PMI-ACP Certification Class!

A note from the VPN of Professional Development about our upcoming ACP Cert Class between GR8PM and PMI-SWVA:

Most PMP®s were so traumatized by the application process and exam that the second question (after the first question, “Am I qualified to sit for the PMI-ACP® exam?”) is, “How hard is it get certified?” Once again I asked our partner, GR8PM, and they said the answer is multi-faceted but generally:

·         The PMI-ACP® is much more serious and far more difficult than becoming a Scrum Master. 

·         Non-PMP®s tend to think it is massively difficult.

·         PMP®s tend to think it’s not too bad, and a lot easier than the PMP® application and exam.

Having trained more than 3,000 PMI-ACP® certificate holders, GR8PM says the application is actually radically simpler and the exam is significantly more approachable than the PMP® ones were, but that all bets are off once the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition with Agile in every Knowledge Area is released. 

That really does mean that now is the time to get your PMI-ACP® certificate. After all, your PMP® credential gets you the interview but your Agile expertise gets you the job so it is simply intelligent risk management to get ahead of that curve!

As you’ve heard, the Chapter is collaborating with GR8PM to bring you a PMI-ACP® Exam Preparation class that includes a 100% Money-back, First-time Pass Guarantee! And to top it off, John Stenbeck, author of the Amazon #1 Best Seller – the Agile Almanac – will be teaching our class!

You do not have to be a PMP or a Scrum Master to get great value out of this 1-day seminar with 28 hours of blended-learning instruction and 28 PDUs. It is the best of self-directed study combined with Instructor-led training. The class is on Friday, May 5th, 2017 so you need to hurry because the Early Bird price expires on Sunday, April, 9th. We have also arranged a Member coupon code (pmiswva0517) for $100 off (for a total savings of $200!).

The PMI-SWVA Board is working hard to help you maximize your career. We hope you see this class as evidence of that. Get more info on our website or go to to sign up.
