Training & Exams
Regarding taking the exams, currently candidates have a year in which to complete and sit their exams online. Regarding the exams themselves, the Foundation exam does not expire once you have passed it, the Practicioner exam is valid for 5 years.
If candidates fail at the first attempt, then they can re-book to take the exam again as soon as they wish and the charge for this will be the same as the original exam.
Please visit our certifications page.
To become an AgilePM Trainer you will first need to take the AgilePM Foundation and Practitioner course and exam and receive a pass mark of 80%+
For more information on how to register for AgilePM please visit APMG International.
If you have passed AgilePM Practitioner with 80%, your next step is to find a sponsor.
All Agile Project Management trainers must be "sponsored" by an Agile Project Management accredited training organization (ATO). Details of all Agile Project Management ATOs can be found here.
A trainer application must be submitted by the sponsoring ATO to [email protected] or the equivalent relevant APMG-International office.
You must contact APMG or your trainer directly.

For trainers already certified by Agile Business Consortium to train ABC Scrum Master, recertifying in the new version will require passing the revised ABC Scrum Master exam with a mark of 86% (43/50). Trainers can also extend their certification to train the new ABC Scrum Product Owner course by passing the ABC Product Owner exam with a mark of 86% (43/50). Note that trainers certified by Agile Business Consortium MUST use the vanilla course materials created by us unless such course materials have been accredited by APMG for use by a specific APMG ATO.
For trainers new to training ABC Scrum Product they MUST certify in Scrum Master and extend that to cover Product Owner if they wish to train that too. As well as passing the exams with a mark of 86% there is a requirement for the trainer to have practical experience with the application of Scrum or a similar Agile approach such as DSDM (AgilePM) for which they must provide a written account and attend an assessment interview with two ABC certified examiners.
Trainers intending to provide training services exclusively for APMG ATOs (for clarity that means training organisations accredited by APMG rather than by ABC) also have the option of certifying through APMG who follow essentially the same process.
Existing APMG accredited Scrum Master trainers can take the new Scrum Master exam for free. They will need to pay to take the Scrum Product Owner exam.
The ATO/Trainer will need to contact their APMG Business Development Manager (BDM), who will arrange the free exam with APMGs accreditation team.
If you do not know who your BDM is please email [email protected]
