NEWS! PMI Updates its PMI-ACP Exam
When it comes to choosing a project management certification, the Project Management Institute, or PMI, is the first organization that comes to mind. This is no surprise as project management credentials from this organization are some of the most prestigious and well-known certifications in the project management community. They are also some of the best paid professional certifications in the world. With IT project management, proficiency in Agile methodology is crucial. All this explains why the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) is now organization’s fastest-growing credential.
As many of you know, Agile is a collection of similar methodologies, and the PMI-ACP exam covers most of them. This includes : Lean, Kanban, test-driven development (TDD), Scrum and extreme programming (XP), which makes this certification very versatile and applicable in almost any organization.
PMI has recently announced changes to the PMI-ACP exam. The pilot for the new exam began on July 15, 2015 and continues through October 15, 2015, so you can now try and take the updated version of the exam and save 20%. Most notable among the 2015 changes is the addition of an entirely new practice domain — Domain 1: Agile Principles and Mindset. It will account for 16% of your exam score. According to PMI, this domain helps candidates “explore, embrace, and apply agile principles and mindset within the context of the project team and organization.” The domain covers nine practice areas:
Besides this domain, the exam will include the following: Value-Driven Delivery, Stakeholder Engagement, Team Performance, Adaptive Planning, Problem Detection and Resolution, and Continuous Improvement (Product, Process, People).
The pilot for the new exam began on July 15, 2015 and continues through October 15, 2015. For those who are adventurous and willing to take the exam early, PMI is offering a 20 percent discount to all PMI-ACP test takers before August 16, 2015. The normal exam fee is $435 USD for members and $495 for non-members, so this is a nice savings. After August 16, regular exam fee rates apply. The pilot phase ends on October 15, 2015.
