After taking the final exam in The Agile PrepCast™, you will receive the certificate for your certification application or renewal. This article describes how to obtain this certificate.
Contact Hours from The Agile PrepCast™
The Project Management Institute (PMI)® requires that you undertake 21 contact hours of training in Agile practices before you can apply for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® Exam. Agile training can include topics covering Agile philosophy, methodologies, principles, and practices. All such training hours are valid, no matter when they were accrued. The training must be completed before you can sit for the examination.
The Agile PrepCast™ offers substantially more than 21 hours of distance learning in agile practices and counts towards this requirement.

Take our Final Exam to Get Your Contact Hours / PDU Certificate
To receive your 21 contact hour certificate, you must pass our end-of-course assessment, which we call our “Final Exam.” The Final Exam is a 25-question, multiple-choice exam. You must answer 17 questions correctly to pass. Just like in the “real” exam, we will not tell you the correct answers.
There is no time limit for you to take our Final Exam. You can take it after two weeks, two months, or even wait for a year. Also, you can take the final exam as often as you need until you pass. We do not publish the answers to The Final Exam. Learn more about When can I take the Final Exam for The Agile PrepCast™?
The earliest that you can take the final exam is 14 days after your purchase. These two weeks should give you ample time to watch all the lessons.

Please note: If you would like to learn more about what does and does not count towards your educational hours, then please read The Complete Guide to PMP 35 Contact Hours. The article is written from the perspective of the PMP exam, but the rules that govern contact hours are exactly the same for all PMI exams. So when you read the article, replace "PMP" with "PMI-ACP" in your head.
