Professional Scrum Master (PSM)
Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a 2-day certification course offered both online and in-person that explains the principles and empirical process theory behind the Scrum framework and the important role that the Scrum Master has in it.
This course is a balanced combination of instruction, discussion, and team-based exercises. It includes two attempts at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification assessment (PSM I).
Professional Scrum Master (PSM) Course Details
Over two days, participants will find out why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and anyone coaching a team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. This course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioral shifts.
Students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles so they can understand what to do once they return to the workplace. The PSM course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. Participants work on real-life cases with classmates together as a team.
