The CAPM® certification can be an essential first step in building a career as a project manager. It also allows you to position yourself to pursue other key certifications including the Project Management Professional (PMP®) designation.
The Project Management Institute (PMI®) now offers an updated 150-question CAPM® certification exam that covers project management fundamentals and core concepts. Updates to the exam include:
