: This course is designed to prepare learners for the Project Management Institute's Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP®) exam by exploring the methodologies, practices, tools, and techniques that Agilists need to master to become proficient practitioners. Students in this course will increase their knowledge of Agile concepts with interactive exercises, vocabulary games, flashcards, and video segments from experienced Agile practitioners. Each student's understanding of key Agile concepts and principles will be tested in several comprehensive module quizzes as well as in two 120-question practice exams designed to mirror the PMI® certification exam process.
The course begins with the Agile Basics and Agile Applications modules from our Introduction to Agile course, as a foundation for students to build on as they prepare for their exams. These modules describe fundamental Agile ideas and concepts, and use Best Practices and Case Studies to explain how Agile methodologies are implemented in real-world situations. The course continues with a discussion and clarification of the key tools, techniques, and strategies that PMI has listed as important for Agile practitioners to understand to achieve their certification. Combining instructional material with real-world application of concepts helps to prepare learners for PMI® certification while simultaneously teaching them to successfully lead teams and complete Agile projects as they continue on their career paths.Instructor Description

: The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques. It will make you shine even brighter to your employers, stakeholders and peers.
The PMI-ACP® is our fastest growing certification, and it’s no wonder. Organizations that are highly agile and responsive to market dynamics complete more of their projects successfully than their slower-moving counterparts — 75 percent versus 56 percent — as shown in our 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report.
The PMI-ACP spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD.) So it will increase your versatility, wherever your projects may take you.
This course does not require any additional purchases of supplementary materials.
