CAPM® Training for Teams

Our CAPM® exam preparation course is very popular for in-house (also called 'in-company' and 'on-site') bookings.

In-company is a highly flexible and tailored approach to training. It is utilised by clients who have a number of candidates for CAPM® exam preparation.

By choosing in-company training you gain:

  • Flexibility:

    We select dates that work best for your team’s schedule. You choose the training format (classroom or virtual).
  • Customisation:

    While adhering to the course syllabus, we can incorporate elements of challenges and situations relevant to your organisation.
  • Consistency

    All team members receive the same level of training at the same time.
  • Cost-Savings:

    When you have a number of candidates for training, our in-company pricing model often works out as the most cost-effective strategy.

Find Out More

If you think in-company training may be a good fit for your team’s training, why not get in touch with our training consultants to find out more?

You can reach us by phone on Freephone 1800 910 810 or 01 861 0700 during office hours (Monday – Thursday, 9.00 – 5.30 and Friday, 9.00 – 5.00).

What’s the Right Style for Your CAPM® training?

We offer our CAPM® Course in several different formats. Here’s a quick overview of what’s involved in each one to help you decide on the right route for your training.

  • Classroom Training

    This is in-person classroom training, face-to-face with our trainer and other trainees. It’s an excellent way to immerse yourself in the exam preparation in a dedicated learning environment, with no distractions.
  • Live Virtual Training

    Live virtual training is very much like classroom training, in that you’ll be joining a real-time training session. You’ll connect online from wherever you’re based. This is a great option for those that can’t travel to our Dublin training venues, or who find it more convenient to learn from home.
  • CAPM® Exam Prep for Teams

    This is sometimes called “on-site”, “in-company”, or “in-house” training. It’s a style where we deliver training exclusively to your team. We can do this either in person (classroom) or virtually, depending on what suits you best.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is an intensive exam preparation course for those who want to achieve a CAPM® certification. Over 5 days, we cover sections of the PMBOK® Guide and Agile Practice Guide to provide you with guidelines on studying and applying for the CAPM® exam.

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

  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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 Courses 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. Use the "Which Course for Me' button below to ask for advice, or click to request a call back from our training consultancy team.

The average time for study and exam preparation following training is 6 weeks. This can vary, depending on your schedule.

The CAPM® exam is challenging, but achievable with focus and preparation. Our approach to CAPM® Certification includes plenty of guidance and tips from your trainer.

We also provide 60 days of unlimited access to an online CAPM® Exam Simulator to help you develop the mindset you need to pass first time.
