PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)®

This PMI-ACP® certification recognizes knowledge of agile principles and practices across agile methodologies (including Scrum, Lean, Kanban, etc.), not simply limiting a practitioner to one agile approach.

The certification can be used in a variety of roles, and any member of an agile team may be eligible to apply. It is also important to note that it can be used in a variety of projects and industries, not just in IT. Lastly, the PMI-ACP® does not require PMI’s PMP® certification as a prerequisite.
