Class Size Limit: 12 (Minimum 6)
As more and more companies adopt agile project management techniques, there is a need to clearly identify project managers who are capable of applying these methodologies. Both the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Project Management Association of Canada (PMAC) have developed agile certifications designed to provide agile practitioners with the credentials companies are looking for.
This 1-day course provides a review of both the PMI and PMAC agile certification procedures, a
review of the topics covered within the exams, sample exam questions, important studying tips, and additional resources recommended to complete your exam preparation.
Participants should already have formal training in agile methods. This would include introductory courses in agile project management, certified scrum master training, and similar courses.
Both certification exams require a minimum of 21 hours of agile training before writing. This course counts towards 7 of those required 21 hours (you will receive 7 Professional Development Units, PDUs, upon completion).
NOTE: This course has been accredited by PMAC, as meeting its standards and fulfilling the education requirements to write the Certification Agile Project Management exam.
