Scrum Master

What makes the best Scrum Master training? Learning it from people who do it every day. The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course from is the global standard in agile training. Taught by New Zealand’s longest-standing Scrum trainer, Edwin Dando, who learned Scrum directly from the creators Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber. If you want to learn how to master Scrum, this is the course for you.



The Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM) course offers an engaging and interactive learning experience. It focuses on activity-based instruction to help students thoroughly grasp the fundamentals of Scrum.

Participants will develop a profound understanding of Scrum’s core principles. We will also unpack the agile mindset, and what makes a high-performing Scrum team.


This course includes the PSM1 Assessment (the base-level certification for Scrum Masters), as part of the fee. The assessment is done after the course, in your own time. All details are supplied as part of the course, including tips and tricks for preparing for the assessment.




This Scrum Master course uses experiential learning techniques and is best learned in person, not online. While we have taught it online during lockdown, experience has taught us that people learn much more when collaborating in person. We therefore only offer this two-day course in person.

What other people said

This was hands down the best course I have ever attended. I feel really cheated for having done the Scrum Master assessment on my own and not getting the benefits of taking this course. Really well put together and explained and the use of anecdotal learning was phenomenal.

Jaime Ginnever — NZME

"The techniques taught in this course are relevant, powerful and actionable – and I believe will have a positive impact on our team as we can set priorities and make hard decisions that were, up to now, not being made to the detriment of the product, the customer and the business."

— Rob MacGregor

"The course was presented by Edwin and, from the beginning, you can see that he’s really passionate about the subject and has a lot of experience. I found the number of real-world experiences shown during the course really helped me to grasp the concepts and see how I can approach my current company/team."

Eduardo Maino – Orion Health

"Edwin Dando is truly a next-level coach – he does not simply regurgitate content but provides real life examples to back it up. There is a real feeling of a wealth of knowledge and experience. He also adapts the course content and delivery to the experience of the participants. Although I have completed facilitation and Scrum Master training before, I really enjoyed training with Edwin and felt that it provided a fresh perspective on Scrum principles."
