The Project Management Institute (PMI®) sponsors a Project Management Credentialing Program. The purpose and goal of this is the development, maintenance, evaluation, promotion, and administration of a rigorous education, experience and examination-based, professional certification credential of the highest calibre. It is called the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®).

The CAPM® Credential Program supports the international community of Project Management Professionals and is designed to objectively assess and measure professional knowledge. The accreditation is deemed appropriate for those that are either entering project management as a profession or looking for a recognisable project management qualification.

PREPARING FOR CAPM® gives you the foundation, knowledge, techniques and tools to pass the CAPM® exam. This is a course that is based on the PMI® Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) with hands-on exercises of project management best practice and typical exam styled questions.

Course Programme:

The course is broken into the following areas:

  • Project Fundamentals of Project Management and the examination of project management best practice.
  • Project Framework Module. The objective of this session is to introduce the main principles behind the PMI’s project management standard – The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) - and lay the foundations for the structure and content of the project knowledge areas.
  • Project Integration Management Module which examines the areas of project management planning as well as change management.
  • Project Scope Management Module concentrates on the development of scope and how to determine and manage the scope baseline.
  • Project Time Management Module looks at the development, optimisation and management of a timeline. Participants will get a view on estimation processes and the tools and technique that can help.
  • Project Cost Management Module is largely concerned with understanding and managing the cost baseline. Earned Value is a PMI® tool and technique that will be examined in detail.
  • Project Risk Management Module will focus on the management of information from assumptions right through to strategic response plans. Both qualitative and quantitative analysis will be presented.
  • Project Quality Management Module is about how to assure that quality is part of the project and an examination of the quality control tools and techniques.
  • Project Communication Management Module. It is often stated that 90% of project management is about communication and this section will examine how to effectively plan for communication through the acknowledgement of stakeholder responsibilities.
  • Project Procurement Management Module examines the variances of contracting and how to establish an effective contract process
  • Project Human Resource Module is concerned with what is involved in developing a good human resource plan.
  • Project Stakeholder Management Module reviews how stakeholders should be integrated into a project and how to manage the engagement that stakeholders expect

These sessions cover each project management knowledge area to provide participants with ‘a-need-to-know’ for the CAPM® exam.

With each session there is a mock paper based exam that allows participants to measure their performance when answering specific exam-type questions. It also provides participants with an easy guide to what areas might need to be further addressed prior to the exam itself.
