Program Description: 

The PMI-ACP® Certification Preparation course will thoroughly prepare agile practitioners to sit for and pass the PMI-ACP® exam through instructor-led presentations, class discussions, games, exercises, and practice exams. [Held Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, June 24, 25, 26 - 2019]

• 90-day subscription to Watermark's PMI-ACP Online Study Exam simulator with over 400 questions
• Agile values and principles dry-erase worksheet
• Homework assignments with instructor-led review to help you understand, not just memorize, concepts
• Games, puzzles, and pop quizzes to enhance comprehension
• Comprehensive answer keys to all course materials and exercises

Participants in this course should meet the test eligibility requirements:
• General Project Experience: 
o 2,000 hours working on project teams (hours must be earned within the past 5 years; active PMP® or PgMP® satisfies this requirement).
• Agile Project Experience: 
o 1,500 working on agile project teams or with agile methodologies (hours must be earned within the past 3 years and are in addition to the 2,000 hours of general project experience).
• Training in Agile Practices: 
o 21 contact hours (hours must be earned in agile practices; this course satisfies all 21 contact hours).

While not a prerequisite for this course, participants would find it extremely helpful to have taken an agile fundamentals course.
The PMI-ACP® Certification Preparation course will thoroughly prepare agile practitioners to sit for and pass the PMI-ACP® exam through instructor-led presentations, class discussions, games, exercises, and practice exams. The course is aligned with the PMI-ACP Exam Content Outline (ECO) and provides everything needed to pass the exam. This course also provides students with the 21 contact hours necessary to apply for the exam.
The Project Management Institute has defined tasks required of the agile practitioner that fall into seven domains of practice. Tools and techniques as well as knowledge and skills needed by the PMI-ACP certified professional have also been identified that apply to all domains. Comprehensive coverage of all concepts will be in enough depth to ensure thorough understanding at the level required to pass the exam.

• The Exam Experience
• Agile Principles and Mindset
• Value-Driven Delivery
• Stakeholder Engagement
• Team Performance
• Adaptive Planning
• Problem Detection and Resolution

The PMI-ACP Certification Preparation course is delivered in six, 3.5 hour virtual, instructor-led sessions to maximize learning.

Speaker(s) Bios: 

Andrea Brockmeier has managed technical, operational, and financial projects for over 15 years, including developing and leading technical project teams. Since joining Watermark Learning, her energy has focused on curriculum development and training delivery.
Much of her project management work over the years has been in IT. One of her favorite projects included developing a Project Management Office that provided training, processes, and tools to turn a service IT department into a project-driven IT department. The results dramatically realigned the department’s efforts with the organization’s business objectives and resulted in the highest rate of technical deliverables in the organization’s history.
Other projects have included things ranging from proprietary software migration to new office space and, more recently, project-related work around online training platforms and process.
Andrea’s passion for project management works equally well in the workplace or the classroom. Her energy, enthusiasm and rapport with students create a lively and interactive learning experience, whether through teaching, mentoring, or consulting. She is also a talented course developer who brings years of academic and business experience to any development project.
Andrea earned a BA degree in Sociology from North Dakota State University and an MA in Cultural Anthropology from Southern Methodist University. She is also certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP)®, a Certified Scrum Master (CSM), a PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)®, and a PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)®.
