Having taken and passed the PSM I course and assessment, I was wondering if this would be enough to pass the PSPO assessment?

There is a specific course for this, but wondered if it was required to pass the PSPO assessment?

Hi Andrec,

do you believe that Scrum Master and Product Owner need to know the same things? Are you working as a Product Owner?

Right now, the PSPO course is required in order to do the PSPO I assessment.

No I know they are different, no I just want to increase my knowledge on the scrum roles.

Oh ok, I thought it was open just like the PSM I

It's not open yet.

On… it reads "At present, the PSPO I assessment and certification is open only to those who have taken a Professional Scrum Product Owner course. Assessment is currently based on the body of knowledge contained in the courseware. Once the body of knowledge has been formalized as a Scrum Product Owner Guide, the assessment will be open to the public and anyone – including those who have not taken a Professional Scrum Product Owner course – will be able to assess themselves."

I guess this means we should stay tuned on changes to this assessment. In the meanwhile I suggest you work closely with POs or try to fill the role yourself to increase your knowledge.
