“Being a Project Manager is like being an artist, you have the different colored process streams combining into a work of art” – Greg Cimmarrusti
There has always been a curiosity among the professional community to find out how to get into the shoes of Management. We have seen people looking for alternatives in their career front where they dive in for opportunities that promote them to management roles.
This blog will help all those crazy enthusiasts who want to get into the shoes of managing projects.
So before starting, let’s do a quick analysis of whether you are the right candidate for CAPM
- Does Project Management interest you?
- Are you looking in getting into management roles?
- Do you think you have the expertise, but lack a platform to get into Project Management?
If your answer is YES for all of them, then we say you are a suitable candidate for CAPM.
What is CAPM?
CAPM stands for Certified Associate in Project Management. It is an entry level examination from the PMI (Project Management Institute) for those who want to build their career ladders in Project Management. The entire syllabus of the CAPM is built around the PMI methodology and is elaborated in the PMBOK guide (Project Management Book of Knowledge).
PMI has extended this very useful certification for those who want to start their careers in Project Management. This certification would give you a broad picture of what Project Management is and how it can be leveraged in your professional live, so that you can get started with your brand new career.
Will CAPM help me in my Career Progress?
If you have been wondering if a CAPM will help you progress in your career, then answer is obviously YES.
The best part of this certification is that you do not need to have special skill or professional experience prior to applying for this. In fact, CAPM is quite flexible for all those who need to kick start their careers in Project Management and have little experience in project undertaking.
However, you would need the basic requirements set by the PMI to quality for this certification:
A secondary degree (high school diploma or the global equivalent) AND at least 1,500 hours of project experience
23 hours of project management education by the time you sit for the exam. (It is not required to have this hours from a PMI REP, most of people do not know that)
