Overview
What is it about?

More and more companies expect an agile certification from their software project managers. This shows that potentially a high quantity of the software projects follow an agile process model. While the traditional project management methods answer the question "what", the agile project management methods answer the question "how".

Concept
Content

The Project Management Institute (PMI®) follows industry best practice standards for the (PMI-ACP)® exam. Compared to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) there is no similar, authoritative guide for the agile frameworks or body of knowledge. For the (PMI-ACP)® exam, the PMI® announced a list of 12 books, written by various experts from the agile sphere. This collection of work covers little less than 5’500 pages.

We have analyzed, integrated and aligned the content of those 12 books, in order to create a comprehensive, usable and accessible exam preparation. We have also identified where the 12 books have opposing, conflicting, or varying views, interpretations or recommendations. The result is a comprehensive preparation for the (PMI-ACP)® exam.

How does it work

The virtual training is organized in 16 theme lessons, covering 30 hours of web conference, including 15 minutes of exam question study. The topics are introduced by the trainer and discussed in the group.

The 1st lesson is the introduction session and is free of charge.

All the lessons are recorded and available for review afterwards. However, a presence of 75% is required for fulfilling the exam prerequisites.
