January 23-24, 2014 21 Hours / 21 PDUs • Pre-work Required!

Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP®) is the newest certification from the Project Management Institute (PMI®) and it “sets the bar” for agile project management professionals!  That also means that the two hurdles stand in front of you – completing the application and passing the exam – are rigorous.  Luckily this course helps you sail over those hurdles and go to the next level with solid, real world practices.  Remember, after you have passed the exam you must meet the raised expectations of your boss, co-workers, and customers as an agile expert!
