Course Overview

Today, more organizations and companies are adopting the Agile approach over a more traditional waterfall methodology, and more are working every day to make the transition. 

To stay relevant in the competitive, professional world, it's increasingly important that professionals can demonstrate true leadership ability on today's software projects. The Project Management Institute's (PMI)® Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® certification clearly illustrates to colleagues, organizations or even potential employers that you're ready and able to lead in this new age of product development, management and delivery.

This PMI-ACP training course provides a proven combination of class learning and testing that prepares students for some of the most difficult of testing situations. Questions are designed to allow you to learn through practice so that you will be able to apply what you have learned for the exam.

The International Consortium for Agile has worked with experts around the world to develop an education roadmap of training and certification for all specialties involved in Agile development. This course has been approved and earns all students the ICAgile Certified Professional designation upon completion of the course.
