PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® Exam Prep Course 


  • In response to the growing relevance of Agile methodology for all Project Managers, the Project Management Institute (PMI®) has begun offering the Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP®) certification exam. The PMI-ACP® is PMI’s fastest growing certification, and it’s no wonder. Organizations that are highly agile and responsive to market dynamics complete more of their projects successfully than their slower moving counterparts - 75 percent versus 56 percent - as shown in our 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report.
  • This PMI-ACP® Exam Prep training course will thoroughly prepare Agile practitioners to sit for and pass the PMI-ACP® exam through instructor-led presentations, class discussions, games, exercises, and practice questions. The course is aligned with the PMI-ACP® Exam Content Outline (ECO) and provides everything needed to pass the exam.
  • Course Duration: 3 days (21 contact hours, enough to meet the PMI-ACP certification education requirements; 21 PDUs applicable to the PMP certification).
