Two years ago, Mat Walker ( http://www.matwalker.co.uk/ ) organised a very popular and very successful Agile Certified Scrum Master course in Brighton for a reduced cost for freelancers and small companies. The course was run by Nigel Baker of Agile Bear ( http://www.agilebear.com/ ) who again has kindly agreed to lead the course at a fraction of the normal costs.
Booking and Costs
The cost for the course is as follows and includes certification fees:
• Concession Rate  - £350
• Business Rate  - £850
 Loosely defined as freelancers, contractors, startups, NGOs, charities, micro businesses. Basically the sort of people who couldn't normally afford to pay for training courses. If you're unclear as to whether you qualify for a concession rate, email me. ( email@example.com )
 Everyone else!
There are 15 places available for the course. (8 Concessions and 7 Business tickets)
The ticketing system Eventbrite uses credit card payments. If you'd prefer to pay by some other method then email me
This course is not for profit, the fees pay for the trainers' time, certification fees and expenses. I’ve tried to keep the overheads as low as possible in order to make the course as affordable as possible to everyone. For comparison the going rate for this course in London is £1000+VAT.
Scrum is an iterative, incremental process for developing any product or managing any work.The industry-recognised Certified ScrumMaster Training is the perfect building block to educate and certify your people. Through exercises and peer discussions, attendees realise how much they rely on habits that lower productivity, quality, and return on investment. They also get to experience first-hand how a change to Scrum practices works and feels.Through a mixture of class room study, exercises, pair discussions and real-world trainer experiences, an attendee will learn how a Scrum project works and how to facilitate and coach a Scrum project.
