International Institute for Learning, Inc Agile PM Foundation and Practitioner (APMG) International Institute for Learning, Inc

This course offers preparation and sitting for both the Foundation and Practitioner level examinations for the APMG-International™ / Agile Project Management Certification. Agile Project Management (Agile PM) is the result of collaboration between APMG-International and The DSDM Consortium.

The method has evolved over the years and DSDM Atern is the latest version of which Agile PM is a subset. DSDM has always operated predominantly in the corporate environment, and has consistently demonstrated its ability to successfully work with and complement existing corporate processes.
