Become a Professional Scrum Trainer
Join the Community and Enable the World
Professional Scrum TrainersTM (PSTs) are professionals licensed by Scrum.org to teach the official Scrum.org curriculum. They are skilled in software development and/or product management. They are experts in Scrum and have extensive experience applying, leading, teaching, and coaching it. They have been servant-leaders at an organizational level. They are active in local agile and software development communities, as well as the broader global agile and Scrum movements.
All PSTs use the same highly-tuned and standardized Scrum.org courseware. Trainers bring their own style and experience to their courses, but using consistent materials ensures that all PSTs are delivering the same high-quality content to each and every student regardless of which PST teaches the course and where it is taught. These trainers continuously evaluate and improve themselves through the use of student feedback and student assessments. Through our course material crowd sourcing program with our PSTs, they work with Scrum.org to continually improve the courses, and related materials. Such credible and consistent learning experiences are highly recognized in the Scrum training marketplace for consistency, professionalism and the highest quality trainers and materials.

Some Thoughts from Our PSTs
Read this blog on Shirley Santiago's journey to becoming a Scrum.org Professional Scrum Trainer
In this brief video by Professional Scrum Trainer, David Dame , he discusses how he has learned to inspect and adapt in life being born with Cerebral Palsy, how he relates his experiences to Scrum and why being a part of the Scrum.org Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) community has been so valuable to him. David gives insight to what he gets out of being a PST and how other PSTs share, learn and communicate.
"If someone would ask me whether I would recommend for them to go through the PSM TTT experience I would say 9/10 even if they're not sure they want to train. It takes your Scrum knowledge to the next level just to go through the experience." Professional Scrum Trainer Candidate
"I’ve found the structure of the third day really amazing! The honest and quick feedback provided not only by the trainers but also by the other candidates can really help us to improve and grow our training skills." Professional Scrum Trainer Candidate
