Get your AgilePM certification in just three days. That's 25% faster than traditional training. During the course you'll learn the Agile methodology to optimise productivity and efficiency in your organisation.
Plus, this certification is based on the proven fundamentals of the DSDM Project Management Framework, the current version of AgilePM.
Get the skills required to:
An Agile project is completed in small sections called iterations. Each iteration is reviewed by a project team, which includes the client as well as employees. This is done to see what steps to take next in a project. Iterations are usually scheduled to be completed within two weeks.
The main benefit of an Agile project is the ability to respond to issues as they occur during your project. Making changes to a project at the right time saves resources and helps to deliver a successful project on time and within budget.
While on the course, you'll sit both the Foundation and Practitioner exams. The Foundation certification provides you with the core principles needed for a successful project, while allowing a degree of scope and agility. The Practitioner certification gives you further in-depth knowledge on how to apply and implement these principles on any project.
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.
This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a Certification Guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
Delegates will be provided with pre-course reading by email prior to attending the course.
We've designed our curriculum to prepare you for both the Foundation and Practitioner exams, which you'll sit onsite.
Apply the underpinning philosophy and principles of DSDM in a project situation
Development, Modelling and Timeboxing
We’ll prepare you for, and test you in, the following exams in order to gain your AgilePM certification:
To maintain your Practitioner Qualification you will need to sit and pass a Re-Registration exam within five years of passing your original examination.

There are several benefits of easy-to-use digital courseware: downloads are immediate, and you’ll always have your courseware available wherever you are. You won’t need to wait for a printed book to be delivered before you start learning – and it’s better for the environment. You can choose to download the courseware to your own device, or borrow one of ours.

Should a student complete a Firebrand Training Program without having successfully passed all vendor examinations, the student may re-attend that program for a period of one year. Students will only be responsible for accommodations and vendor exam fees.
Before attending this course, you must have experience in team leading, project management, project assurance/support or user management.
In order to gain the Practitioner certification, you must have first passed the Practitioner exam and either the Agile PM Foundation Certificate (which you'll sit on the course), the DSDM Atern Foundation Certificate or the DSDM Advanced Practitioner Certificate.
Don’t worry - we’ll discuss your technical background, experience and qualifications to determine whether this accelerated course suits you.
