PMI-ACP - PMI Agile Certified Practitioner


Duration: 3 days
The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques. It will make you shine even brighter to your employers, stakeholders and peers. 
The PMI-ACP® is our 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. 
The PMI-ACP spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD.) So it will increase your versatility, wherever your projects may take you.


Prepare trainees for obtaining the PMI – ACP certification. Additionally, the course should also help you to:
• Apply agile practices on specific project situations;
• Understand the agile approach, during the requirement, analysis, design, development, tests and deployment phases;
• Understand the challenges of the agile approach in project management;
• Determine if the agile approach is an option considering the project situation and environment;
• Adapt the agile approach;
