Why earn PMI Agile Certification?
The PMI-ACP® is the fastest growing certification in PMI history with more than 25,000 certification holders since its creation in 2012. Employer demand is driving career opportunities for certified Agile Professionals. Being a Project Management Professional (PMP)® gets you the interview, however, being experienced in Agile will help you get the job!
The PMI-ACP® certification has become the second largest certification (next to the PMP®) within our chapter. The good news? Most PMP®’s are more qualified than they realize. You may not be using Scrum vocabulary; however, you are utilizing core Agile practices like Rolling Wave Planning, Progressive Elaboration and Decomposition.

Attendance will allow you to earn 16 Professional Development Units (PDUs), then study for your PMI-ACP® certification anytime, anywhere, on-demand at your convenience.
