Course Description

What the PMI-ACP and Agile are Not
Considering four of us at LeadingAgile were involved in the creation of the ACP, who do you think is most qualified to teach a class to prepare you for it?  In this three-day workshop, you can expect a lot more than just preparation for the PMI-ACP (Agile Certified Practitioner) exam.  We’re going to give you the strategies you can apply in the “real world”.  If you choose to sit for the exam, you will pass because you understand the concepts, not because you memorized questions and answer.

Class Materials

Attendees will receive a complementary copy of the class training material and unlimited access to our  online ACP practice exams.
