Event description


Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a 2-day 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.

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.
