Hello All,

I am Jignesh Rupareliya and pursuing IT Business Analysis Operations course from Conestoga College, Kitchener.

I am planning to start with the Basic Certification of PMI i.e CAPM, as I have 23 hrs of Project Management Studies. I too have 3 years of work Experience back in India, but it was into Business Development.

Can anyone guide me through materials to be read for CAPM. I have got PMBOK with me.

Any online sites or materials to refer and also how this would help me in my BA role out in corporate world after a year?

Thanks,
Jignesh Rupareliya

Getting PMI CAPM® Certified in 5 Steps:

Regardless of your career stage, the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® is an asset that will distinguish you in the job market and enhance your credibility and effectiveness working on — or with — project teams.

Organizations with standardized practices attain better results, as shown in our 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report. Because the CAPM® recognizes your knowledge of the profession’s preeminent global standard, you’ll stand out to employers and be poised to move ahead.
Project management is a rapidly growing profession. Through 2020, 1.57 million new jobs will be created each year and qualified practitioners are in demand. With the CAPM, you’ll be on the fast track to opportunity.
Who Should Apply?

If you’d like to manage larger projects and gain more responsibility or add project management skills into your current role, then the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) is right for you.

CAPM Exam Guidance

To earn your Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® certification, you need to meet the experience and education requirements, and pass the CAPM® examination, a 150-question, multiple-choice test.

Regardless of how advanced your project experience or education might be, you should still prepare vigorously for the exam. Successful CAPM candidates typically use multiple study aids — including courses, self-study and study groups — and will spend many hours to prepare, so make sure you leave yourself plenty of preparation time before you take the exam.
