Through innovative interactions, students explore related practices and skills to enable them to have the right types of conversations and apply them to become better Scrum Masters.

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

What Our Students Are Saying

  • "The best instructor ever!"
  • "Loved the exercises! They kept the learning real and applicable."
  • "My favorite part was that the instructor could accommodate all levels of learning - novice to expert."
  • "Real-life examples were so helpful and showed how to solve problems while staying true to the framework."

I recently had the pleasure of attending the Professional Scrum Master training taught by John in conjunction with Scrum.org. John is one of the most effective and concise instructors I have had the pleasure of being taught by. He was able to take the potentially overwhelming amount of agile framework information and deliver it to a class of people who had an extremely diverse set of backgrounds and skill levels. He was able to take complex subjects, explain them directly and with emphasis on the most important and functional information. I left this short course feeling extremely well prepared to start engaging the Scrum framework professionally and to guide other teammates on its use as well. I look forward to hopefully enrolling in more of his classes as the opportunity presents itself professionally. Thank you, John!

I had the opportunity to learn from John in his Professional Scrum Master class. John was not only extremely knowledgable about the framework of SCRUM, but he brought years of experience consulting various organizations to achieve their vision. The experience and stories breathed life into the material and made the class that much more impactful to my learning. I absolutely recommend John to anyone who is interested in learning how to cultivate high performing teams through the SCRUM framework.
