If we are talking about certified courses, yes you do. If you fail to attend the full hours of the certified courses, the trainer will not be able to certify you. Regarding the non-certified courses, we strongly recommend you don’t lose any of the training hours so you don’t compromise your learning. If you miss more than 20% of the non–certified courses The Academy will not be able to issue your certificate of completion.
Yes, you will get an Agile Thinkers Academy certificate of completion at the end of each path. You will also be getting official certificates according to the program you choose from several global entities (Kanban University, ICAgile, Scaled Agile, Scrum Alliance, etc). Certifications included may vary according to the programs redesign. You also need to deliver the practical assignment in order to receive the certificate of completion at the end of each path.
We strongly recommend you have a good English level of understanding. Some courses will be delivered entirely in English. In case there is a foreign student in the class the Academies will be fully in English language.
The majority of the courses are planned to be online. In the case of the certified courses Agile Thinkers Academy might ask you to come to attend the course physically in Lisbon or Porto. In this case, the Academies will pay for your accommodation (maximum 2 nights).
The learning paths are for organizations’ teams and individuals that seek to learn new ways of working with Agile: Project Managers, Analysts, Business Developers, Software Developers, or Operations. The Unlocking Agility covers from the mindset to the values, principles, and practices. The Agile Business explores how Agile can prepare traditional HR, Marketing, IT, Finance, Sales, or Procurement environments to rapidly respond to change. Finally, the Business Transformation brings a in-depth learning path with coaching, mentoring, facilitating and teaching skills to create environments of collaboration.
We believe that a 2 days certified course and a badge could not be enough for everybody in this volatile and complex world. Agile is not a destination, but a journey of continuous learning and improvement. Hence, we designed learning paths that explore several Agile subjects tailored to different business environments with real scenarios and 1-to-1 mentorship. For organizations, we adapted our learning paths so our trainers can help you solve your current challenges on-site.
All learning paths were designed to help you from a beginner level to a more advanced and specialized one. The Unlocking agility level is highly recommended if you don’t have experience or basic knowledge about Agile. If you feel like you don’t need it and you are in a more advanced level, just tell us and we will send you an assessment to test your knowledge and support your decision. We want to help you fulfill your career objectives.
