We Know You Have Experience
The CAPM Certification Exam Boot Camp is constructed to help project managers master the material needed to obtain PMI’s CAPM certification. It was designed with the recognition that because of the specific requirements of your organizations, practicing project managers (PMs) often have great expertise in some areas but would greatly benefit from the review of the entire project management field.

The Method
This course leads you through the Project Management Life Cycle using the context of the PMI Process Groups. It teaches project management the way it’s practiced, from start to finish. This methodology builds on your existing knowledge base to enable you to adopt the precise language and standardized terminology of PMI, and build real-world project management skills.

Preparing for the Exam
The course examines the specific skills of project management through the lens of the Ten Knowledge Areas. Special importance is given to those concepts which historically have been emphasized by PMI, including memorization of guides and diagrams. Intense question review and focused memorization are an integral part of this section.

Putting it all Together
The CAPM Certification Exam Boot Camp is an intensive 3-day course. You need to come prepared to put in a full day, with study assignments in the evenings. Frequent practice exams, reviews and written exercises will enable you to master the test-taking skills needed for the CAPM examination. In-class practice exams help you learn not only the project management knowledge, but also the nature of the Certified Associate in Project Management exam, the types of questions asked, and the form the questions take. Through practice exercises you will gain valuable information, learn how to rapidly recall important facts, and generally increase your test-taking skills.
