What is the PMI-ACP Exam?

In the project management field, Agile software development is a tried and true method of project management using iterative and incremental project development techniques, originating from the Agile Manifesto, which was published in 2001. Becoming an Agile certified project manager involves passing the Project Management Institute Agile Certified Practitioner exam, or the PMI-ACP exam.*

The Agile method is widely adopted in many new media and tech companies, and many of them require their project managers to be PMI-ACP certified. Here are some basics on the PMI-ACP exam:*

  • The PMI-ACP is not exclusive to Agile project managers. Those that have experience working with Agile practices or have worked on Agile project teams can apply to take the exam.
  • Each PMI-ACP exam consists of 100 scored submissions and 20 un-scored submissions.
  • Half of the exam tests your Agile Tools and Techniques, and the other half evaluates your Agile Knowledge and Skills.
  • In the Agile Knowledge and Skills portion of the exam, there are three levels of importance. Level 1 contains 18 questions, Level 2 contains 12 questions, and Level 3 contains 13 questions.
  • The un-scored items are not identified prior to taking the exam and are randomly distributed throughout the exam process.

The PMI-ACP exam consists of 120 multiple-choice questions to be completed in the span of three hours. It is highly recommended that you take time to study rigorously for this exam, even if you have extensive experience with working in an Agile environment.

The logical sequencing and structure of the practice tests, along with the post exam reporting, enabled me to identify areas of weakness and drill on those to increase my competency.
