Hey Community, 

I got my PSM1 certificate and my first job a year ago from today, never been so happy with my job! Now after gathering some real life experience and seeing the struggles of a working company I want to expand my knowledge and skillset in both Scrum and the Agile Methodology but am not sure where to start.

PSM2 feels like the way to go for the framework education but I need your assistance in the agile methodology education. I was thinking of doing PAL1 but if you have any other suggestions or feedback please feel free to help out!

PSM II and PSK are what I recommend to every Scrum Master after gaining at minimum of a year of experience.

If you're looking to deepen your understanding of Scrum and the Agile methodology, PSM2 is a great next step. The certification exam is designed to test your knowledge of the Scrum framework and your ability to apply it to complex situations, making it an excellent way to build on your existing knowledge and skills.

Regarding Agile Methodology, the Professional Agile Leadership (PAL) certification may be a good fit for you. This certification is designed for leaders and managers who want to learn more about Agile and how to implement it effectively in their organizations. It covers topics such as Agile leadership, team building, and stakeholder engagement, among others.
