    Hi,

    I am wanting to take the PSPO course but being based in South Africa, attending the required course is a challenge. I know there was mention in 2012 that the PSPO assessment would become open, with no requirements, has there been any further development regarding this?

    Do I have any other options?

    Thanks,
    Justin

    Also from South Africa. I just passed my PSM-I and would love to know the same thing for my PO to get certified.

    Just adding here. The only Scrum.org certified Scrum training in South Africa is Mandy Schoeman of Scrum Solutions (www.scrumsolutions.co.za). Based in Cape Town. Might be worth contacting her to find out about the course?

    For those interested in sitting the PSPO assessment without the coursework, see scrum.org's response below:

    Date: Mon, 2 Dec 2013 14:21:35 -0500

    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in Scrum.org and for your message. At this time, only students who have taken a Scrum.org PSPO course with a Professional Scrum Trainer (as certified by Scrum.org) is allowed access to take our PSPO I and PSPO II assessments. Please note however, that although this is our current policy, that within the next 6 months or less we will be changing this policy and detaching these assessments from our course. This means, in 6 months or less, you will be able to purchase an attempt at the PSPO I assessment from our website whether or not you have attended a Scrum.org PSPO course. For the time being however, an individual still needs to take a Scrum.org PSPO course in order to gain access to our assessment. Thank you again for your interest in Scrum.org and enjoy your day.

    P.S.

    Also, In case you are interested, I have just added your name/email address to a waiting list of individuals who we will email to notify once the PSPO I assessment has been made available to the general public for purchase at our website. We are quite certain this will be made available within 6 months or less, but hopefully it will be completed and go into effect within the next 3 months. Regardless, we will notify you once the PSPO I assessment is available to the public for purchase. Thanks!

    Sincerely,

    The Scrum.org Support Team
