Join our Scrum/Agile training Certification classes in New Jersey. 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 certification was created as a designation for professionals experienced in the agile methodologies and tools used for managing projects. Agile practices, which differ from conventional project management techniques in a number of ways, are often used in software development but can be found in a number of other industries, as well.
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.
Avtech PMI training provides you with the foundation to drive Scrum management and Agile practices both within your workgroup, as well as across your company.
An Agile project manager emphasizes facilitation, leadership and communication over traditional command-and-control activities. The ScrumMaster's role is to maximize the team's efforts toward its goals while removing the impediments that stand in its way.
2,000 hours of general project experience working on teams. A current PMP®® or PgMP® will satisfy this requirement but is not required to apply for the PMI-ACP.
1,500 hours working on agile project teams or with agile methodologies. This requirement is in addition to the 2,000 hours of general project experience.
21 contact hours of training in agile practices.
If you work on agile teams or if your organization is adopting agile practices, the PMI-ACP is a good choice for you. Compared with other agile certifications based solely on training and exams, the PMI-ACP is evidence of your real-world, hands-on experience and skill.
During class, participants will be introduced to PMI Agile concepts and practices with banks of sample questions. Additionally, participants will apply agile principles directly to a real-world project taken directly from their industry.
