The Certified Associate in Project Management «CAPM» credential, established by the Project Management Institute is an entry-level certification for project practitioners. Designed for people with less hands-on project experience than PMP, the CAPM demonstrates your understanding of the fundamental knowledge, terminology and processes of effective project management.

If you have several years of experience leading and directing projects, you may want to see if you are ready for the Project Management Professional (PMP) instead.
