CAPM certification, which leads to the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)®, is a globally recognized credential designed to help entry-level project managers gain the knowledge and skills needed to manage large projects and advance in their careers.
CAPM certification is a step toward the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification, and only requires a high school diploma (or associate’s degree or global equivalent) and 23 hours of project management education. PMP certification, by comparison, requires candidates to obtain a post-secondary degree and 4,500 hours of experience leading and directing projects to be eligible.
The CAPM exam is administered by the Project Management Institute and consists of 150 questions, which candidates have three hours to complete. CAPM certification holders need to earn 15 PDUs (Professional Development Units) every three years to maintain their certification.
The Project Management Institute estimates 2.2 million new project management roles will need to be filled each year until 2027.
Common job titles for CAPM certified professionals include Business Analyst and Project Coordinator. Job titles for CAPM certified professionals who hold mid-level positions include Associate Project Manager, Project Manager and, in increasingly senior roles, Senior Project Manager, Deputy Project Manager, and Director, Project Management plus other director-level titles with specialized areas of focus like, for example, Director, IT Project Management.
Salaries of CAPM certified project management professionals in Canada range widely, from $59,000 to $129,000 depending on experience, organization size and industry. The median annual salary of a CAPM certified project manager with fewer than two years of experience is $51,610.
