Agile PM
Foundation Course

This course covers the certification developed by APMG and the Agile Business Consortium to provide an agile approach to project management. The course is equally divided between the theory of the new wave of agile project management and the practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved. This course provides each participant with a solid Foundation in AgilePM concepts.

Certification Exam

The Foundation Exam is a 60 minute closed book multiple choice exam. You must get at least 30 of the 60 questions correct to pass. You must score 30 (50%) or more marks to pass the exam.

The examination is conducted by APMG, subject to their terms and conditions.

EZY Skills will book your examination with APMG. APMG will then contact you by email and ask you to register in their candidate system. They will also let you know how to schedule the date and time you wish to take your examination.

Your course fee allows for a “one time” sitting at the examination. Please be aware that if you schedule an examination with APMG but do not take that examination as scheduled, APMG will charge you an additional fee for the examination. You will not be able to reschedule a missed examination until this additional fee has been paid.

Reference manuals

Each Foundation course is self-contained; students will not need the reference manual to pass the Foundation examination

Follow-on Courses

We recommend that those who have completed the Foundation course should move on to the AgilePM Practitioner course as soon as possible, while their knowledge of AgilePM remains fresh.

The most economical way to take both Foundation and Practitioner courses is to purchase our AgilePM Combined Foundation and Practitioner course.

We also recommend that students who complete this course should proceed with one of our PRINCE2® courses.
