About this event

Due to COVID-19, this class will be held virtually. Please use the links below to contact the trainer for more details.

Professional Scrum Trainer's Ryan Ripley and Todd Miller are facilitating this online event. Every participant will receive a digital copy of Ryan and Todd's book, Fixing Your Scrum: Practical Solutions to Common Scrum Problems.

Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a 2-day online course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement.

You will leave class with a possible 16 Scrum Educational Units (SEUs), 16 PMI Professional Development Units (PDUs), and 16 IIBA Certified Education Units (CEUs)!

Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.The PSM course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.

The Professional Scrum Master course is for anyone involved in software development using the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people within an organization accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, managers, and Scrum Team members. No pre-existing knowledge of Scrum is required to attend.

Why Scrum.org

Scrum.org is governed by the originator of Scrum, Ken Schwaber, and as such instructs students on the very core of Scrum. The material content is consistent with all scrum.org trainers, but many brilliant minds have contributed to the training material. The material is intended to transform the way you approach work, not just instructional on the mechanics of Scrum.

Scrum.org trainers have all been rigorously assessed by the scrum.org committee through exams, interviews, mock training, and other means. Less than 5% of those who apply are accepted as trainers.
