Nonkululeko Mdakana’s Feedback On uCertify PMI ACP Course

The PMI ACP Project Management course from uCertify is properly structured and offered more support and practice than I expected. It comes with pre-assessment, lessons, performance labs, practice test, and post assessment and by the time that helped me provide hands-on expertise on exam topics.

What I found unique about the PMI ACP Project Management course is that it is contrary to typical Agile project management courses and is the blend of all Agile methodologies in one course. This gave me a view of how the Agile framework is holistically structured to support the delivery of quality working solutions in any organization. The course setup is exceptional and I recommend it to anyone preparing for PMI ACP certification. I look forward to complete more courses with uCertify.
