About The Online Professional Scrum Master Course

What makes this PAL-E Course different

After the training, you are able to set up a Scrum team and handle complex problems with Scrum. As a professional Scrum Master, you know how to make teams excel. This requires more than basic knowledge. Our Scrum Master Certification course gives you the knowledge and skills you need to become an authority in your field.

First, we’ll look at the theory of Scrum. To fully understand the framework, it is essential to have a thorough understanding of it. We also talk about the different roles within a team and your role as a Professional Scrum Master. What does it mean to be a Scrum Master and what is your relationship with, say, a Product Owner? After that, we dive deep. What is servant leadership? And, how do events contribute to creating a high-value product?

We offer an extensive follow-up program to all our students including two sessions with a professional coach. You can claim your two coaching sessions after your course.

It is up to you how you use these valuable moments with your coach.
