A webcam is required to identify yourself to the proctor with a photographic ID and then you can do the exam online from home.

What are the technical requirements for the online exam?

A personal computer is recommended to avoid any technical issues. If you are using an office computer, make sure you have the access rights or IT support at the time of the exam. For the online proctored exam an interface needs to be installed. Administrative rights are therefore essential.

Exams can be taken on a recent MAC or PC with Windows. A webcam and working microphone (internal or external) are required. Also, you must install either the browser ‘Google Chrome’ or ‘Firefox’.

The online exam is not available on a tablet (Ipad) or Cellular phone at the moment.

What’s the best way to prepare for the AgilePM exams?

Set your exam date first. Then work towards it. The material takes about 23 hours study to get you to Practitioner level. So, work out how long that is going to take you and then book the exams. This way you have a clear target to aim at. This will help you stay on schedule.

Do I need ID for the AgilePM exams?

You must have a photographic ID with you. A driver’s license or passport is fine. A work ID, with photograph, is also acceptable.

English is not my native tongue?

For exams done in another language than your native tongue, you will be attributed 25% more time. We can also make arrangements to help with dyslexia or medical issues regarding exams if you submit a doctor’s note in advance.

How long does my AgilePM qualification last?

The AgilePM Foundation qualification is permanent. The Practitioner qualification must be renewed every 5 years to maintain your status as an AgilePM Registered Practitioner.

What happens if I don’t pass an AgilePM exam?

If you don’t pass the exam you can do a re-sit for an additional fee.


How many hours of study are required to pass the exam?

You need about 10 hours study to get ready for the Foundation exam. And 13 more hours for the Practitioner level.

Is this course available in virtual class?

No. However if your organization wishes to form a group, we can accommodate a team of 5 or more participants.

I am thinking about buying the AgilePM manual and self-studying?

I am not sure my computer is up to date for the online exam?

You can use the contact form to send us a message in advance. We will be able to verify if your computer meets the technical requirements.

What is the process for a proctored exam?

The exam authority has a strict procedure for online exams to ensure the security of the session. Some of them are:

You will be asked to be alone in a well-lit room with no background noise. The proctor will ask you to rotate your webcam in order to verify the area. Your desk must be clean of papers, books or notes. Glass walls and/or doors are prohibited unless they are covered.
