CAPM More Accessible
The CAPM – Now More Accessible than Ever
PMI is partnering with Pearson VUE and expanding the delivery options for the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®). Candidates interested in obtaining CAPM certification now have the option to take an online proctored exam from their home or office. In addition to online proctored testing, candidates still have the option to take the exam at a test center. Pearson VUE has over 5,500 computer testing centers worldwide so there are still plenty of alternatives to make the testing experience as convenient as possible.
Learn more about online proctored testing including FAQs and system requirements here.
