Weekend Certified ScrumMaster Course in Central Illinois on November 5 and 6
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.
The ScrumMaster Certification is a 2-day course introducing the concepts of the Scrum product development process. Participants will become Certified Scrum Masters, a first step in the journey towards this adaptive and empircal form of work organization.
The course is offered by Oobeya Group through the Heartland Community College Corporate Education department. Employers may qualify for grant money that can significantly offset the cost of the course. For more information, contact Teri Payne at Teri.email@example.com or 309-268-8431.
The trainer for this class is Tom Mellor (firstname.lastname@example.org / 309.846.6792). Additional information about the class can also be obtained from Lowell Lindstrom of the Oobeya Group at email@example.com or by phone at 630.335.0889.
