Professional Scrum Master Course with Ralph Jocham! 6th and 7th April 2022 [online]

We continue with our Scrum training series with one of the most popular courses – Professional Scrum Master – and we bring one of the top trainers!

Learn Scrum From Those Who Created and Maintain It

Professional Scrum MasterTM (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 team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioural 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.

How You Will Learn?

Our trainings have always been characterized by the interaction of trainers and participants, as well as a “hands-on” approach in mastering the material and acquiring knowledge. We have ensured and tested in practice the continuity of these important ingredients with the help of the communication tools Zoom and Mural.

In the online environment, participants and the trainer are together on the Zoom platform (using breakout rooms), and we have replaced the use of cards and other tools in the classroom with digital – for visual collaboration – Mural, which we use as a platform for many exercises with participants during training.

Professional Scrum Master Certification

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment. PSM class participants who attempt the PSM I assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score at least 85% will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.

Why provides the highest quality Scrum training, training materials and certified Professional Scrum Trainers (PSTs) to teach them. Our training materials are created and maintained by Scrum co-creator Ken Schwaber, and the community of PSTs who teach the courses, helping to ensure that they are in tune with what’s happening in software development organizations and always up-to-date with the latest practices.

Professional Scrum Trainers bring their own style and experience to the courses, but use the same materials so that students are learning from the same content regardless of who teaches the course or where it is taught around the world.  Read more about the differences.
