    More about Agile Project Management certification

    Agile Project Management certification

    The APMG Agile PM certification scheme announced by the APM Group (APMG) in 2010 was developed in conjunction with the Agile Business Consortium (formerly the DSDM Consortium).

    Since its launch in 2010, AgilePM has fast established itself as the leading agile project management certification scheme and framework.

    Many professionals eager to add a UK agile project management certification to their CV choose an Agile Project Management course.

    In December 2018, the APMG announced that the total number of AgilePM examinations sat worldwide had reached 100,000.

    By the end of 2018, approximately 65,000 AgilePM Foundation exams and over 35,000 AgilePM Practitioner exams have been sat worldwide. As more and more professionals learn about the new qualifications scheme, these numbers are set to rise.

    In 2017, approximately one third of AgilePM Foundation exams taken were sat in the UK.

    Global pass rates in 2018 for the Foundation exam were 98.5% and 94.7% for Practitioner.

    Who is Agile Project Management certification for?

    APMG Agile Project Management qualifications are for professionals working in an agile environment who want the discipline which more structured project management approaches can offer.

    With the demands on businesses ever increasing, there is pressure on project managers to deliver products faster, cheaper, and more efficiently than ever before.

    APMG Agile PM certification is also for project managers from a traditional background who want to improve their understanding of managing agile projects.

    How to get Agile PM certification

    To gain APMG Agile Project Management certification requires you to pass one of the two Agile PM exams: Foundation and Practitioner.

    Usually, students either attend a classroom Agile Project Management course or an Agile Project Management course online. Classroom Foundation courses last 3 days with a further day for the Practitioner course.

    AgilePM Foundation online courses requires 20 hours study time. AgilePM Practitioner online courses requires 15 hours study time.

    AgilePM examinations

    Both examinations are in multiple-choice formats with a pass mark of 50%. The Agile PM Foundation examination contains 60 questions to be answered in one hour. This exam is closed-book, and tests students’ ability to recognise and distinguish between the main elements of the AgilePM DSDM approach.

    Agile project management training courses at Foundation level are aimed at people who are already practising agile project managers, or members of agile project teams who are seeking to step up into agile project management.

    The Practitioner exam paper contains 80 questions. It is an open book exam lasting 2.5 hours and tests students’ ability to apply and tailor the AgilePM guidance to a given project scenario. It is designed to test a candidate’s competence to begin working as an Agile Project Manager on a non-complex project.

    AgilePM examination pre-requisites

    AgilePM Foundation examination -no pre-requisites.

    AgilePM Practitioner examination – you must already have passed either the AgilePM Foundation exam or either of the DSDM Atern Foundation or Practitioner exams.


    Agile Project Management certification, along with the framework learned on an AgilePM course, can be an extremely valuable asset to project managers wanting to manage projects in an agile way.

    Whilst the number of professionals with Agile Project Management certification remains far less than the number of PRINCE2 certified practitioners, this is an advantage for those professionals willing to put the work in to get their Agile PM certification.

    Having Agile PM certification is a great way to stand out from competitors in the jobs market when applying for agile project manager roles.
