CBT Nuggets – Certified Associate in Project Management – CAPM – PMI Certification Training [FCO]
CAPM Online Training
This entry-level PMI CAPM® training covers the objectives in the CAPM® exam, which is the one required exam to earn the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® certification.
When it comes to project management, the Project Management Institute (PMI) is one of the older and better established certifying bodies. Their entry-level Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® is an industry standard certification for anyone whose job includes planning, scoping, maintaining, and administering a project’s life cycle. A CAPM® is highly familiar with PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)® and leverages it to plan out a project’s life cycle and then manage the scope, schedule, cost, quality and communication throughout. Prepare yourself for the CAPM® certifying exam with this training that covers each chapter of the PMBOK® and make you a leader in managing projects.
For anyone who manages project management practices training, this CAPM® training can be used for CAPM® exam prep, on-boarding new project managers, or as part of a team training plan.
CAPM: What You Need to Know
For any project manager using this training for exam preparation, our Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® course maps to the PMI CAPM® exam objectives, and covers topics such as:

– Integrating a project’s plan into an organization and maintaining its scope

Who Should Take CAPM® Training?
This CAPM® training is considered professional-level PMI training, which means it was designed for project managers. This project management skills course is designed for project managers with three to five years of experience with project management.
New or aspiring project managers. One of the hurdles many new project managers face is the decision of whether or not to get an industry certification. The beauty of the CAPM® is that it identifies, breaks down, and standardizes each step and aspect of managing a project — the beauty of our training is that we make all of that understandable and approachable. After this training, you’ll be trained to the PMI standard and ready to certify as a project manager, a certification that translates more readily than experience and good judgement.
Experienced project managers. Experienced project managers are usually familiar with a lot of what gets covered in the PMBOK®, but lack the methodical understanding that formal training provides. If you’ve managed projects, you probably know how about managing scope, costs and communications with stakeholders. But after this training, you’ll have a trained understanding of how they interact with one another, and the way that PMI expects a Certified Project Management Associate (CAPM)® to implement them.
