Professional Scrum Master II

Live Virtual Class, June 20-23, 2022

Class Overview

--> This Class is Guaranteed to Run!!

Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) course is a multi-day advanced Scrum Master class designed to support you in your ongoing professional development.  The PSM II class is intended for Scrum Masters with at least one year of experience looking to grow their knowledge and abilities as a Scrum Master. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) certification exam.

Unlike the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course, which focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master, PSM II is an advanced course that dives deeper into how you can improve your effectiveness in serving the Scrum Team, Product Owner and organization. Through innovative interactions, you will explore related practices and skills to have the right conversations and apply them to become a better Scrum Master.

After the class, you will get a passcode to take the PSM II assessment. After passing the assessment, you will gain the industry-recognized PSM II certification, which will never expire.

This highly interactive class is delivered virtually over four half-day sessions, which our students love! Our half-day sessions allow you to balance the course with your work, while enabling high focus and deep learning during class time.

As an added benefit of attending this class from Unstuck Careers, you get a one-hour live virtual professional coaching session after the class. You can use this session for PSM II assessment preparation, coaching to apply what you have learned, or whatever else you need!

Private classes and group discounts are available - reach out to mark@unstuckcareers.com for more information.

"For anyone on the fence about this class, I ask you take a leap of faith. This class was my favorite Scrum-related class BECAUSE Mark facilitated it so well. You'll learn a lot about not only Scrum, but yourself as a member of a Scrum team, coming away a better Scrum Master for having taken this class."
