Preparing for the CAPM Exam — A 3 day course
This highly interactive 3-day course takes delegates through the phases of a project, using the Process Groups and Knowledge Areas that are detailed by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

At the end of this course, delegates will be able to:
- Define the differences between project and operational work
- List the key initiating activities that help determine whether to start and/or continue with a project
- Create a detailed plan for the project which will include scope, time and cost baselines as well as the management strategies for the project

- Identify, analyse and manage project risks
- Name a number of reporting and control techniques that can be used to help manage the project
- List the interpersonal skills that will help engage and manage the team and other stakeholders

The CAPM certificate is an entry-level qualification targeted at individuals who are new to project management or who require a basic knowledge of structured project management.
The current pre-requisites for undertaking the CAPM examination are listed on www.pmi.org
These are presently either 1,500 hours of project experience or a minimum of twenty-three hours of formal project management training (satisfied by this course).
