Practitioner certificate

For agile transformation to be truly effective any learning has to be applied. This certificate is based on ten modules of the BCS endorsed ValueFlowQuality* education programme by Emergn.

The courseware includes case studies, theory and activities that you can do with your own projects and teams. The assignments provide opportunities for you to apply your capabilities to real situations in your organisation demonstrating your ability to achieve real results.

Who is this aimed at?

Anyone who is participating in the launch or roll out of agile practices into their business. For example project managers, business analysts, product managers and marketing managers.

What are the entry requirements?

None. A basic understanding of Agile is expected, which can be obtained from the Foundation Certificate.

Training with a BCS accredited training provider is recommended (a two day accredited training course followed by 75 hours of self-study or work based learning over 2-3 months with BCS endorsed courseware).

Courseware is available for self study. For direct entry, candidates who already have strong experience of agile methodologies can apply for exemption from the work-based learning element of the process.

What format is the exam?

  • Three hours ‘closed book’
  • Written, scenario based
  • Pass mark is 54/90 (60%)

Note: If you are taking the examination in a language that is not your native language then you are entitled to additional time and the use of a paper dictionary.

Option 2: Self-study - purchase the courseware and exam (£699 ex VAT)
