The 2-day Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) course is an advanced class designed to support Scrum Masters in their professional development.
Unlike the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course which focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master, PSM II is an advanced course which helps students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader. The class dives deep into how Scrum Masters serve the Scrum Team, Product Owner, and the organization.
Students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master such as how the principles and values of Scrum help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make and how the Scrum Master can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating the conditions for agility to thrive. Students will also explore related practices and skills which will enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters.
Throughout the class, your PST will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources, and more.
The Professional Scrum Master II course is an advanced course specifically designed for experienced Scrum Masters who have a thorough understanding of the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for those with at least one year of Scrum Master experience.
Professional Scrum Master II Course + Certificate Exam
All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master II course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master II assessment, and are also entitled to a 40% discount on the PSM III assessment. These industry-recognized PSM certifications require a minimum passing score on these rigorous assessments.
The Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master II is a prestige certification that has two levels of certification: PSM I and PSM II. When you take this course you will receive a voucher to take the PSM II assessment. The exam is taken online after the course. The cost of the first attempt is included in the price of the PSM class.
If you take the exam within 14 days of the course you become eligible for a 2nd attempt at no extra cost. The reason for this is that when you attend a Scrum.org training class you learn the importance of inspection, adaptation, and fast feedback cycles. To reinforce these concepts you are encouraged to avoid undue delay and to take your assessment promptly, within 14 days of course attendance. If you do not achieve the required score, you will be given a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.
Students of Scrum.org courses are able to claim Project Management Institute (PMI) PDU credit: 14 PDUs after attending a two-day Professional Scrum Master (PSMII). Please note that PMI PDUs are earned for course attendance and not for passing a Scrum.org assessment. Students can claim PDUs under PMI’s “Education courses provided by other third party providers” category. You can claim your PDUs online at https://ccrs.pmi.org.
