"Excellence is the standard we measure ourselves against here at Procept," says Carlo Barrettara, President of Procept Associates Ltd. "Excellence in our course offerings, excellence in our consulting and training staff, and excellence in our customer service. Excellence is why customers choose Procept."

One way of measuring excellence is to see whether or not clients are expanding their relationship with a company. Procept management is pleased to announce that the Professional Development arm of the University of Waterloo's Centre for Extended Learning has expanded its relationship with Procept. In addition to the existing business analysis courses that Procept provides currently, the university has now expanded the relationship to include the delivery of its Agile Project Management course.

"We are thrilled that the university has selected us as their training provider for this course. Our continued investments in course updates and expanding course accreditations and certifications are clearly paying off," notes Barrettara.

Procept's continually-evolving flagship 3-day agile course now meets the educational requirements for three certifications:

  • PMI's Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) — after taking this course, those who meet additional requirements can apply for this certification through PMI.
  • Certified Agile Project Manager (Cert.APM) — this exam is available immediately upon completion of this course, often offered in-class on the last day.
  • Scrum Master Certification (SMC) — this exam is available online immediately upon completion of this course.


Called "Canada's leading agile expert" by CBS, Procept's Agile Practice Lead, Kevin Aguanno, notes that "the latest changes to the long-running course, plus the new certification exams offered at the end of the course make it the most sought-after agile project management course in the country. Procept first delivered an earlier version of this course through another university during the 2003/2004 school year and has been offering updated versions of this course ever since. No other agile project management course in Canada has trained — and certified — more people than this one."

Procept's first delivery of the course for the University of Waterloo's Centre for Extended Learning will be in February 2017.
