Get the CAPM® (Certified Associate in Project Management) certified on this all-inclusive 5-day course.

The CAPM is an entry-level project management certification. If you’re interested in building a career in project management by managing and delivering larger projects, then the CAPM is the right certification for you.

The PMI CAPM® certification will give you the knowledge and skills you'll need for effective project management. In just 5 days, you’ll learn how to:

  • Initiate a project
  • Develop a project management plan
  • Create project schedules, cost estimates and budgets
  • Analyse risk
  • Effectively close your projects

Through Firebrand's unique Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you'll gain the knowledge and skills you need at twice the speed. You'll even sit your official CAPM exam during the course.

The CAPM and the PMP® courses are both based on the PMBOK® Guide and cover much of the same course material and syllabus. However, unlike the PMP, the CAPM exam is designed for entry-level project managers.

Are you ready for the PMP?

If you're already an experienced project manager, you may be eligible to gain the professional-level PMP certification through Firebrand's accelerated course.

Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), CAPM, PMP and PMBOK are are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.

Our PMI PMP® course covers 38 hours of training which you can use as evidence for your application. However, this means that you'll need to sit the exam at a later date as your application can be submitted to PMI only after the end of the course.
