agile42's highly interactive introduction to the principles and practices of Agile and the Scrum framework provides an energetic yet deep introduction to Agile and how it works.
We offer this as in-person training as well as remotely (2 days).
The Scrum Master Journey
Our Certified Scrum Master (CSM) training class is a learning experience that provides students a full immersion into what it takes to be a great Scrum Master. You will learn the theory, the values and elements that define the Scrum framework, and how a great Scrum Master uses them skill-fully in the service of the Team, the Product Owner and the whole organization.
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. We will approach the class at a sustainable pace and endeavour to take breaks often, to allow our brain to stay focused and our body to recharge when necessary.
Upon completion of the class, students will be eligible to take the Certified Scrum Master exam and become a Certified Scrum Master (CSM).
There is no pre-requisite for attending this class.
The Certified Scrum Master course is appropriate for aspiring Scrum Masters, development team members, managers, project managers, and organizational team leaders seeking a deep understanding of the principles and practices of Scrum, and those seeking to be an effective Servant Leader or Scrum Master within an Agile team or organization.

“I can honestly say this was hands down the best training class I have ever attended. You guys do an amazing job facilitating and keeping people interested. I am so excited to use the new tools in my toolbox for my sprint planning on Monday, and easily passed the CSM test with the knowledge I obtained in your class."
