PMI-ACP is suitable for any individual who works in Agile and wishes to learn more about Agile. Agile is not limited to IT.
I did the PMI-ACP and I come from Structural Engineering / Construction backgrounds.
Unfortunately PMI-ACP is just for software. When you read the study materials and things like the Agile component inside the PMBOK you will find it. Unfortunately this is the orientation PMI followed. Perhaps something will change now that PMI have include DA inside its set of approaches. But Agile is not for software. Agile was born outside the software field in 1990 to find an alternative to Lean mainly in the manufacture domain. Time after (almost in paralllel) the software domain take the concept and implement it more closely to Lean in the beginning. So, I am PMI-ACP and I have used Agile for creating software and non software solutions from the time where Agile was "invented" up to date.
Rami and Sergio made good points.
PMI-ACP is ideal for software development and IT projects because they are based often in agile orientation, but it doesn't mean that this approach can't be applied to other industries. A study of the type of work, products, and organization culture, may give an orientation to choose between agile, hybrid or cascade approaches.
Thanks . It would be great if you can kindly share the prospects of PMI-ACP in career for non- IT people. I come from Manufacturing Projects and Sales background
