The blackout period begins today. November 30 marked the last day of the pilot program for the new exam. If you are pursuing the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner certification, you will not be able to take the exam for about two months. According to Rory McCorkle, the exam will be blacked out for revisions from the pilot until approximately 31 January. Mr. McCorkle serves as Product Manager of Credentials at the Project Management Institute (PMI).
“At ease, soldiers!” If this PMI-ACP has your full attention, you can relax for a brief period. Set this certification as a professional goal for 2012. Write “PMI-ACP” on a sticky note or blank story card and display it prominently in your office…like an information radiator (bad Agile jokes…sorry). Enjoy the holidays. Recharge your batteries. Plan your attack on this new certification knowing that the exam date will be after Jan 31, 2012.
