The Agile PrepCast™ is a PMI-ACP® Prep Video Workshop that you download to your smart phone, tablet or laptop computer and watch whenever and wherever you want: On your commute to and from work, while doing housework, in the gym, during your lunch-break or back home as you relax on your sofa. The Agile PrepCast is your high-quality but low-cost alternative to attending a cumbersome classroom training. This is a complete PMI-ACP exam study approach that increases your chance of passing the Exam. Shorten your study time and still keep your focus. And you don't even have to read the recommended books to prepare. Watch over 21 hours of video from The Agile PrepCast and tackle the exam. It's that Agile!
The Agile PrepCast also qualifies for 37 Category A PDUs for those who are already Project Management Professional (PMP)® certified.
How The Agile PrepCast™ works
The Agile PrepCast™ is a podcast / videocast with in-depth video lessons for your PMI-ACP exam prep. After you order, you receive a personal link for downloading the videos. Simply watch them on your smart-phone, tablet, computer, laptop or any other portable media player. Well presented and easy to follow, you’ll love how Agile it is to study!
How To Watch The Agile PrepCast™
You have two options: 'Download and watch' or 'Browse and watch'.
Option 1: Download and watch the videos easily using iTunes (free software from Apple). Please note that we recommend iTunes, even if you don't use an iPod because iTunes is a robust application, extremely simple to use and it makes accessing The Agile PrepCast™ a matter of just 2-3 clicks. So install iTunes, purchase The Agile PrepCast, click "Download All" and 15-45 minutes later (depending on your internet access speed) you’ll have the complete workshop downloaded.
Option 2: Browse and watch the videos from any computer via the internet. Simply log in to The Agile PrepCast Student Gateway, surf to the video you want to watch and play it in your browser.
Both options are available to you all the time.
After completing The Agile PrepCast™ and passing the Final Exam you will be able to print a Contact Hours Certificate and use it to apply for your PMI-ACP® exam. (Those who are already PMP® certified, can also use this to claim 37 Category A PDUs). Our contact hour certificates have been used by thousands of our students and the Project Management Institute (PMI)® accepted them without exception because we are a PMI® Registered Education Provider.
How to receive the certificate: Two weeks after you begin studying with your PrepCast you can take our "Final Exam". Take this exam whenever you want and as many times as you need until you pass. Once completed, you can then print your certificate.
Interested in seeing how much you’re saving? Simply search the internet and you will quickly see that in order to receive the minimum required contact hours elsewhere you would have to buy a product that costs several hundred dollars! Not the same here.
The Agile PrepCast costs just $199
Surprised? You’re not alone. Many people are skeptical about our product at first because we offer it at an almost unbelievably low price. But once you start reading the customer testimonials you'll see that it's a high-quality product, one that everyone loves! We happen to think it’s the best one out there!
