  • 7 Reasons to Take PMI-ACP® Certification

    Agile development process came into view as an alternative to established ‘plan-driven’ Waterfall model of project management methodology in the early 1990s. This approach works well for small projects with a limited scope of work and a few variables. Looking at the rate of implementation of Agile and the growing popularity of it, it is pretty evident as to why you should go for PMI-ACP®. Here are more reasons which validate your decision to go for it. The number of reasons here is staggering and provides you the fact to go ahead and learn PMI-ACP®.

    Competitive Advantage over Your Peers:
    An Agile Certified Professional gets trained in principles and practices that alter the performance of a team. When training in Agile, one learns to combine the best Agile methodologies to ensure superior delivery of the finished project. Being a certified professional, guarantees a quick response and thereby empowers him with a competitive advantage and helps him stay ahead of his peers. This helps you out in your career as there are organizations looking for the most capable and knowledgeable professional to lead their projects.

    Increased Adoption of Agile:
    According to the recent report by the Standish group, organizations have started seeing more success in adopting Agile methodologies.

    Agile Better than Traditional Waterfall Approach:
    It is understandable that the Waterfall approach or other similar methodologies will be suitable for some business types, but there is evidence now that these organizations are looking out for other methodologies as well and Agile seems to be in the forefront. According to a survey, 65.8% of Waterfall users associate Agile with increased profits and only 13.2% of users believe that a pure Waterfall will lead to increased profits.
    In an annual survey conducted by the State of Agile, 73% of the respondents felt that Agile helped them to complete faster, 33% felt that Agile accelerated the time to market, 92% said that it improved their ability to manage priorities and 87% reported increased productivity. About 23% of the respondents agree that Agile did help them to align IT and Business better. Reports show that the popularity of Agile is increasing and captivating the hearts of Waterfall users. As a result, there is an increase in Agile users and more and more users are clubbing Agile methodologies with a Waterfall approach.

    Strong Career Opportunities:
    The Agile environment is creating strong career opportunities for IT Project Managers, Testers and QA professionals, who can move into specialist positions such as ‘Agile Mentor’ or ‘Agile Scrum Master’, ‘Technical Business Analyst’ and ‘Agile Coach’. Numerous organizations around the world are looking for professionals with strong knowledge of Agile. With the help of a certification, it becomes easy for these professionals to move the authoritative positions, as certification is proof that one has theoretical knowledge of how to deal with challenging projects.

    Increased Productivity:
    Numerous surveys are clearly indicating that organizations implementing Agile methodologies are proving to be much more productive than other methodologies, in terms of accelerated time to market, managing changing priorities, taking lesser time to complete, completing project within the budget and time frame. Agile methodologies have proved itself when it comes to bringing down the cost and increasing efficiency.
    Agile methodologies boost team performance and create an amicable environment for joint decision making, learning and resolving impending issues within the team and thereby increasing the productivity of the team as well as each and every member of the team.

    Certification = Instant Validation:

    Being certified is almost synonymous (this is evident from the demand for certified PM professional) to proof of your knowledge and dedication to increase the standards and performance of projects using Agile methodologies. Because of this very reason, organizations trust a certified Agile professional to efficiently plan and execute a project when compared to a non-certified professional. The certification instantaneously gives you an edge when recruiters are looking for the project management professional. Being certified automatically increases the chances of having a successful career.

    Better Remuneration:
    According to a recent survey by the Project Management Institute, the median salary for project management professionals in the United States, Switzerland, Australia, UAE, Germany, and the Netherlands is more than $100,000. And the average salary of a certified PMI-ACP® is about $123,000 per annum. The difference in salary of a certified and non-certified PMI-ACP is about 28%, with the former getting the higher pay.

NOT RECOMMENDED for CPHQ course sharing my review from my own experience with RED learning . me and my friend registered for the CPHQ course and we decided to withdraw after we attended the first class, I tried to get our money back but the refused, I called the police for them and they offered me to refund 60%. that we didn’t accept and that’s how we were forced to continue. we decided to withdraw and we not recommending RED learning for the following reasons: 1- the RED learning has no experience in teaching the CPHQ course, we were the first patch ( 4 students) & weren’t informed about this point. 2- although the CPHQ costs 2850 the quality of service was cheap. 3- all the professional institutions are teaching the Janet Brown book as its the main book to pass the CPHQ exam, but the are teaching the HQ solution that considered as a side reference. 4- cheap study material was provided ( 2256 PPt slides made as book that its volume is bigger than the book it self & a hacked HQ solution scan PDF) 5- the instructor seems lost and her teaching methods are not meeting the criteria of registration for the CPHQ course as she is memorizing NOT understanding what she is teaching, she kept saying you can read this alone, she was laterally reading from the slides and for the parts that needs to be understood she advised to watch youtube!. at her CV it’s not mentioned how many CPHQ hours she touch or where!! 6- the refund policy is unfair and robbery as it will be the total amount if you attend the first class of the course and the worst it wasn’t explained to us from the beginning how we could make our judgment without attending the class!. 7- don’t communicate with a person his name is RIZWAN as this man giving a fake promises, unhonest and has no professional ethics and morals, he tried to coup my friend on me & … he even offered my friend to pay her commission if she will fake people by advising them to join the RED learning for CPHQ course. 8- at the course brochure we received by email from RED learning it mentioned: No matter your job title, position, department specialty, or working environment there are no formal eligibility requirements to sit for the CPHQ Certification. while at another professional institutions websites it mentioned: Eligibility: CEOs, Quality management professionals, Medical Directors, Accreditation Officers, Senior nurses, Risk managers Healthcare Administrators and all Health care professionals interested in managerial or quality jobs. because for sure not everyone is eligible for the CPHQ and this will give an indicator that RED learning is cheap, unprofessional, just looking for money and have no experience what is CPHQ course is. 9- at the RED learning website it mentioned (100% satisfaction rate), while this is just a fake information because nothing is perfect and they are faraway from that. I really felt that RED learning is just care about money without any consideration of the quality of there services, the students or there reputation. Although we finished the course we didn’t receive our CME certificates yet!! In contrast, another really professional institution with a high experience such as Transformed they are providing Janet brown, HQ solution and JCI book all parented and there refund policy is to pay 500 AED to book a seat , to attend the first class and if you want to withdraw simply will pay you your 500.read more

Highly recommended if you are looking to obtain a PMP certification. Under the guidance of Mr. Najmal(Dubai), I was able to successfully pass my PMP exam in the first attempt with "Above Target" score in all the Project Management Process Groups. He is an experienced trainer and PMP practitioner who will guide you throughout the entire process right from the time of training, application approval till you get your PMP certification. Red Learning has a good library resource of PMP related course materials and mock tests that will help you practice questions in a real type exam simulation environment. They also have a very great staff and I would like thank Aleesha, Rizwan, Hazal, Melvin for their continued support.read more
