This course is designed to assist traditional project managers, test professionals, analysts and engineers as they transition into their new roles as agile team members, product owners, ScrumMasters, and facilitators of large scale Scrum at the organizational level. The primary focus of the course is on the ScrumMaster role, but anyone needing an understanding of the basic Scrum framework will find this course valuable.

This 2-day event presents the attendee with an outstanding opportunity to become immersed in learning Agile principles and the Scrum Framework. The trainers will actively engage you, entertain you, and most of all stimulate you to think about new ways of working. Come prepared to learn! Come with an open mind! You will leave with some fundamentally new ideas, a surge of energy and of course a CSM certification along with 14 PDUs to keep up your PMP certification and help prepare for the PMI-ACP.

Your ScrumMaster Certification is your first major step in the journey towards this adaptive and empirical form of work organization. It will familiarize you with all the elements of the Scrum framework. Your next step will be to gain the experience necessary to become a Certified Scrum Professional (CSP). Even though this is an introductory course, some persons already experienced in the Scrum framework decide to attend this class because they seek the industry standard CSM certification.

Your trainer has years of experience helping individuals, teams, and organizations adopt Scrum so they will be able to answer your questions from a rich experience base.
