What Is Certified Associate In Project Management (CAPM)®? (Part 2)


The CAPM® exam contains 150 questions in total with 15 pre-test questions and 135 scored questions. You have 3 hours to complete the exam with no scheduled breaks as the exam clock will continue to count down during your breaks.

The exam questions are developed and validated by separate groups of project management practitioners and mainly based on the PMBOK® Guide - Sixth Edition. The proportion from each chapter of the PMBOK® Guide is as follows:

PMBOK® Guide –Chapter Chapter Content Percentage of Questions
1 Introduction to Project Management 6%
2 Project Environment 6%
3 Role of the Project Manager 7%
4 Project Integration Management 9%
5 Project Scope Management 9%
6 Project Schedule Management 9%
7 Project Cost Management 8%
8 Project Quality Management 7%
9 Project Resource Management 8%
10 Project Communication Management 10%
11 Project Risk Management 8%
12 Project Procurement 4%
13 Project Stakeholder Management 9%

The percentage refers to the number of questions related to each chapter in the test.

The CAPM® is aimed at the entry-level project managers, so the exam is not as rigorous as the PMP® exam. Besides, you don’t need to report PDUs for continuing education like PMP®. However, after 5 years, you need to retake the exam to maintain the credential.
