Preparing for the CAPM® Exam (4 day course)

Request info


This 4 day certification course takes participants through the phases of a project, using the Process Groups and integrative framework adapted by the Project Management Institute (PMI®).  It is suitable for anyone who requires an introduction to the PMI’s approach to project management, particularly those working towards the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM).

The CAPM qualification is aimed at those individuals operating as a member of a project team e.g. subject matter expert, task owner, co-ordinator etc. The qualification demonstrates that the candidate has a working knowledge of the processes and terminology as laid out in the PMI’s “Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge”



Although there are no mandatory pre-requisites for course delegates, the CAPM certification mandates the following prior to sitting the exam and this influences the profile of course attendees:

  • Secondary Education plus 4500hrs experience within a project management team or
  • Secondary Education plus 23 hours of formal project management training (satisfied by this course)
  • Approximately 3 hours of pre course preparation is recommended

Subject to satisfactory PMI validation of the stated pre-requisites, delegates will arrange directly with the PMI to sit the closed-book 3 hours, 150 multiple choice CAPM examination at an accredited test centre on a convenient future date.


Delegates will learn how to

  • have established how all project activities are interrelated within the PMI model
  • know when and how to use the defined Tools and Techniques on projects
  • understand specific PMI definitions, acronyms and terminology
  • feel comfortable with the examination format and typical question styles
  • have gained essential skills necessary to work as a project team
