If you’d like to learn the basics of Scrum and working Agile, you can obtain a Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master 1 (PSM 1) certification by following this training course. In this new flipped learning format, you can learn at your own pace while still reflecting and practicing together with peers during in-class meetups.
Over a four-week period, the flipped learning course content is divided into four learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading materials, and quizzes that are provided for self-study. You will join a half-day session once a week with your classmates and a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) in a dynamic and interactive environment.
In these classroom settings, we will have a focused deep dive into the concepts of Scrum and the Scrum Master accountability through group activities, interactions, and the sharing of experiences, all together with your Professional Scrum Trainer.
However, obtaining new knowledge through self-study materials, along with having an in-depth, rich engagement in a class, allows you to enjoy learning in a different way. The globally recognized Professional Scrum 1 (PSM 1) certification exam is included in the course fee.
What will you learn?
You will leave this course with an appreciation for Professional Scrum, the Agile mindset, and how to deal with common myths and impediments to agility. Gain the knowledge and understanding of how to choose and apply the appropriate practices and techniques that will be most beneficial for your Scrum Team(s).
