    Who Can Apply?

    Being an entry level certification, earning a CAPM credential requires only basic prerequisites. To be eligible to apply for CAPM exam, a professional must:

    • Possess a secondary diploma or high school diploma or its corresponding global credential.
    • 23 contact hours of formal education in project management. These 23 contact hours can be acquired by attending workshops and training sessions, and successfully completing courses by any one of the education providers listed below:
      • PMI Approved Training Partners (ATPs)
      • Education program offered by universities and colleges
      • Distance-learning companies along with assessments at the end of the course

    One hour of professional project management education makes one contact hour. The contact hours may include information on the project’s quality, scope, risk and other important factors such as time, cost, communication, etc. in the field of management.

    An entire university or college degree program is not recorded as contact hours since the whole program cannot include the domain of project management. Only the classes that impart relevant education on project management qualify as eligible contact hours for CAPM.

    How to stay certified?

    PMI ensures that the certified professionals always stay proficient and continue to evolve with the rapidly changing world of management. The PMI Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program guarantees that a CAPM certified professional is constantly equipped to meet and thrive in the current complex business environment.

    Once the professional successfully clears the CAPM exam and earns the credential, the three year certification cycle begins. Within this three-year certification cycle, the professional is required to earn and record 15 professional development units or PDUs to maintain and renew the CAPM credential. The Professional Development Units (PDUs) can be earned through various educational and volunteering activities. 1 hour of education is equivalent to 1 PDU. 

    In addition to the PDUs, the applicant has to pay CAPM renewal fee of:

    • $150 USD if he/she is not a PMI member 
    •  $60 USD if he/she is a PMI member

    The PMI credential will be suspended for 1 year if the professional fails to acquire and report the required 15 PDUs within the 3-year certification cycle.

    The CAPM credential will expire if the professional is still unable to acquire the mandatory 15 PDUs even at the end of the credential suspension period. Once the credential expires, the professional will be required to apply afresh.
