AgilePM® Practitioner Upgrade

Course Summary

This two-day course will give you a practical understanding of AgilePM® which is based on the internationally recognised framework of DSDM Atern. It will enable you to become immediately productive as a project manager in an agile project environment.

The course will highlight the difference between simple lightweight agile approaches which typically operate at the solution delivery (or ‘work package’) level and the greater holistic view of how multiple work streams are co-ordinated with the appropriate level of governance and control. The course will also prepare you for the Practitioner exam.

The course is aimed at Project Managers who are either adding to their knowledge of traditional approaches such as PRINCE2® or who are operating in an agile environment and need to be able to run projects in more complex and scalable situations.

The course covers the AgilePM® certification by APMG and the DSDM Consortium that has been created to sit alongside PRINCE2® as an 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 two-day course has been re-structured to suit the v2 handbook and covers the AgilePM® Practitioner syllabus, including the following topics:

  • The Fundamentals and the Philosophy
  • The Principles
  • Preparation
  • The Lifecycle and Products

This course includes course materials and the AgilePM® Practitioner Exam fees.

The workbook is not included so please bring your own copy from the Foundation course. If you no longer have it then please contact us for purchase options.

The AgilePM® Practitioner exam is taken at the end of day 2. It is a 2½ hour, open book (restricted to official v2 handbook), objective type exam format comprising 4 main questions worth 20 marks each. The pass mark at practitioner level is 50%.
