The PMI-ACP course focuses on embracing and applying the Agile Manifesto — not a method, framework, or toolkit. You will, though, learn about Scrum, Kanban, eXtreme Programming, lean thinking, and other approaches.
The PMI-ACP global certification supports individuals in meeting the needs of organizations that rely on project practitioners to apply a diversity of methods to their project management — from predictive to hybrid to agile.
NOTE: This class will cover the 21 credit hours which is one of the key requirements for taking the PMI-ACP certification. In addition, students who have their PMP will gain 21 PDUs towards their PMP renewal.
Class Dates: October 3, 10, and 17, 2020

The infectious disease COVID-19 is crippling most aspects of society. Ending this pandemic will require scientists to develop ways of diagnosing, treating and preventing the disease, and the public is understandably eager to know how close scientists are to these goals. However, scientists often struggle to effectively communicate their research to non-experts, and both politicians and the media are imperfect intermediaries. Using examples relevant to COVID-19, this talk will help non-scientists to evaluate what scientists say and understand what they really mean. It will also provide advice for effectively discussing technical information with lay audiences.
- Understand the “business” of science
- Learn how to evaluate the who, what, and why of science communication
- Identify common unreported limitations of scientific studies
- Discuss ways scientists and non-scientists can communicate more effectively
