PMI-ACP Exam Prep – Live Online Workshop
The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP) exam is a globally recognized certification that is pursued by many professionals. It is considered the fastest growing certification offered by Project Management Institute (PMI).
The PMI-ACP credential formally recognizes your knowledge and understanding of the agile principles. It demonstrates to your peers that you have the skills to internalize an agile mindset and implement practices to benefit your teams and organization.
Based on the PMI examination content outline, this workshop will explore seven performance domains of agile knowledge and outline specific practices, tools, and techniques associated with each domain.

"The last two days I attended the Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Credential 1 course taught by Anu Smalley, CST from The Braintrust Consulting Group. It was a great training with several other seasoned Agile Leaders who are creating change in their teams and organizations. I was reminded that real change takes executive sponsorship, careful consideration, and willing team members. Companies who are committed to putting in the time and allowing the right people to get in the right seats can transform the way an organization delivers. I'm looking forward to using these Agile principles as I build a team who will thrive on a culture of process and system improvement."Chris H., Global IT Solutions
