    The PMI-OC chapter is proud to present a Certified ScrumMaster Seminar, specifically tailored for project managers.

     

    Agile Project Management is a skill set that is rapidly growing into high demand across many industries.  The most respected and best recognized Agile certification is the “ScrumMaster” from the Scrum Alliance, Inc.  The new certification assessment system from the Scrum Alliance requires PMs to

    1. take a class from a Certified Scrum Trainer
    2. pass an exam to measure the knowledge and experience of individuals who wish to become Certified ScrumMasters
    3. complete an application and pay the appropriate fees.


    By taking this certification seminar you will acquire all of the information needed to successfully complete the certification examination and application process!  We hope you’ll make it a priority to join us. This 2-day class is suitable for anyone using or wanting to use the art of the ScrumMaster.  It is also very valuable for anyone involved in Scrum (Managers, Team Members, Product Managers, etc.).  This program is for people who are familiar with basic Agile concepts but students are not required to be PMPs.

    During this seminar participants experience highly interactive, hands-on training in how to apply Scrum in many project situations. Exercises, case studies, and examples provide mastery of how to be a ScrumMaster.  After successfully completing this class, participants will receive a 1 year prepaid membership in the Scrum Alliance and are eligible to take the Certified ScrumMaster exam

    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.
