Course Description

This two-day course not only provides the fundamental principles of Scrum, it also gives participants hands-on experience using Scrum. This course puts theory into action through a variety of exercises.

During the course, attendees will learn why such a seemingly simple process such as Scrum can have such profound effects on an organization. Participants gain practical experience working with Scrum tools and activities such as the product backlog, sprint backlog, daily Scrum meetings, sprint planning meeting, and burndown charts. Participants leave knowing how to apply Scrum to all sizes of projects, from a single collocated team to a large, highly distributed team.

Following successful completion of the course, you will be qualified and ready to pass the new Scrum Alliance certification test. This multiple-choice, online test is required to become a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available. For more information on the certification exam, see this page about the CSM exam.

This course earns you 16 SEUs (Category B) within the Scrum Alliance. This course also earns you 15 PDUs within the PMI. SEUs and PDUs can be used toward CSP, PMP, PMI-ACP and other certifications.

This course will be held at the DoubleTree Northwest Austin Arboretum and will run from 8:30am - 4:30pm.

  • Practical, project-proven practices
  • The essentials of getting a project off on the right foot
