As an experienced PMP who is planning to seek the PMI-ACP certification, I recently took the ASPE Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)℠ Workshop and was extremely pleased with its overall structure and content. In fact, I was so pleased with this workshop, which was also my first ASPE course, that I decided to post this blog to share my thoughts and reactions regarding it, including why I would encourage my fellow PMPs to earn their PMI-ACP certification and consider ASPE for their preferred training partner.
If you’re not familiar with this new certification, PMI recently created it to recognize PMPs that have demonstrated their working knowledge of the major principles, practices, and methodologies of agile project management. In fact, according to www.PMI.org, a PMP in good standing must have at least 1,500 hours working on agile project teams or with agile methodologies, in addition to the overall hours of general project management experience, to qualify for this certification. Also, a PMP must also have had 21 contact hours of training, which is satisfied by taking this class, which earns you exactly 21 PDUs. Click to continue »
