertise (e.g., finance, marketing, legal), which may not be industry-specific, but relevant across many functional areas and industries.
