    This live virtual PSM class runs 16-17 August 2021, 09:00-17.00 BST.


    Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).


    Students will see why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioral shifts.


    Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.


    The PSM course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.

    All experience levels are welcome. No previous Scrum training or experience is required, though it is recommended that participants read the Scrum Guide before the course.


    For all of our live virtual classes, we use Zoom as our conference tool. Zoom is very secure. It uses end-to-end encryption and delegates can only access the conference via an admin controlled waiting room. Activities are carried out with Mural and Jamboard. No software is required to be installed for these tools, though you may need to check that there are no security policies that block the use of these tools if you are joining us through a corporate network. We ask you to try to ensure a steady internet connection (for example by connecting through cable rather than with WiFi).




    All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment. PSM class participants who attempt the PSM I assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score the pass mark of at least 85% will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.



    "The programme was very well designed and executed. David is an excellent trainer."

    "Excellent course, very interactive. David is very knowledgeable and the class was designed to engage us and have us learn by doing, rather than only focusing on the theory. Highly recommended!"

    -Salvator Demelas, Project Manager
