Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP) is a recent and progressive certification from the Project Management Institute (PMI) and it “sets the bar” for agile project professionals! The two main hurdles of achieving certification – completing the application to sit for the exam and passing the exam – are rigorous.
This course will help you sail over those hurdles and go to the next level as an Agile professional with solid, real world practices. You can soon be an agile expert in the eyes of organizational leaders and colleagues. The ACP Certification Prep Course dives into Scrum, XP, Lean FDD, Kanban, Crystal, TDD and Agile Modeling.
