PMI-CAPM Vs PMI-PMP



It has been over four years since I wrote the myths and facts on PMI-PMP examination. It is one of the articles [No. 8], under my Publication section. Sometime before, found it is appropriate to put the myths and facts on PMI-ACP examination, which is mentioned here, along with my experience on PMI-ACP exam.

I see nowadays, the interest for PMI-CAPM is slowly picking up in India. It is not as pronounced as PMP or new kid on the block PMI-ACP, which is fast picking up. Nevertheless, there is substantial interest on it.

Below table gives a comparative view on PMI-PMP Vs PMI-CAPM. It is based on the latest information as on today. 




Note: I consider CAPM to be comparatively easier among three certifications offered by PMI [v.i.z]: PMP, ACP and CAPM. Also, I find PMP is the tougher one to crack between PMP and ACP. So aspirants for CAPM need to take it easy, but need to prepare sincerely to crack the exam.

  1. Hi , I am pondering over attending any PMP prep course / PMP classes to get PMP credentials. What are your thoughts? Would that be worth the money spent professionally?
