Advance your career with Professional Scrum Master Certification

Scrum is arguably the most popular Agile framework. It breaks down big complex projects into phases or stages called “sprints” which are managed one at a time. The Scrum Master plays an essential role in getting the best out of the Scrum framework and in inspiring the Scrum team to learn from their experiences, self-manage themselves, and continuously improve by reflecting on wins and losses.

The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) Certification course highlights the importance of leadership in Scrum and Agile project management. With newly acquired Scrum education, you will be able to help out your team members by successfully leading Scrum teams and Scrum projects.

By attending this scrum master course, not only will you surmount Scrum terminology, practices and principles, but also will get prepared to pass the Professional Scrum MasterTM Level I (PSM I) examination. You will be taught by an experienced Scrum Master who will provide you with invaluable skills you can later adapt to your own project’s needs.

What will I learn in the PSM Scrum training Course?

During this Scrum Master certification online course, you will learn about the Scrum Framework, Leadership, Lean Thinking, and the Agile Values & Principles. Upon completion, you will have attained the fundamental knowledge of Scrum and the necessary skills and techniques needed to deliver even the most complex projects on time.

This training will prepare you for the Scrum Master role by teaching you how to implement Scrum principles and Scrum values successfully in your organisation and bring it closer towards the achievement of the goal.

Really well-organised course
I had taken Scrum course in the Institute. It was really well-organised - the admin staff was very helpful, the technical background is easy to set up, good materials and the instructor was great.
Excellent Scrum training content, presenter and preparation for an online examination
We had a small class of students from all kinds of different backgrounds - HR, IT, Sales, Product Owner. I highly recommend the Institute. They offer considerable value add. Had a query and the head of course (was not expecting it) took a short phone call out of hours so that will tell you the customer mantra. Go for it!
I'd highly recommend the Institute of Project Management
I've been working in Tech for 8 years now and the Agile class turned into a huge unlock for me, it was the way our dev teams have been doing business and the environment we work in the entire time. I look forward to getting my next PM credential from you.
Highly recommended
The class was very informative and presented by great speakers throughout.
