The Product Owner Journey

The Product Owner Journey


Our Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO) training is a learning experience for Certified Scrum Product Owners who already have at least one-year experience and want an advanced education to be able to juggle multiple business opportunities and learn how to communicate effectively across a range of stakeholders. The A-CSPO program is the second step in the Scrum Alliance Path to CSP program and it is designed to build on your previous knowledge and experience and further enhance your skills to improve your outreach and work with your development team(s) in the most effective way possible.

The class is presented in a highly interactive and collaborative format with elements of lecture, classroom discussion, exercises, games and simulations, smoothly blended throughout the class. 

Upon completion of the class, students who have at least 1 year experience as a Product Owner will be eligible to become an Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO).


In order to obtain the A-CSPO certification, you will need to attend a A-CSPO training, complete the online pre-course preparation homework, hold a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) certificate and demonstrate at least one-year work experience specific to the role of Product Owner (from within the past five years).

Target audience

The A-CSPO course is appropriate for Certified Scrum Product Owners with at least 1 year experience as a Product Owner. This is the perfect opportunity to further develop in the principles and practices of Agile Product Management, whilst taking the next step on your journey towards becoming a Certified Scrum Professional.

Even though the course is appropriate for Certified Scrum Product Owners with at least 1 years’ experience, you can still attend the class if you are short of your required experience. You will only receive certification after the full 1 year is completed.
