Simply put, in the Agile arena, certifications matter. As far as certifications go, the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® is PMI’s fastest growing certification in the world. PMI-ACP is internationally respected as hard-earned credentialing of your knowledge in Agile principles and your skill with Agile techniques.
PMI asked our 3Back instructors to play a pivotal role in the development of the PMI-ACP certification. From participating in the PMI-ACP exam steering committee to authoring Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals, the primary Scrum-specific text which PMI chose to use as reference for the exam, we can tell you first-hand, this certification is a very respected, very big deal. And you should get it.

Need more reasons to go for your PMI-ACP? Whether you’re looking to highlight and grow your skills within your current organization or are interested in exploring Agile opportunities elsewhere, here are 3 reasons that matter to you, your current employer, and prospective employers.
1. PMI-ACP Makes Your Agile Versatility Visible
PMI-ACP tests a broad set of Agile methodologies, including Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD). Is there another globally-renowned certification that covers this range of Agile skills? Nope.
2. PMI-ACP Showcases Your Real-World Experience
PMI-ACP is more than a test. To apply for PMI-ACP certification, you must complete:
- 2,000 hours of general project experience
- 1,500 hours of Agile project Team experience
- 21 hours of training in Agile practices
That’s a lot of experience that you need under your belt before you sharpen your #2 pencil and take the test. That’s a lot of experience that those around you – in your current organization or organizations worldwide, recognize.
3. PMI-ACP Propels You Into a High-Demand Group of Agile Professionals
Agile is increasingly and exclusively used as the development process of choice. Currently, over 80% of all software development projects use Agile methods. PMI-ACP means your mastery of Agile practices is verified, validated and vetted industry-wide, setting you apart from your peers in your current position or elsewhere.
