APMG Scrum Master Certification Course

The Agile Business Consortium and APMG collaborated to provide this 2 - day Scrum Master Certification training course.

Scrum is one of the more popular Agile frameworks, with over twenty years of track record helping teams and organisations solve complex problems and delivering innovative solutions. Scrum combines product development, team collaboration and project delivery in one, effective framework.

The co- originators of Scrum, Dr. Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber, both support the effective promotion of Scrum values and practices through The Scrum Guide,  which you can access here.

They describe their creation as "Lightweight, simple to understand, yet difficult to master," and this course has been designed to move you through to mastery on a quicker trajectory.

In a ground- breaking collaboration between APMG and the Agile Business Consortium - this 2 day Scrum Master certification addresses the principles and theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and focuses on the role of the Scrum Master.

This Scrum Master certification offers a unique combination of theory and experiential learning. We provide you with the opportunity to put your new learning into practice so that you progress faster. Our aim is to give you the tools and practices to become a Scrum Master with the finesse and expertise to help build high- performing teams.
