The Top 5 Benefits of an Agile PM Course

The AgilePM course is a comprehensive virtual training program that allows professionals to master all the skills needed to become an Agile Project Manager. Discover the top five benefits of this course for project managers in any industry:

1. Expand Your Skillset

The AgilePM framework gives you the opportunity to adopt a practical and repeatable methodology that achieves an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management and the fast-pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile. Based on the APMG’s international DSDM Agile Project Management Framework the learning integrates well alongside a waterfall methodology such as the APM’s but gives you additional capability for those projects which require a more flexible approach .
Whether, alongside AgilePM, you want to kick-start your project management career with the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ), secure a promotion with the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ), or soar to the top with the APM Chartership (ChPP), every course and accreditation is designed to expand your skills and make you a more competent and confident project manager.
AgilePM courses provide you with detailed information and ensure understanding of distinct principles and methodologies, but they also give you an overview of how different elements of project management fit together. This holistic approach allows students to learn about the Agile framework as a whole; it also ensures that they’re able to apply Agile methodologies more effectively and successfully in real-life professional settings.
By enhancing your skill set in this way, you can increase your value to existing and potential employers. In turn, this increases your career options and enables you to fulfil your professional goals.

2. Learning options

From face-to-face learning to virtual classrooms, Provek provide the environment you need to absorb critical information and obtain your certification.
While the course content is invaluable to project managers, the support of an experienced qualified trainer during the course brings the learning experience to life and imbeds further the knowledge studied via the pre course work and also the work and exercises during the course.
Furthermore, your motivation evidences commitment to your professional development ande is a key indicator of a valuable employee. When you’re negotiating a promotion or applying for new roles, your ability to be proactive and self-motivated will stand you in good stead.

3. Engage with Industry Peers

Networking is an important element of career progression in every industry. As you meet new people and connect with industry colleagues, you can expand your network and build your professional reputation.
When you enrol on an Agile PM foundation and practitioner course, you’ll have the chance to engage with your fellow project management students. As well as learning from one another and sharing your knowledge, these connections can last a lifetime and lead to professional network opportunities that you’d have otherwise missed out on.

4. Ensure Global Recognition

In some ways, the business world is smaller than ever. As companies embrace digital working solutions, you can seek employment anywhere in the world without leaving your home, for example. Similarly, project managers who want to work with a range of different companies can deliver their expertise and services virtually to clients in any location. 

To succeed on a global scale, however, you’ll need to have qualifications and certifications that are recognised worldwide. The AgilePM framework and certifications are highly regarded across all regions, and you can also be confident that an APM PFQ, PMQ, PPQ or ChPP will give you the global recognition you need and a width of knowledge across all areas, no matter where your career takes you. 

5. Boost Your Earning Power

The right job offers so much more than simply a good salary but securing a competitive remuneration package is certainly a top priority for most professionals. In any industry, relevant certifications and qualifications are critical in this fast changing world to secure the salary you deserve, and, in this sense, the project management sector is no different.

Completing an AgilePM foundation and practitioner course and successfully passing the exam, tells colleagues, employees, and future managers that you have the knowledge and skill set required to perform well and deliver value. Regardless of your professional experience, it’s these qualifications that give existing and potential employees peace of mind when it comes to choosing the right person for the job. 

When you have sector-specific certifications, you can use these to your advantage when you’re negotiating your salary. After all, being able to deliver critical value makes you indispensable to the right employer, which gives you the scope to demand a more rewarding remuneration package.
