About The Course

The Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) is the world’s leading framework and certification for Agile Project Management. The AgilePM® certifications aim to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be agile – providing proven scalability and the ability to work with corporate management processes, supported by a track record of success over many years in IT and non-IT projects.

Agile projects are characterised by highly self-empowered teams delivering products incrementally with a focus on early delivery of real benefits to the business. Unlike more traditional approaches, agile projects fix time, cost and quality at the early phases of the project and manage contingency by developing a clear view of priorities in collaboration with the business.

SkillPoint offers the following AgilePM® certifications:
AgilePM® Foundation, and
AgilePM® Practitioner.

This page is dedicated to AgilePM® Foundation & Practitioner package.

The AgilePM® Foundation provides you with an understanding of the core principles needed to facilitate a successful project using Agile methodology. It will enable you to gain sufficient knowledge and understanding of the Agile, practical and repeatable, methodology in order to adopt it, achieve an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management, and the fast-pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile. The Foundation certification is also an entry requirement for the AgilePM® Practitioner certification.

The AgilePM® Practitioner equips you with the expert knowledge of the Agile principles and techniques to adopt Agile effectively, enabling you to become a professional Agile Project Manager.

The accredited AgilePM® Foundation & Practitioner e-learning course fully prepares you for the foundation and practitioner examinations. It is broken into bite-size sessions, combining leading-edge multimedia and interactive exercises for optimum enjoyment and knowledge retention.
