As Agile project methods become increasingly prevalent in many industries, there is a growing demand for agile practitioners, including Project Managers, Scrum masters, Scrum Product Owners, and team members with proven credentials. Administered by the Project Management Institute, PMI®, the PMI-ACP® Certification exam is intended to provide experienced Agile practitioners with a credential that attests to their familiarity with Agile methods, tools and skills. More and more companies are requiring PMI certifications for newly hired staff and even their existing project teams as a way ensuring their staff possesses the desired capabilities. The PMI-ACP certification extends this practice to the fastest growing trend in project management – Agile Projects.
In this workshop we make the same assumption as the PMI-ACP exam itself, that participants already have the required Agile project experience. This course therefore prepares participants to take the PMI-ACP Certification exam using a highly focused approach - that is, you learn more of what you need to know and do in order to pass the exam, rather than what you need to know to be an Agile Project Manager. To learn the effective project management tools and techniques, we also offer and recommend our TSE036-P5 MANAGING AGILE PROJECTS.
As a PMI Global R.E.P., upon completion, this course provides all 21 of the PDUs – “Contact Hours” which are required to sit for the PMI-ACP exam.
