Frequently Answered Questions:
Do I need to know anything about Scrum before I attend class?
No prior knowledge of Scrum is required and beginners are welcome. Adam has helped hundreds of people get their start with Scrum.
What is the class format like?
Adam Weisbart uses Scrum to teach Scrum, combining your training with practical experience with the framework.
The course is split into two focused work periods — called ‘sprints’ — each lasting a day. Each sprint has its own backlog (a detailed description of required accomplishments) and you’ll be able to track progress towards your certification using burndown charts.
Learning the language of Scrum is part of the course, so don’t worry if that sounds jargon heavy.
Adam’s course maintains a comfortable, sustainable pace as required by Scrum. Each sprint includes at least two mini-breaks (at around 10:30am and 2:30pm) and a longer lunch break (around noon).
Any extra encouragement for the test-phobic?
Adam hates taking tests, too. Understanding your trepidation, he’ll do everything he can to make the Scrum Alliance test as painless as possible. To start, you’ll get to take a full practice exam at the end of day two. If that test proves challenging for you, Adam will make himself available to answer your questions by phone, Skype, or email.
99% of Adam’s students pass the CSM test on their first try because they’re prepared. You’ll be prepared, too.
Is food included?
Yes. And it is delicious. We provide a light breakfast, snacks, and a full lunch.
We will do our best to take dietary requests into consideration or you are always welcome to bring in your own food.
Does Adam teach courses on-site for companies and organizations?
Most definitely. If you’ve got several participants who want to earn their CSM, Adam can tailor a course to meet your needs and schedule time to work with you at the location of your choosing. Just get in touch.
