Free/Charity Pay-It-Forward CSM Course
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.
Standard Certified ScrumMaster training, but spread across two Saturdays - Saturday, March 12th and 19th, from 9 AM - 5 PM. Graciously hosted by Vineyard Christian Fellowship, 5340 E. La Palma, Anaheim, CA.
How it works:
- If you are currently out of work, that's all that is expected. And out of work means loss of and looking for full time work. This is not for contractors in between gigs. I will ask for proof of unemployment status. This class is me paying it forward for the opportunities I have been given.
- If you work for a non-profit, that's all that is expected. I will ask for proof of employment with a nonprofit. This class is to gift to you for the work you do.
- If you are currently employed, you will have the opportunity to donate to charities that will be presented at the training. The class and certification are a gift to you for a donation of $200 or more to any of the charities presented. I will cover the details of how to make the donations at the training. That is you pay it forward to benefit others. If you decide not to donate, the $50 will be used to cover class material costs and a gift back to the host (Vineyard).
The agenda is the standard CSM material: Background and history of agile and Scrum, the Scrum framework, the roles, meetings and artifacts of Scrum. There will be lots of exercises and interactions. You'll also hear from some charities that you can donate.
All those who want to change the world. Preferably no takers, but perhaps they'll be changed into givers by the end of the course.
