    Location: Anaheim, CA, United States

    Regular Price: $700

    Standard Certified ScrumMaster training, but on a Friday and Saturday and delivered as a give-back. All will be will go to charities and non-profit causes.  

    Friday and Saturday, 9 AM - 5 PM. Graciously hosted by Vineyard Christian Fellowship, 5340 E. La Palma, Anaheim, CA. 

     

    How it works:

    Register via the blue button to the right, and if you are employed by a for-profit company, select whether it is the standard class ($700). If you work for a nonprofit or government agency or are in-transition, select the $70 item and select your status. The $70 covers the Scrum Alliance $50 fee for membership and certification, and $20 for the 100 slide handout and other class materials. 

    • If you work for a non-profit or government agency, that's all that is expected. I will ask for verification if you don't register with a .org, .edu or .gov address. 
    • If you are currently employed, you will have the opportunity to vote for allocation of class funds to charities that will be presented at the training. That is you paying it forward to benefit others.
    • If you are unemployed or in transition, must come with verification from or through a third party. Photos/scans of EDD stubs work. I can no longer take direct requests on this because it has been abused by people claiming they were unemployed, but were actually contractors or entrepreneurs (that is, non-fulltime employee by choice). Thank you for your understanding in this. Also, if you are registering as a non-profit, government or university, please register with that account.

    Once the class is full, I will email all the registrants with additional details and information.

    All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
