Course Details

Introduction

This APMG authorised true weekend course addresses the needs of professionals, including career changers, who due to time constraints will benefit from an alternative to the standard four day event. The course covers both the foundation and practitioner level for project team members who are, or aim to be, working in project-focused environments which require the efficiencies of Agile.

Agile Project Management is based on the long-standing DSDM Atern® (Dynamic Systems Development Method) and it provides organisations with standards, rigour and visibility while enabling the Solution Development Team to make the best use of their knowledge and skills.

We pride ourselves on the overall quality and success of our training. Key features of our Agile Project Management courses include:

  • Experienced APMG accredited trainer
  • APMG accredited courseware
  • Official Agile Project Management Handbook
  • Foundation and Practitioner Examinations
  • Maximum of ten attendees - some providers have fifteen plus and even up to twenty-five people at an event
  • Air conditioned rooms - another national provider does not provide this even in the examination room
  • True weekend course - some providers begin Friday
  • Lunch - a quality lunch and refreshments are provided
