    Our immersive instructional techniques teach you Scrum by having you do Scrum - just as it is done in the real world.  A small sampling of what you'll get:

    •   All class materials for this highly-interactive class, with examples and exercises that truly enable understanding of Scrum, by one of the few agile consulting firms that have been in business for  over a decade

    •   Post-course assessment and Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) registration for each participant with the Scrum Alliance

    •   Sixteen (16) PDUs toward PMI’s PMP and PMI-ACP certifications by a PMI Registered Education Provider®

    •   Two-year membership for each class participant with the Scrum Alliance

    •   A 132-page student guide for note taking and future reference


    A thousand student recommendations speak to our superior training:
