PMP Syllabus and Dates

The PMP® and the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® qualifications are based on the same syllabus, which is the Project Management Institute, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc., 2013. Hence, the knowledge base for both the credentials is the same. However, the CAPM® certification exam is structured as an entry level exam for PMP®.

The PMP exam is based on the PMP Examination Specification, which describes tasks out of five performance domains:

  1. Initiating the project
  2. Planning the project
  3. Executing the project
  4. Monitoring and controlling the project
  5. Closing the project

The exam consists of 200 multiple choice questions written against this specification.

Mapped to these five process groups are ten project management Knowledge Areas:

  • Project Integration Management
  • Project Scope Management
  • Project Time Management
  • Project Cost Management
  • Project Quality Management
  • Project Human Resource Management
  • Project Communications Management
  • Project Risk Management
