Event Description-


Pass the PMI-ACP® this year, with a 2-Day Boot Camp at a value price.  Get a professional quality class at a PMI-SFBAC chapter price. This is the best deal in town!  Sign up while we still have spaces available!!!

This 21-contact hour course is designed to prepare candidates to sit for, and pass, the PMI-ACP® certification exam.  Or, if you are already a PMP or PgMP® and need 21 PDUs toward your Continuing Certification Requirements, this is the class for you.  This is NOT an introduction to Agile. 

SAVE $200 ON YOUR REGISTRATION! (Members of PMI and the PMI-SF Bay Area chapter get a $200 discount on their registration)

This is highly recommended!!!! Join PMI Global ($129) and the local San Francisco Bay Area chapter ($30).  You will recoup this cost when registering for the course and also save $60 when you apply for your PMI-ACP® Exam!  Finally, you'll receive discounted rates on all chapter events! You can't lose! Join PMI and the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter today at

NOTE on Joining the SF Bay Area Chapter: Because of technical and procedural limitations you will not be able to register for the PMI-ACP Prep Course at the member rate on the same day that you join the PMI SF Bay Area Chapter. The reason for this is that joining a local PMI chapter is a function managed by PMI through their website. After joining the PMI SF Bay Area Chapter on the PMI website, it will take anywhere from one to three business days for PMI to process your new chapter membership. The PMI SF Bay Area Chapter database is automatically updated during a nightly download only after PMI has completed the processing of your new chapter membership. Please remember to provide adequate time to allow your chapter membership to process before you register for the PMI-ACP® Prep Course through the website.

There will be no adjustment to the fee charged for the PMI-ACP® Prep Course if you become a PMI SF Bay Area Chapter member after you register for the PMI-ACP® Prep Course.

How does this event benefit PMI members?

At the conclusion of this class students will have familiarity with all the information required to successfully study for and pass the PMI-ACP® Exam.  The price point is very competitive compared to what is offered commercially, which makes it a great value for members who have to pay out of pocket.

Dress Code:

In order to facilitate student comfort during these hardworking training sessions, the dress code is comfortable, so jeans are acceptable. The classroom may be cold, so ensure that you bring a sweatshirt or similar, just in case.

Course Credit: 

Students who satisfy course completion requirements receive a "Certificate of Completion," attesting to the fact that they have completed 21 hours of project management training. This satisfies the PMI training requirement of 21 hours needed to sit for the PMI-ACP®.  To obtain a certificate of completion for this course, students must attend all 2 days of training and participate in class activities.


You are not required to take this Exam Prep Course before the exam. The course prepares individuals to take the PMI-ACP® exam, but neither PMI® nor the PMI® San Francisco Bay Area Chapter guarantee or imply that completion of the course will ensure that a participant will pass the PMI-ACP® examination. 

Please direct all inquiries to PMI-ACP® Prep Course Director at [email protected]

Speaker Details:

Each session is taught by a volunteer PMI-ACP® Certified Instructor using state of the art instructional materials created by Andy Crowe from Velociteach and is intended to be highly interactive.
Each Instructor has years of practical project management experience and can help you to understand the application of the concepts and provide valuable tips and tricks for studying for the exam.
