“If you use agile practices in your projects, or your organization is adopting agile approaches to project management, the PMI-ACP® certification may be right for you. The PMI-ACP recognizes knowledge of agile principles, practices and tools and techniques across agile methodologies.

If you are working in organizations using agile, the PMI-ACP can pro-vide an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge of agile practices. The PMI-ACP is not limited to project managers as individuals with experience working on agile project teams can apply and experience requirements to obtain the PMI-ACP do not reflect the need to manage projects.” – PMI.org
