How does it work?

Through the 07 weeks of study, PMINAC volunteer facilitators will provide overview presentations for each of the chapters in the Agile Practice Guide (2017) to relay the foundation and basics to the students. Along the way, the facilitators will provide tips and tricks for the exam prep and highlight key learning areas. The tables are then turned during each session for the students to present the chapter to the class. Additionally, each session will have an exam at the beginning of the class where students test their knowledge and a 100-questions final exam on the last day as a final preparation.

This study group is NOT an in-class training by instructors, but a highly interactive study group facilitated by PMINAC experienced volunteers and study group participants. The sessions are designed to assist in your study preparation to obtain your PMI-ACP®. You will be required to study all chapters of the PMI-AGILE GUIDE® - Latest Edition over the 7 sessions and write the final exam.
