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.
