CAREER DEVELOPMENT | PMI-ACP Prep Class ( 21 Hours, 3 Days)

pmi-acp.pngIf you’re experienced using agile approaches, have good collaboration skills, eagerly embrace complexity and thrive on rapid response times, then your talents are in demand.

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.

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.

Course Description

The knowledge of agile principles, practices, and tools to support the development of applications has been increasing dramatically over the last several years. Research also demonstrates the value that agile methods can have in increasing delivery of business value and agility, improving team productivity and decreasing product defects.

This class will prepare participants with existing agile experience to pass the PMI-ACP® certification exam and provide the required 21 contact hours.   This course will present the principles, practices, terminology, tools, and techniques associated with major agile methodologies that are covered on the PMI-ACP® exam.  The course also includes on-line flashcards and an exam test bank.

The target audience for this class includes those individuals who want to learn more about agile methods or have only recently been exposed to or involved in agile projects.
