This accredited Agile PM Agile Project Management Foundation & Practitioner training course offers students accreditation in the world’s first Agile Project Management qualifications – the Agile PM Foundation & Practitioner certifications.
It is designed to help students develop both the knowledge and skills required to work on an agile project and develop the understanding to apply the guidance on an agile project. The course is designed to equip students with the competence to begin working as an agile project manager on a non-complex project.
Students will sit 2 examinations, and on passing both will receive an Agile Project Management Practitioner certificate.
The Agile Project Management guidance used in the course is based upon DSDM’s Agile Project Framework (AgilePF) a leading and proven agile approach.
Why this qualification?
The demand for agile project managers grows daily. As more and more organizations understand the benefits of using agile, they require people with the knowledge and understanding of how to manage agile projects.
The AgilePM Foundation part of the course enables students to be able to recognise and distinguish between the key elements of the approach. The Practitioner part of the course focuses on equipping students with the competencies to begin to apply the guidance and to begin working as an agile project manager on non-complex projects.
By passing both the Agile Project Management Foundation & Practitioner exams you can show employers that you understand the key principles and terminology within the Agile Management Foundation guidance. It also means that you will be able to understand:
- How to apply the guidance in a project situation
- Configure the life cycle of an agile project to a given scenario
- Produce and evaluate agile products produced during a scenario
- Apply various agile techniques in a given scenario: MoSCoW prioritization, iterative development, modelling, time-boxing
- Identify agile techniques to be used for a given scenario
- Understand the roles and responsibilities within an agile project and correctly determine appropriate personnel to fulfil these roles
- Understand the control mechanisms for agile projects
- Understand in outline how to test, estimate and measure progress on an agile project
- Describe the agile approach to managing requirements and to identify problems with requirements within an agile project for a given scenario

I currently work on agile projects and want to learn new skills to bring back to work
As a student on this Agile Project Management Foundation and Practitioner training, you’ll become equipped with the terminology within the DSDM Agile Project Framework. You’ll also be able to go back to work with the knowledge of how to provide governance on agile projects.
If you’re a developer using SCRUM attending this training, you’ll find that DSDM can be used alongside SCRUM and uses some well-known agile techniques such as time-boxing, iterative development, MoSCoW and facilitated workshops.
Project management is usually the missing ingredient from agile methods, but not from DSDM. This Agile Project Management Foundation and Practitioner training will enable you go back to work with an understanding of what’s been previously been missing from your agile projects and what you can do to fill in the missing link.
I’m unemployed and want an agile qualification to put on my CV
Even if you’re an experienced project manager and perhaps have been made redundant or are in between contracts, you can benefit from attending the Agile Project Management Foundation & Practitioner course. With the number of companies using agile growing daily, you can boost your job search by having this agile qualification on your CV.
By having Agile Project Management Practitioner certification along with your previous project management experience, it shows employers that you can apply the Agile Project Management guidance on non-complex projects. It also shows potential employers that you have taken the steps to re-skill and learn increasingly important agile methods.
I want to change career and work in project management
You will find that many project management jobs now require experience and/or knowledge of agile.
One good thing, however, is that even if you want to make a complete career change you’ll find that many jobs require project management skills that are transferable. We have trained beginners who are from unrelated backgrounds such as consultancy, military, merchandising and even nursing who have then gone on to work in project management.
Agile methods are becoming extremely common, not only in the software and IT industries, but in creative and marketing industries. If you already have experience in those domains, by attending this Agile Project Management Foundation and Practitioner training you’ll gain knowledge of managing agile projects.
Gaining the full Agile Project Management Practitioner certification is recommended if you want to work in project management because it shows employers that you can apply the Agile Project Management guidance on agile projects.
I want to organize some agile project management training for my colleagues
If your organization undertakes agile projects or uses agile methods such as SCRUM, our Agile Project Management Foundation and Practitioner training will help your team members understand how to provide governance on your agile projects. Project governance is the missing link from most agile methods and our expert trainers are here to help your team understand how to fill this in missing link.
Keeping the flexibility of agile and providing the governance structures which enable the business benefits to be realized are the keys to successful projects in today’s world.

In terms of training, I had the pleasure of being trained by Susan Tuttle. I can honestly say it was the best learning experience I have had. She was soo enthusiastic and energetic, made learning fun and made everyone laugh which made it soo much more bearable. She was clearly an expert at the subject and knew it like the back of her hand.
In times where poor service and products are so common, it's such a relief dealing with this company.
We had a very proficient trainer with a deep and broad knowledge of the subject and the practical experience to back this up and bring the subject to life.
The trainer admitted that this was the first time he had run the course as a purely online event. It didn’t show, as the course was executed very well. With plenty of interaction and the opportunity to explore areas in greater detail and test understanding.
I thought that the trainer was very good and showed a lot of enthusiasm about the topic and was very knowledgeable.
I was starting from scratch as I had no experience in project management prior to this course so it was good to get an understanding of the concepts and be able to put them into practice in the practitioner element of the course.
Overall I am pleased with how the course went.
