Learn how to apply the theory, practices, rules, and values and the world’s most popular agile model.
Learn Scrum From Those Who Created and Maintain It
Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM) is a 2-day course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).
What You Will Learn
Over the 2 days, students will see why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a software development team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioral shifts.
Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.
The PSM course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.

Who Should Attend
The Professional Scrum Master course is for anyone involved in software development using the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people within an organization accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, managers, and Scrum Team members. We also suggest that you read through the PSM Subject Areas.
All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment. If you attempt the PSM I assessment within 14 days and do not score at least 85%, you will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost. You are also entitled to a 40% discount on the PSM II assessment once passing PSM I.
The course material was excellent and extremely well delivered. Additional time was also spent allowing people to share industry examples and the training was also able to use his own experiences as tangle examples of how the training could be used.

The information was succinct and easy to digest. Edwin was a fantastic presenter – engaging, friendly and the atmosphere he created allowed us to speak up without fear of embarrassment if we got things wrong. He also has a great knack for making sure you are engaged and listening – he caught me not actively listening at least once and pulled me back in ensuring I was getting my money’s worth!

This was hands down the best course I have ever attended. I feel really cheated for having done the PSM 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!

A well-rounded package that provides plenty of interaction and presented in an entertaining way – the best training I’ve had.

“Insightful and engaging. Goes into great depths but at the same time easy to understand. Lots of examples and case studies. Really shows the true power of Scrum when you do it right.”

“Edwin is a master in the field that he’s teaching, something you can’t pay enough for. Apart from being a master his way of mixing practical experience stories, with effective solutions provide a perfect learning pathway towards not just qualification, but buy-in and investment of your time into getting this training.”
