Accredited by Scrum.org, the international Home of Scrum, the 2-day PSM course teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement. It covers the principles and process theory underpinning the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master in it. The course also teaches how to use Scrum, how to optimise value, reduce total cost of ownership and deliver more frequently.
The course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. Participants learn through instruction, real-life cases and team-based exercises and are challenged to think on their feet to better understand what to do when they return to their workplaces.
The course provides cutting-edge instruction for aspiring Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a development team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness.
When you attend a Scrum.org class, it is not a throw of the dice. What you get is the highest quality materials and the highest quality trainers to teach them:

The Professional Scrum Master course is for anyone using the Scrum framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people within an organisation accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, managers, and Scrum Team members.
Typical attendance includes:
What is Scrum and how has it evolved?
Why does Scrum work and what are its core principles? How are the Scrum principles different from those of more traditional software development approaches, and what is the impact?
How Scrum theory is implemented using time-boxes, roles, rules, and artefacts. How can these be used most effectively and how can they fall apart?
Scrum is different: what does this mean to my project and my organisation? How do I best adopt Scrum given the change that is expected?
A system isn’t just developed, it is also sustained, maintained and enhanced. How is the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of our systems or products measured and optimised?
Scrum Teams are self-organising and cross-functional; this is different from traditional development groups. How do we start with Scrum teams and how do we ensure their success?
Plan a project and estimate its cost and completion date.
Scrum is empirical. How can predictions be made, risk be controlled, and progress be tracked using Scrum. Discussion starts with “Done and Undone” and continues with Quality Assurance in Scrum.
Scrum works great with one team. It also works better than anything else for projects or product releases that involve hundreds or thousands of globally dispersed team members. How is scaling best accomplished using Scrum?

Professional Scrum Master Course + Certificate Exam
When you take the ALC PSM course you will receive a voucher for the PSM Level I (PSM I) assessment exam. The exam is taken online after the course at a time of your choosing.
When you attend a Scrum.org training class you learn the importance of inspection, adaptation, and fast feedback cycles. To reinforce those concepts, if you attend the Scrum.org class and attempt the certification assessment within 14 days but do not achieve the required score, you will be given a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.
