I'm looking for some some scrum training possibilities and found some training institutes that call themselves 'accredited scrum.org training institute'

Are they any better and what have the got to do or provide to get the title 'accredited scrum.org training institute'? Is their quality checked? Do they have better trainers? Do they have to pass an assessment process?

Thanks,

Philipp

Hello Philipp,

 

There is no such thing as an accredited Scrum.org training institute.  We have partners in our Professional Training Network all found here: https://www.scrum.org/professional-training-network and only licensed Professional Scrum Trainers can teach Scrum.org classes whether for one of our PTN members, on their own or for another organization.  

All Scrum.org training is consistent around the globe and all PSTs go through extensive validation, training and experience before being allowed to teach and all teach consistent set of materials.  You can learn more about what makes Scrum.org different here: https://www.scrum.org/why-scrumorg and find all PSTs here: https://www.scrum.org/find-trainers

If you find a class not taught by a PST then it isn't a Scrum.org class and please contact support@scrum.org to let us know that someone is fraudulently posing as such.

Thank you,

Thanks a lot Eric! That's interesting!

So the Companies in the Professional Training Network (about 200 as I see) are also the ones, that scrum.org could recommend, yes?

What do the companies have to provide and assure to become a part of the Professional Training Network? Whats better about them?

Thanks,

Philipp

These companies abide by a set of standards, values and set of criteria in support of their students and are working directly with Scrum.org Professional Scrum Trainers to deliver the courses. PSTs are either on staff or contract and that is something that we verify to ensure you are really getting Scrum.org training.

That said, all Scrum.org Professional Scrum Trainers are equally qualified and trained, so always make sure that you are being trained by a PST.
