In addition, students get to take a practice CAPM Exam.


We guarantee that you will pass the CAPM test the very first time!  If you do not pass, we will pay for 50% of one re-test (up to $150 USD), if completed within 30 days of the first attempt and the student successfully completes the remedial instruction provided by the instructor.  This guarantee is only valid if you take the initial exam within 14 days of completing the program.  No guarantee extensions will be granted.
