This is not typical certification training. It is not 21 hours of monologue. Students will work with and will experience agile the entire time. Agile is imbedded in the pedagogic format. The class is taught as a Scrum.

    The 2017 Fall Class begins with orientation Thursday Sept 7th. Orientation is from 6:00 to 7:30 PM.

Students receive the RMC PMI-ACP® Exam Prep System including Mike Griffiths’ PMI-ACP Exam Prep book, Hot topics flash cards, and exam simulation software. Electronic copies of all class materials are provided. Students should plan to bring and utilize electronic devices during the class and to discuss all materials extensively.

    The form of this class is experiential, Socratic, project based learning. The form of this class requires extensive participation and heavy facilitation. Therefore, commitment to attend all sessions is required of each student. Refunds will not be offered. Students must commit to participating extensively and to 100% attendance at all sessions.
