Professional Scrum Master (PSM) Training
PSM Training is a combination of instructions and team-based exercises and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement. Throughout the course, individuals are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).
