PMP vs CAPM
PMP is for Senior Project Managers whereas, CAPM is the right qualification for Junior Project Managers. The main difference between the two certifications concerns the prerequisits to access the exam and the number of question/timing of the exam itself. The content of the training is the same for both certifications: it’ s a 5 day training, delivered as a classroom event focussing on the 10 knowledge areas and processes of the PMBoK®—6th edition. The PMBoK is the official manual for PMP and CAPM and it contains the foundamental Best Practices that every Project Manager has to know and enact to achieve high quality standards when working in any kind of project. This international guide provides project managers with pivotal tools and techniques essential to manage every stage of the project and to deliver the desired outcome.
