About The Online Professional Scrum Master Course

What makes this PSM1 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?

Frequently Asked Questions

Two weeks before the start of the course, and before each session you will receive part of your workbook. We ask you to print the pages and use them during the session. At the end of the program you can bind them together with the slides you found interesting and other notes you took during the session, to keep as a reference.

After having successfully completed the PSM1 exam, you will be receieving your certificate via email.

We will send you an invitation to join our Zoom conference room by email. The link will open a window. If you have never used Zoom before, we recommend you open this window a couple of minutes before the session starts so you can download the application if your browser requires this. You can then keep the window open untill your trainer opens the classroom and the session begins.

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. These sessions are there to help you get on your feet as Professional Scrum Master, but if you wish, you may address a completely different challenge with your coach. It is up to you how you use these valuable moments with your coach.
