Essentials of Project Management (CAPM®)  

Overview

Project management is a rapidly growing profession 

Regardless of your career stage, the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® is an asset that will distinguish you in the job market and enhance your credibility and effectiveness working on — or with — project teams. 

 

The CAPM certification offers international recognition to practitioners who are interested in or are just starting a career in project management, as well as project team members who wish to demonstrate their project management knowledge. This certification denotes that the individual possesses the knowledge in the principles and terminology of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), which outlines generally recognized good practices in project management. 

 

Individuals who contribute specialized skills to a project team can benefit from this course by allowing them to align their work with that of project managers. Individuals who do not have project experience but are interested in project management can benefit from this course as well because it demonstrates their professional knowledge. 

 

This knowledge can be applied to on-the-job experiences that help develop growing levels of competence in the practice of project management. Individuals who carry the CAPM designation after their name enjoy a high level of credibility from Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification holders, project managers, employers, and peers.
