Which Project Management Certification is Right for You?


CAPM® certification is a step up on the project management career ladder and demonstrates a very high level of knowledge. Project Management Professional (PMP)® is a credential designed for experienced project managers with a proven track record.

If you're unsure about which option is right for you at this moment in time, the following statements may help to guide your choice:

  • The CAPM® certification is intended for those without the level of experience required to apply for and sit the PMP® exam.
  • Those with less than 3 years of experience in project management should look towards CAPM® certification.
  • CAPM® candidates usually use this certification as an important stepping stone in working towards achieving a PMP® credential in time.
  • As the CAPM® certification expires after 5 years, CAPM® certification holders most often use the time to build the necessary experience to attend our PMP® exam preparation training and apply for the PMP® exam.

Still Not Sure?


If you're still unsure about which PMI® certification to work towards, we can help. Our training consultants can advise you on choosing the right option. You can speak with us by calling Freephone 1800 910 810.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is an intensive exam preparation course for those who want to achieve a CAPM® certification.

Over 4 days, we cover broad sections of the PMBOK® Guide and provide you with guidelines on studying and applying for the CAPM® exam.

There are 4 important steps involved in achieving your CAPM® Certification:

  1. Attend training: Begin your exam preparation, learn from experienced trainers, and get the required 23 hours of formal project management training you need to apply for your exam.

  2. Study for your exam: The next step is a study period. This takes an average of 6 weeks (although it can vary depending on how much time you can dedicate to study each week).

  3. Apply for your exam: Usually completed during the study period. Complete the CAPM® exam application and submit it to the Project Management Institute (PMI)®. They will review your application over several days.

  4. Sit your exam: Once you have been approved by the PMI®, you can pay your exam fee and schedule your exam. You have 1 year to complete your exam from the date you receive approval from the PMI®. To help you pass first time, we strongly recommend sitting your exam immediately following your study period.


Using our focused approach to exam preparation, it’s possible to achieve your CAPM Certification within 2 months of beginning training.

There are several factors that may affect this timeline such as how much time you can dedicate to studying and exam date availability.

Yes! CAPM® Certification is internationally recognised and respected. You can read more about the benefits of gaining CAPM® certification in our article, “What is CAPM® Certification?”.

CAPM® Certification is suitable for those who are new to, or do not have much experience with project management.

There are some basic requirements for those who wish to sit the CAPM® Exam:

  • Requirement 1: A High School Diploma (Leaving certificate will meet this requirement)
  • Requirement 2: 23 hours of formal project management education or 1,500 hours of project management experience.

If you would like to ask us anything about the CAPM® requirements, you can reach us at Freephone 1800 910 810 or ask us a question online.

CAPM® Certification and the Project Management Professional (PMP)® Credential are both awarded by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®.

The syllabus covered for both exams is the same and we run our PMP® Exam Preparation Course and CAPM® Exam Preparation Course together.

There are 2 key differences between the qualifications:

  1. CAPM® Certifications do not need any project management experience. Applicants for the PMP® exam must have a minimum of 3 years’ experience (other criteria apply).

  2. The exams differ in content and level of difficulty.

If you’re undecided about which qualification is right for you, we can offer guidance.
