What

Get your AgilePM certification in just three days. That's 25% faster than traditional training. During the course you'll learn the Agile methodology to optimise productivity and efficiency in your organisation.

Plus, this certification is based on the proven fundamentals of the DSDM Project Management Framework, the current version of AgilePM.

Get the skills required to:

  • Lay the foundations of a successful Agile project
  • Manage agile projects
  • Use different management styles for successful agile projects
  • Integrate Agile with PRINCE2®.

What is Agile Project Management?

An Agile project is completed in small sections called iterations. Each iteration is reviewed by a project team, which includes the client as well as employees. This is done to see what steps to take next in a project. Iterations are usually scheduled to be completed within two weeks.

The main benefit of an Agile project is the ability to respond to issues as they occur during your project. Making changes to a project at the right time saves resources and helps to deliver a successful project on time and within budget.

While on the course, you'll sit both the Foundation and Practitioner exams. The Foundation certification provides you with the core principles needed for a successful project, while allowing a degree of scope and agility. The Practitioner certification gives you further in-depth knowledge on how to apply and implement these principles on any project.

Note: This APMAgile course is provided in conjunction with Thynk, an APMG accredited training organisation.

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a Certification Guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
