CAPM Exam Guidance
To earn your Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® certification, you need to meet the experience or education requirements, and pass the CAPM examination, a 150-question, multiple-choice test.
Regardless of how advanced your project experience or education might be, you should still prepare vigorously for the exam.
Successful CAPM candidates typically use multiple study aids — including courses, self-study and study groups — and will spend many hours to prepare, so make sure you leave yourself plenty of preparation time before you take the exam.
