- The exam consists of 200 multiple-choice questions, of which 25 are considered pretest questions. Pre-test questions are randomly placed throughout the exam and do not affect the candidate's score. They are used in examinations as an effective and legitimate way to increase the number of future examination questions. The allotted time to complete the examination is four hours. The four-hour examination is preceded by a 15-minute computer tutorial, which is not part of the allotted four hours
- Upon registering for a course, we will guide you through the examination enrollment process. Once your application has been processed, if eligible, you will receive an eligibility letter (via e-mail) directly from the Project Management Institute. Test candidates have one (1) year from the date their application is approved and processed to take the examination. This date is printed at the top of the first page of the candidate's eligibility letter. Candidates may take the exam a maximum of three times within their eligibility period
- Candidates who pass the exam may use the credential as long as they comply with the Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program. The CCR program supports PMPs in developing their professional knowledge and maintaining their credentials by requiring participation in activities during the CCR cycle, which are assigned a PDU value
- The CAPM exam is a 3 hour multiple choice exam consisting of 150 questions
Please note that the exam is not included in your course or course fee. If you wish to take the exam, we’ll provide instructions on how to register for it.
