Professional Scrum Master
Live Virtual Class, June 12-13, 2023
Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a 2-day course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, 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 also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).
What You Will Learn
Over the 2 days, students will see why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioural shifts.
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.
The course covers all the topics related to Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I), Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) and Professional Scrum Master III (PSM III) certification assessments.
Who Should Attend
The Professional Scrum Master course is for anyone involved in product delivery using the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people within an organization accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, managers, and Scrum Team members.

What Clients Have To Say About The Trainer:
“Two days passed like a couple of hours - training was super intensive, full of different activities with involvement of the whole group generating interesting ideas and thoughts to think about afterwards.”
- Eugene Kuznetsof
“Transforming 2-day Experience: The two-day Professional Scrum Master 1 (Live Virtual) course by Wim Heemskerk was very productive and helped me to make my Scrum concepts clearer and now I am more confident in using them. The way he let us participate in tasks and made us find solutions to our doubts and tasks was a 2-day long example of a Servant Leader. He made us work in the different teams and in parallel connected the threads of Scrum values, rules and framework. The best thing about Wim is that he makes sessions very interactive and involved every member. You really justify your name Wim "The Wavemaker" :). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
- Gaurav Garttan
"Wim has been a great inspiration to me in becoming and thinking more Agile. Combining his technical background and testing skills (and with a lot of enthusiasm!), Wim showed us testers how developers think and what they need, thereby showing us testers how to keep adding value in an Agile development team. Great guy to work with and listen to!"
- Leo Thijssen. Capgemini
"I had an opportunity to work with Wim during preparations and review of a special edition of a Professional Scrum Developer course. Wim proved not only to be a great craftsman, plainly destroying every problem thrown at him, but also an extraordinary observer. His comments on improvements were precise and pushed teamwork forward a lot. In addition to that he gave a great presentation of his training skills. I'm definitely recommending him as a professional, coach and a teacher."
- Kate Hobler. Guiding organizations to make products happen
