What Is CAPM Or Certified Associate In Project Management?

CAMP or Certified Associate in Project Management is a globally recognized entry-level exam under Project management. CAPM exam is accredited by the PMI or project management institute. 

Project management is one of the most rapidly growing professions, if you are someone who wants to possess a career in project management with limited work experience, then, CAMP certification is something that you should really consider. 

Getting a CAMP certification is any day an added advantage to your resume.

ABOUT CAPM CERTIFICATION EXAM

The CAPM certification exam is validated by a psychometric test for analysis. The CAPM certification exam consists of 150 multiple choice questions and the duration is 3 hours.

CAPM certification cost: Per April 2019, The CAPM certification cost is 225 USD if you are a PMI part and 300 USD in case you're not. Suppose a candidate fails to clear the exam on the first attempt, then he gets 2 more chances. The reconsideration charge is 150 USD for PMI individuals and 200 USD for non-individuals.

Going further the next question that would arise is, could one be able to answer 150 multiple choice questions in 3 hours? Well, the answer is YES provided you have had CAPM exam preparation up to the mark. An approximate 50-60 CAPM education hours with sheer dedication can help you get through the exam on the first attempt.

If a person wants to study only during the daytime and consider a break on weekends with CAPM certification preparation, then it will take 9-10 weeks of CAPM preparation to cover the CAPM prep course syllabus.

How to Prepare for the CAPM Exam?

The CAPM exam preparation can be challenging at times without proper study plans. The majority of the candidates fail due to a lack of strategy, course plan, and time management.

The CAPM prep course can be covered within the timeframe of the basic period study duration having a set focus and stiff determination.

With ideal CAPM preparation tactics, anybody can crack the CAPM exam in the first attempt. That said, it’s always good to invest specific time to how to tackle CAPM certification preparation. In spite of how advanced the CAPM prep course plan might be, one should still stick to the right CAPM exam preparation. Unravel the best tips below for CAPM preparation.

1) Adapt Smart Work with Hard Work

The first thing that one should do with CAPM certification preparation is to have a study plan! A plan for the CAPM prep course is needed so that it would draw ideas to topics of more weightage. Assign more time to dedicated topics as per weightage during your CAPM exam preparation routine.

Secondly, take up online CAPM certification training that includes mock tests at the end of the CAPM preparation course.

This will help you to evaluate where exactly you stand and how much more CAPM certification preparation is required for you to reach the target.

The passing score of the CAPM exam is said to be 61% however I would suggest you strive for a minimum of 80 % on your CAPM certification.

2) Having a Good Hang Of Project Management Principles

The best CAMP study materials available are the Standard guide on Certified Association in Project and Principles of project management are included in a guide to the Project Management Body Of Knowledge (PMBOK guide).

This CAMP study guide includes learning project management and its process in each aspect, as well as integration, scope, cost time, quality, risk, communication, and so on. Having a clear picture of each of these concepts during the CAPM prep course can ensure success in your CAPM certification exam.

Prepare and revise the entire PMOBOK guide at least three times from the initial to the last process of CAPM preparation.

It is totally fine for people who prefer one single CAPM-certified study material with their CAPM exam preparation rather than heaps of books. But it is important to be perfect with what you’ve learned during CAPM certification preparation.

3) CAPM Exam Preparation Courses

There is an ocean of pre-CAPM training courses and CAMP classes available on the web. But choosing the right CAPM training program with the best CAPM prep course guide is the biggest task. CAPM online training courses can cost up to INR 15,000.

Having an experienced instructor to CAPM prep course guide would make the CAPM exam preparation course a cakewalk.
