Become a Professional Scrum Master! 

You work with Scrum Teams, or you’ve completed our Scrum Foundation and are eager to learn more. Great news! But how to become a Professional Scrum Master?

As a Professional Scrum Master, you know how to make teams excel. That requires more than basic knowledge. Our PSM I training provides you with the insights and skills to be an authority.

The PSM I training is perfect for...

You have completed our Scrum Foundation course, gained experience on the job, or read about Scrum. Or maybe you are quite new to it all. The PSM I training is perfect for anyone who wants to know more about Scrum and is eager to officially become a Professional Scrum Master.

What will you learn during the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) training?

First, we take a look at the theory of Scrum. Creating an in-depth understanding of the framework is essential for your work as a Scrum Master. We also talk about the different roles within a team and your role as Professional Scrum Master. What does it mean to be a Scrum Master, and what’s your relationship to, for instance, a Product Owner?

After this, we dive deeper into the matter. What is true leadership? And, how do events help you to create a high-value product? After the training course, you will be able to set up a Scrum Team and deal with complex Scrum issues.


  • Scrum Theory & Principles
  • Scrum Framework: the history of the framework, and all roles and events.
  • Scrum product management: a deep-dive into forecasts, releases, and the importance of a Backlog.
  • Scrum product delivery: from software development to the definition of a Technical Risk.
  • Scrum Teams: what are self-managing teams and what types of leadership match Scrum?
