In keeping with Project Management Institute’s goal of providing leadership in the evolution of project management, it has created the Agile Certified Practitioner certification (PMI-ACP). The PMI-ACP is positioned to recognize and validate knowledge of this important approach.

If you are working in organizations using Agile to manage projects, the PMI-ACP provides an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge of Agile practices. The certification is not limited to project managers or Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential holders — individuals with experience working on Agile project teams can also apply.
