Whether you are new to a Project Management role, interested in making a career change to Project Management or just want to start building your certification portfolio, achieving a CAPM® certification is the place to start.
CAPM – Certified Associate in Project Management gets you grounded in some of the key principles of Project Management. From the discussion of triple constraints (Time, Cost and Quality) moving into Resource Management, and then ending with Communications and Stakeholder Management, the CAPM® gives you the full picture of a Project Management.
….And taking the CAPM® exam prep course at UConn/CITI gives you more than just a class. With a strong sense of community, all students are invited to participate in Study groups after training to further their understanding of the material and allow the concepts to “roll of their tongue”.
