PMI’s Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® is an entry-level certification for project practitioners. To apply for the CAPM, you need to have: A secondary degree (high school diploma or the global equivalent) and at least 1,500 hours of project experience, OR 23 hours of project management education by the time you sit for the exam. You will well exceed the 35 hours’ education requirement upon completion of the Project Management Program. The CAPM exam is 150 multiple-choice questions.
Although the program is not a preparation course for writing the PMP or CAPM exams, these exams draw on materials found in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK version 6), which is published by the Project Management Institute (PMI). The course materials in the program are also based on information found in PMBOK version 6. Therefore, the Project Management Program will assist students preparing for the PMP or CAPM exams, by learning tools, techniques and concepts directly related to questions that appear on the PMP and CAPM exams.

I had to adapt during a hard year of learning online at GB. I'm better at studying and learning and I had to practice discipline but I got a lot of support this year from teachers and support staff. The staff were doing their best. I just want to say thanks for that as an international student in Brazil. I'm hoping to see everyone in downtown Toronto next year!
