CAPM stands for Certified Associate in Project Management
Obtaining your CAPM may seem un-necessary, but remember; CAPM is recognized worldwide as proof of project management competency. The CAPM certification can also provide a stepping stone towards becoming a PMP (Project Management Professional).
If you have enough experience in project management, (or education + experience) you can train and test for the PMP. If you don’t have the needed education and experience to sit for the PMP much benefit can be had by obtaining your CAPM .
Obtaining a CAPM will improve your project skills, and likely improve your salary.
Just having the CAPM training alone can also help in your personal life by applying the project management skills of time management, budgeting, planning, and financial planning. All of these skills are beneficial to any industry or personal endeavor.
At Project Masters, we offer CAPM & PMP training classes with hands on instruction and study materials. A book titled, CAPM/PMP Project Management Certification Exam Guide, by Joseph Phillips is included in our CAPM/Prep course. The author keeps the material interesting, and includes practice tests at the end of each chapter.
So even if you’re considering a career upgrade in project management, the CAPM/PMP are the best places to start.
