PMI-ACP Quick Links

The PMI-ACP (Agile Certified Practitioner) is PMI's version of combining a Certififed Scrummaster and Certified Prodcut Owner class into one.

In addition, the PMI-ACP model includes accessories for scaling SCRUM up for larger numbers of teams, advanced Risk Management, and the philosophies of LEAN.

Because the ACP requires 800 hours of Agile practice, PMI-ACP credential holders are better equipped out of the gate over CSM's or CSPO's.
