The PMI® Agile Certified Practitioner® certification recognizes your knowledge of Agile principles, practices and tools and techniques across Agile methodologies, a rapidly growing approach to any project management. Agile is a time boxed, iterative approach to project delivery that builds project incrementally from the start, instead of trying to deliver it all at once near the end.
An Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP)® Certification by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®
- Demonstrates to employers the level of professionalism in agile practices, tools and techniques;
- Increases professional versatility in agile techniques;
- Holds a certification that is more credible than existing entry-level, training or exam-only based offerings.
Method of our ACP® certification preparation
Contrary to most ACP® courses, ours is a balanced mix between theory and the sharing of experience from our trainer's 15 years of software industry experience. Not only you will learn about Agile in a fun and interactive way, but you will be able to pass a very serious exam that will certify your knowledge!
The trainer will also remain available to all participants during the exam preparation for 30 days after the training. After training exam prep support includes e-mail support (Q&As) or video conferences.
The course provides you with the 21 training contact hours necessary to sit the ACP® exam, and you will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.
