The Professional Scrum Foundations (PSF) course is a 2-day course that teaches Scrum in a highly practical way. Working in a series of Sprints, teams of students build a software application, thereby facing real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, principles and (empirical) process of Scrum are demonstrated. Common missteps and misunderstandings are discussed so students grow a higher awareness of their symptoms. This PSF is excellent training for teams and anyone wanting to experience the Scrum way of working.
Students receive one free attempt at the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment to earn the industry-recognized PSM I certificate. Learn more about Scrum.org certificates.
