7 PDUs

In keeping with its goal of providing leadership in the evolution of project management, the Project Management Institute has created the Agile Certified Practitioner certification (PMI-ACP). The PMI-ACP is positioned to recognize and validate knowledge of this important approach.

If you are working in organizations using Agile to manage projects, the PMI-ACP provides an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge of Agile practices. The certification is not limited to project managers or Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential holders — individuals with experience working on Agile project teams can also apply.

The certification is for practitioners who are seeking to:

  • Demonstrate their level of professionalism in Agile project management practices to employers
  • Increase their professional versatility in both Waterfall and Agile techniques

SolutionsIQ’s one-day PMI-ACP training course helps meet the training contact hours required for credential eligibility. This course may be taken as a standalone class or in conjunction with either our Certified ScrumMaster Training (CSM) or Certified Scrum Product Owner Training (CSPO). Attendees are qualified for 7 Professional Development Units (PDUs) for the one-day class. When taken in combination with our CSM or CSPO course, attendees are eligible for the 21 contact hours required for PMI-ACP certification.
