Course Overview

BECOME A PROFESSIONAL SCRUM MASTER!

The highly interactive Professional Scrum Master course investigates the Scrum framework in detail from theory and foundations to practical application and pitfalls, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement.

The course will cover all the team roles, events, and artifacts so that you can be an effective Scrum Master or member of a Scrum team.

Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.

The PSM course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.

Included within your course:

  • High-quality instruction from a Scrum.org Trainer and hands-on Agile Practitioner 
  • Course materials handbook (online PDF)
  • Recognition by Scrum.org as a Professional Scrum Master after passing the exam
  • Password to take the PSM I assessment and 2nd Attempt is included if taken within 14 days of the course
  • A free book (e.g. Mastering Professional Scrum/Scrum - A Pocket Guide/..) - either paper version or kindle version - based on your location and preference.
  • Additional after-course assessment preparation session 90 minutes - so that on the course we can fully focus on the content of the course!
  • In case of failed attempt yet additional session to revisit questions and help the student to pass
