About The CAPM® Examination

CAPM Certification and Exam Details

The exam changed on May 21, 2018. Click here for specific details on how this impacts your CAPM Exam preparation study.

In 2003, PMI began offering an additional certification called the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM). The exam for the CAPM® is easier than the PMP® exam, requires less experience to qualify to take it, but covers the same topics as the PMP® exam.

There are two major differences; the CAPM® exam has only 150 questions and it is less situational than the PMP® exam (people going for the CAPM® certification do not have enough experience to answer situational questions). The qualifications for the exam are as follows:

CAPM® Certification Criteria

General Education: high school diploma, associate’s degree or the global equivalent
PM Education: 23 contact hours *
Number of Questions: 150
Exam Length: 3 hours
Sign Code of Conduct: Yes

* CAPM® candidates have the option of either completing the full 23 Contact Hours prior to submitting their CAPM® application and scheduling their exam date OR submitting their CAPM® Application and attesting they will complete the 23 Contact Hours prior to their exam.

Applying for the Exam

More information on applying for the exam is available on PMI’s website. Click the Quicklink on the homepage for CAPM Handbook.
