Pre-requisites: In order to earn your PMI-ACP® certification, The Project Management Institute has the following recommendations and requirements: 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 training hours to be spent in Agile Methodologies & Practices
This course will provide a foundation for the rest of the PMI-ACP® learning path and will enable students to see “Agile” and what is commonly called “Waterfall” in a fresh new perspective: as complementary approaches rather than competitive. They will begin to learn to develop an adaptive approach to project management that blends the two approaches together in the right proportions to fit any situation. This course is part of the PMI-ACP® Agile Project Management series.
