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.

The nursing program is more challenging than other schools, and there is no point in studying here as you will not get paid more for more challenging studies. This program is more difficult because I compared my school work with a friend who went elsewhere. George Brown's nursing faculty are also not good; quite a few instructors and coordinators do not care about students- there are many many traumatized students from their experience with GBC nursing faculty.
