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.
This two-day course will cover the fundamentals of Scrum, the roles and framework, and focus on the role of the ScrumMaster. Attendees will learn how to run projects using Scrum, including requirements, estimation and dates and delivery.
The course is taught interactively, not by a presentation. Students will have a 100+ page handbook to for outline and notes, as well as a 30+ page post-training follow-up document. Real life examples of helping companies start with agile, as well as correcting problems, will use shared to reinforce key concepts, as well as numerous exercises. The course is taught at a high energy level, with humor and discussion, personable and engaging.
Sixteen (16) PDUs toward PMI’s PMP and PMI-ACP certifications, and two days towards the Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Developer certification.
