Course Details

The purpose of this course is to prepare project team members and managers to take the Certified Associate in Project Management CAPM course (Certified Associate in Project Management) certification examination. The emphasis is on PMI® (Project Management Institute) best practices for project management across the continuum from predictive through adaptive life cycles as proposed in the 6th edition PMBOK® (Project Management Body of Knowledge). The course provides the student with the information required to understand the concepts that will need to be applied in an analytical manner to answer examination situational questions. It is expected that the student will review these lessons and use practice questions and flashcards to finish preparing for the examination.

Our CAPM course provides you with the necessary 23 hours to take your CAPM exam. The CAPM course certification validates that project managers have the necessary skills to complete projects on time and within budget. The exam covers the entire project life cycle from initiation and planning through execution, acceptance, support and closure. Project managers are in high demand in the IT industry and are one of the higher paying sectors within IT.

This CAPM course includes the following features:

  • Designed in line with the syllabus for the Sixth Edition of the PMBOK (2018).
  • Instructor-led demonstrations and visual presentations to develop your skills based on real-world scenarios.
  • Unlike a live class, you can fast-forward, repeat or rewind all your lectures. This gives you all the benefit of hands-on training with the flexibility of doing it around your schedule 24/7.
  • FlashCards and Education Games are also provided throughout the course.
  • Practice exams prepare you for your exams. These exams are on average 100 questions to ensure you are 100% prepared if you are taking a certification exam.
  • You can also interact and collaborate with other students through our forums, student contributions and announcement features.
