“Who” includes experienced project managers seeking Project Management Professional (PMP) certification and new or junior project managers seeking Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification.
Project managers earn and maintain certification issued by the Project Management Institute (PMI). CAPM and PMP certification is applicable and meaningful to project managers, regardless of their industry or type of project.
- The CAPM certificate requires either (a) at least a high school diploma and 1,500 hours of project experience or (b) 23 contact hours of project management training.
- The PMP certification requires with a college degree, 4,500 hours of experience leading and directing projects over the past 3-8 years and 7,500 hours if you do not have a degree. PMI also requires 35 contact hours of project management training, such as our PMP exam prep classes. By definition, a project is any temporary endeavor that has a start/finish and produces a unique product, service, or result. Lots of things qualify as projects.
