What Will Be Taught For This Agile Certified Practitioner Course?

This course is aimed at people who work in Agile teams and want to obtain the PMI-ACP® certification. The objective of this 3-day Agile training in Singapore is to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to pass the PMI-ACP® examination, and to successfully apply Agile practices in their organization.

Candidates will learn more than the basics of Agile during this course. Candidates will also understand the underlying principles and specific techniques needed to help your team achieve project success.

The Agile methodology is more adaptive, peopleoriented and focuses on constant input and cyclical change, which opens the door for continuous improvement during the project. This, as opposed to the more process-oriented, sequential, predictive structure of traditional project management as defined by the PMBOK® Guide.

Sign up for the course to receive Agile certification in Singapore.

About PMI-ACP® Exam (Exam fee charge separately)

  • Candidates need to meet PMI’s requirements for PMI-ACP® certification (as listed below).
  • The PMI-ACP® examination consists of 120 multiple-choice questions. Of the 120 questions, 20 are considered pre-test questions. These pre-test questions do not affect the score. They are simply used in examinations as an effective and legitimate way to test the validity of future examination questions.
  • All pre-test questions are unmarked and randomly placed throughout the examination.
  • The time allotted to complete the examination is four hours and is computer based. Pass/Fail results are provided at the conclusion of the examination.
  • There are no scheduled breaks during the examination. Candidates are allowed to take break(s) if needed. However, the clock continues to count down during the break.
  • Candidates can only purchase the exam at PMI as part of their registration process, as training providers such as COMAT cannot sell the exam vouchers directly to the candidates.
  • For more information, please review the PMI-ACP® Handbook.
