What is CAPM?
CAPM stands for ‘Certified Associate in Project Management ’. It is a global certification for individuals who want to venture into project management but do not have any prior experience. Rather than validating your project management experience like PMP, it is proof that you have a fundamental understanding of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK).
Having a CAPM certification will distinguish you in the job market and enhance your credibility and effectiveness working on or with project team
What is PMP?
PMP stands for ‘Project Management Professional’. It is a global certification for project management that validates your project management expertise and experience.

The PMP certification is owned and coordinated by the Project Management Institute (PMI), USA.
