Attend this official APMG AgilePM Foundation certification course and learn how to flex and deliver projects rapidly to meet your customer needs. Plus, you will prepare for and take the AgilePM Foundation exam in-class.

  • Familiarity with project work, either as a project manager or as another role on a project – this course is not designed to teach people how to be a project manager, it is in tended to provide an agile framework to those who already have some basic project experience.
  • Familiarity with agile product development (for example, Scrum) – this course builds on product development experience to encompass the entire agile project lifecycle, not just development aspects.

  • This course is accredited by APMG.

  • There are a few hours of pre-course reading required.
  • On Evenings 1 and 2 there will be some sample exam questions set as homework. It is important to set aside some time to complete this extra work – candidates who are able to complete both the pre-reading and the homework achieve significantly better exam results.

  • The Foundation exam will be administered during class.
  • Foundation exam: 40 minutes, 50 multiple-choice questions, passing score is 50%, closed book.
  • APMG Exam no shows, or late cancels/reschedules will result in a £20 fee to the candidate directly from APMG.
