The next step in your Agile journey is to achieve your Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner® (A-CSPO) certification in this interactive two-day class.

What You’ll Learn

This course builds on foundational knowledge and implementation techniques and skills that go beyond the basics. It will help you stand out in your industry and distinguish yourself in a global market. The curriculum includes:

  • Manage multiple business initiatives from competing stakeholders
  • Clearly order and express Product Backlog items

  • Define and validate business value
  • Understanding and working with advanced discovery techniques
  • Understanding and using validation techniques to validate product assumptions
  • Increase your credibility as a product expert and become recognized as a person who delivers real business results


Upon completion of the course, students will have an active A-CSPO certification as long as the student:

  • Holds an active Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) certification with the Scrum Alliance.
  • Validates at least 12 months of work experience specific to the role of Product Owner (within the past five years).
