Agile is becoming one of the most popular, widely-implemented approaches to project management on a global scale. As a result, the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® certification is increasing rapidly in popularity.
The Project Management Institute, Inc (PMI)® is committed to keeping all certifications and credentials both current and relevant in today's project management community.
Therefore, the PMI® is currently developing the Agile Practice Guide to replace the PMI-ACPSM Exam Prep Handbook as the primary resource used to study for the PMI-ACP® Exam. This in turn means that the PMI-ACP® Exam will change.
The new Agile Practice Guide will be released in September 2017, and the updated exam will come into effect in the first quarter of 2018.
This is the most up-to-date timeline available at present. We'll keep you posted on the latest timeline information as it becomes available.
Depending on whether you have already attended PMI-ACP® Exam Preparation training or not, these changes will mean different things for you.
