Course Information

This is a two-day accredited course addresses the principles and theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it.

The course leads to the ABC Scrum Master qualification. The purpose of which is to measure whether a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of Agile Principles and The 2020 Scrum Guide, provided as pre-course reading, and a grasp of some fundamental techniques to enable them to start helping teams and organisations adopt Scrum.

This qualification is particularly beneficial for those accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, managers and Scrum team members. It is primarily aimed at individuals wishing to build their competence as a Scrum Master either in preparation for taking on that role or as somebody already fulfilling the role who wants to ensure that they are serving their team and organisation in the right way.

Individuals involved in using the Scrum framework, or managing those that do will also benefit from gaining an understanding of Scrum through gaining this qualification.

The following topics will be covered:

Day 1

  • Scrum Overview
  • Self Organization
  • Agile Fundamentals
  • Empirical Product Development and Scrum Theory
  • Scrum Events
  • The Scrum Team and accountabilities
  • Artifacts and Commitment

  • Sprint Planning and Done

  • Sprint Reviews and Retrospectives

Presented in association with aims4change.

What Our Customers Say


I recently took the Scrum Master course through NILC Training. The trainer, Tony Perks was excellent and brought the course to life and made it a pleasure to attend. Karim Dastgir at NILC was extremely helpful and accommodating when booking the course. The pre-course reading material was sent out in a timely manner. All updates and information sent to attendees was clear and informative. Would highly recommend booking courses through NILC.

Gill Carter

I completed the AgilePM and Scrum Master courses under the excellent leadership of Tony Perks. A fantastic tutor with endless knowledge of Project Management across all methodologies. In addition, none of this was possible without the support, organisation and timely updates I received from Karim Dastgir who has been enormously helpful from start to finish. A great experience all round and I will definitely be coming back to complete further courses!

If you have taken Scrum Master, your exam will be marked by the trainer immediately following the exam and the provisional results are available within an hour. The exam will then be sent to the examination board (APMG) for second marking and your official results will be available in 7-10 working days.

Are there any sample exam papers?


Yes. As part of your Scrum Master training you will be given access to a full sample exam paper.

Will I receive any pre-course reading?


Yes. Approximately 3 weeks prior to the course start date you will receive an electronic copy of The Scrum Guide™ - The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game. 

Are there any additional costs to the course price?


No. Everything is included in the course price. This includes your tuition, course materials, Scrum Guide and the accredited “ABC Scrum Master Workbook”, sample exam paper, pre-course study, exam fees and certification.

Where do I sit the Scrum exams?


You take your paper-based Scrum Master exam in the class during the course. Please note some providers send you home to sit the exam on a computer as they say it provides you with more flexibility however it is just to save the provider money. 

Are there any prerequisites for Scrum Master?


There are no prerequisites for our ABC Scrum Master training course. The Scrum Master course is for anyone involved in product delivery using the Scrum framework. Particularly beneficial for those accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, managers, and Scrum team members.

Are your Scrum courses accredited?


Yes. All of NILC's Scrum Master courses are accredited by APMG and the Agile Business Consortium (ABC). APMG-Agile Business Consortium Scrum Master courses are purposefully less IT-centric with exercises and discussions focusing on non-IT scenarios.

What happens if I fail the Scrum Master exam?


If you fail to pass the Scrum Master exam we will offer you support to give you the best opportunity to pass at the next attempt. The Scrum Master exam can be sat on its own without having to retake the whole course (as long as you originally took the course with us).

Do the Scrum Master qualifications expire?


No. Scrum Master qualifications never expire.
