Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® Qualifications and Training

You have to apply to the Project Management Institute (PMI)® before you can sit the exam. There’s a strict protocol as they have to authenticate that the pre-requisite criteria has been met prior to exam attendance. In order to understand the PMI process we recommend you review the CAPM handbook on the PMI website.

Pre-requisites

To apply for the CAPM examination, you need to have either:

  • A secondary diploma (high school diploma/global equivalent) and 1,500 hours of professional experience on a project team or
  • A secondary diploma (high school diploma/global equivalent) and 23 contact hours of formal education

The CAPM exam is not included with ILX courses.

​Exam format

  • 150 multiple-choice questions. Of the 150 questions, 15 are considered pretest questions. Pretest questions do not affect the score and are used in examinations as an effective and legitimate way to test the validity of future examination questions. All questions are placed throughout the examination randomly
  • Three hour duration
