The Project Management Institute (PMI)® requires that you verify 21contact hours of training in agile practices before you can apply for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam. Agile training can include topics covering agile philosophy, methodologies, principles and practices. All such training hours are valid, no matter when they were accrued. The training must be completed before you can sit for the examination.
The Agile PrepCast™ offers substantially more than 21 hours of distance learning in agile practices and qualifies towards this requirement. In order to receive your 21-hour certificate, you must pass our end of course assessment, which we call our “Final Exam”.
The earliest that you can take the final exam is 14 days after your purchase. These two weeks should give you ample time to watch all lessons.
Taking the final exam takes just a few steps:
- Go to http://www.project-management-prepcast.com/login
- Log in using the username and password that you have received
- Write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you cannot remember
- Hold your mouse over the “PMI-ACP® Exam” menu at the top
- Click on “Agile PrepCast Final Exam” from this menu
- Watch the video that shows how to take the Final Exam
- Take and pass the exam
- Print your certificate
The Final Exam is a 25 question, multiple choice exam. You must answer 17 questions correctly to pass. Just like on the “real” exam we will not tell you the correct answers.
There is no time limit for you to take our Final Exam. You can take it after 2 weeks, 2 months or even wait for a year. Also, you can take the final exam as often as you need until you pass.
Please note: If you would like to learn more about what does and does not count towards your educational hours, then please read our Complete Guide about the PMP 35 Contact Hours Online Training. The article is written from the perspective of the PMP exam, but the rules that govern contact hours are exactly the same for for all PMI exams. So when you read the article, just replace "PMP" with "PMI-ACP" in your head.
