What must you do to become a PMI certified Agile Professional?

The details are spelled out on their website; here are the most essential points:

  1. General Project Management Experience — 2,000 hours working on project teams, earned within the last 5 years. Those holding a PMP credential already satisfy these requirements.
  2. Agile Project Management Experience — 1,500 hours working on Agile project teams or in Agile methodologies within the last two years.
  3. Agile Project Management Training — 21 contact hours; hours must be earned in Agile project management topics
  4. Examination — Tests knowledge of Agile fundamentals and ability to apply to basic projects
  5. Maintenance — 30 PDUs/3 CEUs every 3 years in Agile project management.

Note that Agile Project Management Experience cannot be double counted with general project management experience. A total of 3500 hours is necessary for the certification.

Twenty one contact hours basically translates to three days of Agile Training. The PMI has recognized Scrum Alliance certified courses in the past, so this should continue in the future. Note that over the three years after initial certification, an average of 10 PDUs / year (1 PDU = 1 hour of training, conference attendance or similar activity) is required to maintain the certification.
