Course Information

Course Overview

This 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.

This accredited Scrum Master training course benefits from our Exam Pass Guarantee*.

All virtual courses are fully interactive, and learners can communicate with their trainer and peers at any time.

Many of our virtual courses are also recorded, so you can recap over the content you learnt as many time as you wish.

Classroom

Our classroom courses allow you to learn and interact face-to-face with our expert instructors in a comfortable and modern training environment. All of our classroom based courses take place at NILC centers, or high quality training facilities, and include all required IT and physical equipment.

We also limit our class sizes to help promote better discussions and to ensure your learning experience is comfortable as possible.

Onsite

Save time and hassle by arranging for one of our expert instructors to come to you. Our onsite courses allow you to learn in a location of your choosing, and you can train as many or as few people as you want – from a single person or team to whole departments. We can also fully customize the course content to the specific requirements of your business or project.

We offer onsite courses throughout the UK and it can be a great team building opportunity for colleagues to come together, bond and discuss.
