Professional Scrum Master™ Certification

Demonstrate your knowledge with the most respected certification in the industry.

Course Description

What is a Professional Scrum Master™

Professional Scrum Masters demonstrate knowledge and understanding of Scrum and their ability to apply it in real-world situations.

In this two day class* learners learn to apply Professional Scrum. They experience new, agile ways of working that enable teams to deliver more value, satisfy stakeholders and work better together. Learners work together as a team in a series of Sprints to solve complex problems, facing similar challenges that they face outside of class and learning how to use Scrum to address them. These Sprints enable learners to see the practical application of Scrum and to understand the value of an Agile mindset. Additionally, these Sprints expose common missteps and misunderstandings often seen while using Scrum, allowing learners to develop an awareness of the associated symptoms and how to correct them. Learners not only learn Scrum; they learn how to use Scrum well.

Who Should Attend this class?

The Applying Professional Scrum course is the perfect introduction, reboot or refresher to Scrum. It is excellent training for organizations, teams, and individuals wanting to experience the benefits of Scrum, or for those interested in continuing their learning with more advanced training.

  • Professionals who are part of a team that currently uses Scrum, but desire a refresher so that they get the most out of their use of Scrum. 
  • Professionals who are joining a team that currently uses Scrum. 
  • Professionals that don’t use Scrum directly but want to learn how to work with colleagues that do use Scrum. 
  • Professionals that are investigating to see if Scrum makes sense for them and their colleagues.
  • Professionals that are part of an organization that intends to use Scrum in the near future.
  • Teams who are learning to use Scrum together in their organizations

The course also provides the foundational Scrum knowledge needed for those wishing to continue their education with role-focused (Scrum Master, Product Owner, Developer, Leader) training classes. APS is not recommended for advanced Scrum professionals.

This course is designed to be domain-agnostic; it conveys the use of Scrum in any domain or industry with complex problems to solve. Trainers typically have experience in multiple industries and may be able to tailor the course to the needs of your team.
