AgilePM Introduction

Take this excellent opportunity to gain or formalise your project management skills with a AgilePM Weekend in-depth classroom delivery.

Note: The training events are either 'In-Person' for physical attendees or 'Attend from Anywhere' for remote learners who attend live sessions. We don't have Remote and In-Person attendees on public courses as online and classroom training have widely differing instructional and timing requirements for optimal learning.

AgilePM Weekend Course: Adopt a practical and repeatable methodology that achieves an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management, and the fast-pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.

This AgilePM instructor-led training course maps to the AgilePM Syllabus - helping you to prepare for the exams. Learners gain the knowledge and skills at AgilePM Foundation level and for those attending the extended session, Practitioner level also. Learners will be provided with focused pre-study materials which need to be completed before the course. Some evening study will be required during the course to assist in preparation for the exam(s) and to keep in step with the class.

Here are some key features of our AgilePM Weekend Courses - compare and contrast with other providers:

  • 100% Foundation Pass Rate for our In-House Trainer

AgilePM Certification and Related Examinations

There are two levels of exam: Foundation and Practitioner.

Classroom Course Examinations

For the AgilePM Weekend In-Person courses, the exams are typically taken at the end of each weekend's training session. Typically, the Foundation Exam is completed on the afternoon of the Sunday.

Virtual Classroom Course Examinations

For the 'Attend from Anywhere' virtual classroom courses, the exams are taken after the training sessions at the convenience of the learner. These are typically taken online and we help with the scheduling of the exams.
