Who Should Attend

If you use agile practices in your projects, or your organization is adopting agile approaches to project management, the PMI-ACP® certification may be right for you. The PMI-ACP® recognizes knowledge of agile principles, practices and tools and techniques across agile methodologies.

However, there are some pre-requisites to be eligible for the exam.

Pre-requisite for ACP Training & Exam:

  • Education: Individual should hold a minimum high school diploma or global equivalent
  • Experience: Working in project teams, minimum 2000 hours or 12 months in the last 5 years
  • Experience: Working in project teams using agile methodologies, experience of minimum 1500 hours or 8 months in the last 3 years (These hours are in addition to the 2,000 hours above)
  • Training: 21 contact hours of formal training in agile practices

If you are working in organizations using agile, the PMI-ACP can provide an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge of agile practices. The PMI-ACP is not limited to project managers as individuals with experience working in agile project teams can apply and experience requirements to obtain the PMI-ACP do not reflect the need to manage projects.
