    The Certified Associate of Project Management (CAPM) is a globally recognized credential that opens the door to opportunities at every stage of your career in the field of project management. The current CAPM certification involves taking a 150-question exam that tests your aptitude in: Fundamentals of project management and the role of project managers, project management environment, and project integration management, project scope, schedule, cost, quality and resource management, and project procurement, communication, stakeholder and risk management. The CAPM certification is an essential first step in building a career as a project manager. It can also aid you in pursuing many of our major certifications including the gold standard PM certification, the Project Management Professional (PMP).

    Overall, whether the CAPM certification is worth it for you depends on your career goals and aspirations. If you are new to project management and looking to start a career in the field, the CAPM certification can be a valuable credential to add to your resume. However, if you already have significant project management experience, you may want to consider pursuing a higher-level certification such as the PMP.

    The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification is an entry-level project management certification that can qualify you for a variety of entry-level project management roles. Some of the job roles that you may be qualified for after obtaining the CAPM certification include Project Coordinator, Project Administrator, Project Analyst, Junior Project Manager, Assistant Project Manager, Project Scheduler, Project Expeditor, Business Analyst, Quality Control Coordinator, or Risk Management Analyst.

    There are several reasons why earning the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification can be beneficial for your career: Entry-Level Certification: The CAPM certification is an entry-level certification and is designed for individuals who are new to project management or have minimal experience. Earning the CAPM certification can help you demonstrate your knowledge and commitment to the profession, which can be valuable as you start your career in project management. PMI Global Recognition: The CAPM certification is offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI), which is a globally recognized organization for project management professionals. Earning the CAPM certification can help you stand out to potential employers and clients who value PMI's standards and best practices. Career Advancement: While the CAPM certification may not qualify you for higher-level project management roles, it can help you gain foundational knowledge and experience in the field. This can help you advance to more senior project management roles over time, with the potential to earn higher salaries. Credential Maintenance: The CAPM certification requires you to renew it every five years by either retaking the exam or earning a higher-level certification, such as the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. This means that the CAPM certification can serve as a steppingstone to earning the PMP certification, which is the most widely recognized project management certification.

    Elite Minds CAPM exam preparation course offers an innovative curriculum designed by industry experts who have rich training experience. They are aware of the different learning needs of students and try to explain all the concepts in a beginner-friendly manner. As a conclusion, our CAPM course is not difficult to follow. It will walk you through basic project management concepts, practices, tools, and techniques in both Agile and Waterfall environments.

    Our course includes access to our e-learning content, practice simulation exams that are close to the real CAPM exam, tips and tricks videos that help you tackle the toughest CAPM exam questions, references to prepare for the exam, and WhatsApp group communication with the course instructor.

    If you have decided to take a formal CAPM exam preparation course, you just need to sign up on our website, select the CAPM exam preparation course: 23 contact hours, and complete the payment to get access to the study materials. You can pay through Credit/Debit cards, or PayPal.

    Starting 25 July 2023, the new CAPM certification exam will be available and will better support you in your career journey. By going beyond A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) the new exam will integrate content across project management including business analysis & agile principles.

    Simple answer: Because our course has been the bestselling in terms of CAPM exam preparation since 2019. Our exam preparation course is aligned with the syllabus covered in the actual CAPM certification exam. Our applied learning approach helps learners understand the concepts better and our instructor is a CAPM -certified who has more than 8 years of experience coaching and preparing students to pass the exam from the first trial. Our CAPM exam preparation course includes access to digital materials, case studies, interactive quizzes, and simulation exams to help you prepare for the CAPM Certification exam and clear it in the first attempt. Also, you will be able to communicate with our instructor through WhatsApp to answer your questions in timely manner.

    When you have completed our CAPM exam preparation course, you will receive a course completion certificate showing the 23 contact hours of project risk management certification which you can use for the exam application. Elite Minds does not administer the CAPM certification, but once you have passed that exam, you will receive the prestigious CAPM certification from the Project Management Institute.

    One hour of our course instruction equals one contact hour. If you have completed a university or college course on project management that met for three hours per week for 15 weeks, you would record 45 contact hours. If only a portion of a CAPM course dealt with project management, only the hours spent on project management can be applied toward the total. PDUs are the measuring unit used to quantify approved learning and professional service activities.

    Participants are granted three chances to pass the CAPM® exam in one year. For the second and the third attempt for the examination, the participants must pay an additional fee of $275 (for members) or $375 (nonmembers) as a reexamination fee. The participants will have a waiting period of one year before they can re-appear for the exam in case, they do not pass in their first three attempts after completion of CAPM training course.

    The new exam will include 150 questions with a 10-minute break to be completed in 3 hours. It can be taken at a test center or as an online proctored exam.

    No. PMI® does not mandate any expiry timeline for contact hours earned to qualify for the CAPM® Exam if you retain the proof (certificate). There is no deadline or expiry date, though the contact hours must have been acquired before the submission of the application to PMI®. For example, if you earn the contact hours in 2020, there is nothing stopping you from taking the exam in 2023.

    You can reach out directly to our instructor throughout WhatsApp +962797205176.

    Yes. Our students can share with us through email: info@eliteminds.co their application draft to review it before formally submitting it through the PMI website.

    The CAPM certificate is valid for three years. To maintain your certification, you need to achieve 15 Professional Development Units (PDUs) in a 3-year cycle.

    First, you need to check whether you are eligible to take the CAPM certification exam. To sit for the exam, you must meet the following CAPM requirements: Have a secondary degree, such as a high school diploma, GED (general educational development), or global equivalent. Have at least 23 contact hours of project management education completed before the exam (PMI’s online Project Management Basics course can help fulfill this requirement). Next, you need to pass the CAPM certification exam to receive the certificate.

    If you are a PMI member, you need to pay USD 60 as a renewal fee. For non-PMI members, the renewal fee is USD 150.

    The CAPM certification exam is quite simple. So, the time it takes to prepare for the exam entirely depends on your prior knowledge and the intensity with which you prepare. If you are dedicated enough, it can take you around twelve weeks for complete preparation with the help of our CAPM training.
