What Our Customers Say
Tony – the trainer was absolutely excellent! Provided many useful hints and tips, regarding examination strategy and explained every topic in a fun and relatable manner. Even in a virtual environment, Tony soon had all delegates actively engaged. And continued to encourage and assist everyone, every step of the way. Would have no hesitation in recommending this NILC course to others. – Thank you.
The course was delivered by a great tutor with a breadth of experience in Project Management who was able to provide great practical examples to support learning with some good humour along the way. I attended the course through ReAct funding and NILC were great throughout the enrolment process, keeping me up to date with good communication. Would definitely recommend.
I recently attended a 4-day AgilePM course hosted on-line by Tony Perks. Having completed an in person PRINCE2 course with NILC in 2018, I found the on-line experience to be just as effective – even with the odd technical glitch. Undoubtedly, Tony knows his subject matter and is a great trainer, so I’d have no hesitation in recommending this course.

Cardiff is the capital of Wales. It used to be an industrial city, but is now a lively and modern capital city and a tourism hot spot. The city is friendly to pedestrians, and summer is by far the best time to visit, with large festivals, and outdoor dining and drinking. The city centre has been intensely developed in the 21st century, and is now considered to be one of the top ten shopping destinations in the United Kingdom. Cardiff is a green city, and this is complemented by Bute Park which sits in the heart of the city. It has a reputation as a city of castles, having 5 of them within its surroundings. The city’s core population stands at roughly 341,000, with 861,000 living in the larger urban area.
Cardiff is on the south coast of the south Wales plain, with a shoreline on the Bristol Channel. It lies at the mouth of three rivers: the Taff, the Ely and the Rhymney, with the Taff flowing through the city centre and all three reaching the sea at Cardiff Bay. Cardiff is quite a flat city, a characteristic that helped it become one of the world’s leading ports for the transport of coal from the rugged south Wales Valleys.

Frequently Asked Questions
When Will I Receive My AgilePM Exam Results?
Foundation Exam Results
If you have taken a classroom AgilePM® Foundation course, your paper-based exam will be marked by the trainer immediately following the exam and the provisional results are available within an hour.
If you have taken a Virtual Live AgilePM® Foundation course, your online exam will be marked automatically and your results will be immediately available upon completion.
Practitioner Exam Results
If you have taken a classroom AgilePM® Practitioner, your paper-based exam will be sent to the examination board (APMG) for marking and your results will be available in 7-10 working days.
If you have taken a Virtual Live AgilePM® Practitioner course, your online exam will be marked automatically and your results will be immediately available upon completion.
Are there any sample exam papers?
Yes. As part of your Agile training you will be given access to a full sample exam paper.
Will I receive any pre-course reading?
Yes. Approximately 3 weeks prior to the course start date you will receive an electronic copy of your pre-course reading material (which is taken from the Agile Project Management Handbook version 2.0). On the first day of the course you will receive a hard copy of the official Agile Project Management Handbook which is yours to keep.
For Virtual Live training courses, your hard copy of the manual will be sent to your delivery address prior to the course start date (UK based customers only). For customers located outside of the UK a PDF manual will be made available to yourself.
Are there any additional costs to the course price?
No. Everything is included in the course price. This includes your tuition, course materials, official AgilePM manual, sample exams, pre-course study, exam fees and certification. If you’re doing a classroom-based training course at one of NILC’s venues, you’ll also receive unlimited tea, coffee, water and free Wi-Fi.
Where do I sit the AgilePM exams?
For classroom based courses you take your paper-based AgilePM Foundation and/or Practitioner exams in the class during the course.
For Virtual-Live courses you take the online AgilePM Foundation and/or Practitioner exams in the virtual class during the course.
What version are your AgilePM courses?
All of NILC’s AgilePM courses follow the AgilePM v2.0 syllabus and Agile Project Management Handbook. These are based upon the Agile Project Framework – the latest version of DSDM.
What happens if I fail an AgilePM exam?
If you fail to pass either of the AgilePM examinations, we will offer you support to give you the best opportunity to pass at the next attempt. Both Foundation and Practitioner exams can be sat on their own without having to retake the whole course (as long as you originally took the course with us). Don’t worry if you do fail one of the exams, they are designed to be a challenge - if everyone passed first time, then it wouldn’t signify a good exam.
Our high pass rates for both Foundation and Practitioner exams allows us to be confident that you will pass at the first attempt providing you complete the pre-course reading, attend the course every day, undertake the trial questions, and conduct the 1-2 hour daily homework during the course.
Do the AgilePM qualifications expire?
Agile PM Foundation and Practitioner qualifications never expire.
You get AgilePM Registered Practitioner Status after successfully passing the Practitioner exam. This status expires after five years. To renew you must pass a Re-registration exam 3-5 years after passing your initial Practitioner exam.
