ABOUT THE COURSE

Scrum is deceptively simple: it can be taught in two days. Truly mastering Scrum requires a lot more practice, however. This two-day Advanced Scrum Master training teaches you how to coach Scrum teams to reach their full potential, even in challenging environments. The course covers facilitation of cross-team interactions to support program execution and relentless improvement.

Benefits of the training

This fully accredited training class enables delegates to take the SAFe Advanced Scrum Master exam in order to receive the SAFe Advanced Scrum Master (SASM) certification.


Through the certification process, you are able to facilitate and execute the program planning and deliver end-to-end systems value. You gain the knowledge to manage high-performing teams and foster relentless improvement at team and program levels.

With your SASM certification, you will also have access to a one-year membership with Scaled Agile. Through this membership you can join local user groups, online social networks and additional member-only resources.
