Anyone take the CAPS online and would like to share your experience? I've had my CAM for almost 15 years and think it's time to add the CAPS to my name.

I took the course through DMAA but it was practically the same as CAM just with more unit counts. The test was also 10 times easier when I took it compared to CAM. It was an online exam and open book.

Very similar experience when I got mine. I did it back to back after my CAM and felt it was pretty much a repeat course for about 60 or 70% of it.

I didn't realize it was open book?

 I took it back in 2015/2016 and it was. It was still timed so you had to know a lot of things without looking it up otherwise you would never get through the whole exam.

I’m taking it now online! So far so good. Just very time consuming

As a CAPS instructor , I would highly recommend you add this certification to your credentials! There will be an updated version rolled out in 2022...but the current version is very good.

CAPS for me, felt like review of the CAM coursework. I’d recommend looking into getting your CPM.

Doing my caps online, I felt like the instructor gave an overview and told us to go read the manual provided. I was pretty disappointed, unfortunately.

Any details on the updated version? Will it be open book? Will it continue to be timed? I’ve been looking into taking CAPS this year so any additional insight is much appreciated. Thank you!
