PMI-ACP Seminar – Preparation for the Exam

Achieve Agile Project Management Competence according to PMI

Classic and agile project management can complement each other very well. Hence, this PMI-ACP® Seminar (Agile Certified Practitioner according to PMI®) is useful for classic project managers and team members as well as senior staff who either employ agile methods in their projects already or would like to establish them.

The PMI-ACP certification ranks among the world’s most recognized certificates for agile project management. With the PMI-ACP credential, you demonstrate your experience, training and ability in managing and leading agile projects successfully. 

As an Agile Certified Practitioner, you are well-versed in the current methods, techniques, tools and theories for agile project management and are able to use these contextually in projects.

This PMI-ACP Seminar is designed for exam preparation. Of course, the practical relevance still plays an important role. But it has to be subordinate to the exam preparation for the PMI-ACP certificate at all events. 

As an R.E.P., we award 14 PDUs (2 days) or 21 PDUs (3 days) depending on the duration of your seminar attendance.
