Course Details: PMI-ACP® Exam Preparation Program


This program will next be offered February 2-March 9, 2018.

Our PMI-ACP Exam Preparation program consists of two required parts:

  • Part 1: Online Overview—Online sessions are held weekly over five Saturdays.
  • Part 2: On-campus Boot Camp is held over three days the week following Part 1.

PMI-ACP Certification Requirements

You must have either:

  • A secondary diploma (high school, associate’s degree, or the global equivalent)
  • 2,000 hours (12 months within the last 5 years) of general project experience working on teams (a current PMP® or PgMP® will satisfy this requirement but is not required to apply for the PMI-ACP® program)
  • 1,500 hours (8 months within the last 3 years) working on agile project teams or with agile methodologies (in addition to the 2,000 hours of general project experience)
  • 21 contact hours of training in agile practices (successful completion of the Boston University PMI-ACP Exam Preparation course fulfills this requirement)

In addition, you must also:

  • Submit relevant academic transcripts
  • Submit your application and testing fee to PMI® to take the exam. The Online Overview (Part 1) will enable you to have your application completed and submitted prior to taking the On-Campus Boot Camp (Part 2).
