A secondary degree (high school diploma or the global equivalent)and At least 1,500 hours of project experience or 23 hours of project management education by the time you sit for the exam
As a CAPM certification holder, you do not need to earn PDUs. Instead, you take a re-exam before the end of your five-year certification cycle.
