The PMP credential is offered through the Project Management Institute (PMI).

PMP® credential equals higher salary

Pursuing the CAPM® credential

Break into the project management field with the CAPM® certification today!

PMI’s Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) credential is a valuable entry-level certification. This course is designed for those who have little or no actual project experience. The CAPM develops your understanding of the fundamental knowledge, terminology and processes necessary for effective project management. This certification puts you on the right track toward eventual PMP certification once you gain the required level of experience.

Who should participate?

Recommended for students who have completed UD’s Project Management Certificate, or a project management foundation course elsewhere, this class does not provide the 23 hours of project management education requirement needed to sit for the CAPM exam.

If you have limited experience with project management, or need to complete the required project management education in order to sit for the CAPM exam, please register for the Project Management Certificate program first.
