PSMPO Certification Training Details
This unique 3-day Professional Scrum Master and Product Owner (PSMPO) course combines the key learning objectives from both the Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM) and Professional Scrum Product Owner™ (PSPO) courses. Participants will benefit from building a shared understanding or each role while avoiding any duplicate content from taking the classes separately. This course includes two attempts at both the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) and Professional Scrum Product Owner I (PSPO I) certification assessments.
Throughout the class, students will develop and solidify their fundamental Scrum knowledge and have opportunities to expand their way of thinking about what it takes to be part of a self-managing team. They will explore both the inward facing mindset and the outward facing skills needed to deliver value and create impactful customer outcomes on a frequent basis. Accountabilities of the Scrum Master and Product Owner are interwoven with the Scrum values and the pillars of empiricism in a way that challenges students to immediately approach work in new ways following the class. PSMPO is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students engage in hands-on activities and explore real-life cases for how Scrum Masters and Product Owners can be successful.

Who Should Attend
The Professional Scrum Master and Product Owner course is designed for Scrum Masters and Product Owners to learn together. This is especially important as they collectively provide leadership that Scrum Teams need to satisfy stakeholders, including customers and users through the early and continuous delivery of value. When bringing this course into your organization, take care to include participants that will be working on teams together. We suggest participants read through the PSM Focus Areas as well as the PSPO Focus Areas before the class.
