Below are the certifications offered by PMI institute. We will talk about PMI-ACP here.
PMI offers PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) certification to practitioners working on agile projects. Agile basically refers to the delivery of the software in a cumulative way i.e. in smaller sprints rather than delivering the entire module at the end, in order to facilitate timely checks. PMI-ACP certifies that the practitioner is highly skilled in managing complex projects with agile approaches.
Agile methodologies demand a dynamic outlook with the capability to undertake a real-time job. Accordingly, PMI-ACP is suitable for all the candidates working in a company that is steadily progressing towards agile practices. Since this certain is curated by agalists for future alagists, it is a perfect fit for the corresponding job profile.
The overall cost for the certification depends upon the PMI membership status of the candidate. Moreover, it is also dependent upon whether it is a center-based test/ online-proctored test or a paper-based test.
Center-Based Testing (CBT)/ Online-Proctored Testing (OPT)/ Paper-Based Testing (OPT)
US$435.0 (Member) | US$495.0 (Non-member)
Classroom Training | Online Training
US$1500.0 | US$200.0
Similar to other PMI certifications, PMI-ACP certification is also valid for exactly three years from the date of the certification. For instance, Paul got his certification on 10 July 2018, then it will be valid until 10 July 2021. However, the credential can be renewed by accruing 30 Professional Development Units (PDU) in Agile Concepts.
Typically, it would take about 120 hours to prepare for the PMI-ACP examination. However, this is flexible as the preparation time is also dependent on the previous agile experience.
