Get 23 PDUs (23 hours of project management education)

  1. Take PMI Membership ($109) – This is optional but recommended
  2. Submit CAPM application to PMI
  3. Once approved, prepare for the exam (self-study)
  4. Take mock exams to evaluate if you are ready for the final CAPM exam.
  5. If not ready identify your gaps and work towards them.
  6. Once ready, pay the exam fees and take the date for the exam.

The total effort needed to get CAPM certified varies anywhere between 100 to 250 hours. It depends upon the individual. Based on his experience, exposure, grasping ability, commitment, etc. We go with a 3x3 formula. Three hours daily will need 3 months at the most to crack CAPM. But with that said, we had examples where candidates have done it in less than a month and another extreme where candidates have taken about a year.

The CAPM exam will have 150 questions to be answered in 3 hours (180 minutes). PMI, a few years back, announced a certain percentage as a passing criterion. But later on, they changed and made it more challenging to pass CAPM. And while doing so, they stopped announcing the passing measures. Now with our experience, our assumption is that it is somewhere between 70 – 75%. Also, they have started to evaluate based on many other factors too. E.g. Evaluating individual Process Group wise.

So if you consistently score above 75% in our mock exams, you have an excellent chance of clearing the CAPM exam.
