Gaining a CAPM certification can enhance your career options and even boost your salary. Not only will you learn how to better work within a project team and improve your project management skills, CAPM is an industry recognized certification worldwide. As CAPM is suitable for individuals without a lot of project management experience, it’s a great way to get your foot in the door by proving your expertise to employers.

  1. Meet PMI’s prerequisites for CAPM certification of:
    • Secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or global equivalent)
    • 23 hours of project management education completed by the time you sit for the exam (this course provides 26 hours of project management education).
  2. Study for the CAPM exam.
    • Take an online course like GoSkills’ CAPM Certification Training course, complete with exercises and quiz questions to test your knowledge. It is also helpful to review PMI’s CAPM Handbook, and the PMBOK® Guide—Sixth Edition.
  3. Pay the PMI CAPM exam fee and take the CAPM exam.
    • This can be an in-person Center-based exam, or an online proctored exam.
    • The exam has 150 questions, and you have three hours to complete it.
  4. Maintain your certification by retaking the exam every five years.

As of August 28, 2019, PMI has removed the work experience requirement. Prior to this change, PMI required 1500 hours of work experience to qualify.

Your CAPM certification can help you demonstrate your expertise and value to employers, and boost your salary. Project managers who hold a CAPM certification can earn more than their non-certified colleagues. According to recent PayScale data, the average salary for a CAPM certification holder in the United States is $66,000. As CAPM is an entry-level certification, the more practical experience you gain will help set you up for more lucrative positions.

It is not necessarily about which certification is better, but rather which is more suitable for you at this stage of your career.

The PMP certification is suitable for more experienced project managers who already have 3-5 years of experience leading projects, a secondary degree or four-year degree (this varies depending on your years of project management experience), and 35 hours of project management education.

If you meet these requirements, we would recommend you go for the PMP certification, and prep for the exam with the GoSkills PMP® Certification Training course. As the prerequisites are more advanced, the exam topics are more in-depth than for CAPM.

The CAPM certification is ideal for individuals without a lot of project management experience wanting to kickstart their careers and showcase their knowledge to potential employers. If you are new to project management or you do not yet have the necessary work experience, CAPM is a better choice to build up your credentials.

Once you have obtained your CAPM certification, you can gain more project management experience and take the PMP exam at a later date if you choose to.
