PMI® Project Management Institute Certification courses
To build a successful career in project management, it is essential you start on your learning journey with a project management certification course awarded by the PMI® Project Management Institute.

PMI® (USA) are the leading Project Management accrediting body and globally recognised by national and international companies.  Participants with no prior experience may do the CAPM certification as it is entry level PMI certification in the practice of project management.

CAPM Certification courses Ireland
CAPM stands for 'Certified Associate Project Manager'.  This certificate is awarded by PMI when you have successfully attended 25 hours of live online classes and passed a 3-hour computer-based test.

It is an ideal entry level course in Project Management which covers the core basics of how to plan, implement and evaluate a project from start to finish. Using proven PMI PMBOK concepts, you will be able to apply what you learn in a structured manner to achieve success with projects every time.

A unique approach that gets you the result
CMI's unique incremental approach to learning allows you to apply what you learn each week over a 10-week timeframe. This CAPM ® programme deliberately avoids the intensive "boot camp 4-5 day approach", offered elsewhere which results in higher failure rates and additional repeat costs. CMI's incremental approach ensures you are well prepared to pass the CAPM® test on first attempt.
