About the Course

Relieve pain and make heroes of your Scrum Team and Product Owner, and learn how to help your organization.

The Professional Scrum Master - Advanced course with PSM II certification is a Scrum Master class designed by Scrum Masters for Scrum Masters to support them in their professional development. This course was previously called Professional Scrum Master II. After the class, students are eligible for the PSM II assessment certification. If you pass the assessment, you will gain the industry-recognized PSM II certification. This certification will NEVER expire, and it makes you part of an elite community of PSM II badge holders worldwide.

This course will help you understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Scrum Team, Product Owner, and organization. You will also have an opportunity to experience new tools and techniques helpful in facilitation, coaching, and teaching as well as share your experience with peers.

Three-day shorter-day class schedule

What is the difference between a two-day class (whether in-person or virtual) and a three-day virtual class?

We cover ALL the same materials, and the class is consistent with the high-quality standards set by Scrum.org. Because the class is delivered virtually, many students appreciate the shorter days. At the end of the three days you receive:

  • The same high-quality content;
  • A manageable schedule that creates higher engagement and learning for you;
  • An opportunity to accommodate other commitments you might have at home or at work;

Zoom and Mural will be used to facilitate the activities. You'll receive a wealth of materials and dozens of techniques you can take back and use with your Scrum Teams immediately to be an effective Scrum Master.

Who Should Attend

The advanced Scrum Master course is ideally beneficial for those with one year of active experience or more in the role.

While it is recommended, you do not have to have a PSM I certification or have attended a PSM I class beforehand. Your hands-on experience as a Scrum Master and strong knowledge of Scrum are a must to get the most out of this course.

What’s included with the class:​

  • Up to 2 free PSM II exam attempts - a savings of $250 per attempt (if you take the PSM II assessment and don't score at least 85% on your first attempt at the PSM II assessment within 14 days after the course, you will be provided with a second free attempt);
  • All materials, exercises, and posters used in the course that you can use with your Scrum Teams;
  • 40% discount on the PSM III exam after passing the PSM II assessment;
  • 14 PDU credits for course attendance with Project Management Institute;
  • 16 SEU credits (C category) for course attendance with Scrum Alliance.

Tell me more; what should I expect?

Over the four sessions, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master such as how the principles and values of Scrum help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make and how the Scrum Master can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating an environment for agility to thrive. The Scrum Master role is complex and often, a Scrum Master must be able to apply different stances in order to be effective, such as:

  • The Scrum Master as a Teacher
  • The Scrum Master as a Coach & Mentor
  • The Scrum Master as a Facilitator
  • The Scrum Master as a Change Agent

As a Scrum Master, being able to identify, and effectively apply, which stance would benefit your team the most depending on the situation or circumstance could prove to be the key to the success of your team.

As a Scrum Master, part of your role is to help management and other stakeholders across your organization understand the benefits of Scrum and Agile. Therefore, it is imperative that you have the information and background that is needed to gain credibility in order to be an effective change agent. Throughout the class, your PST will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources, and more.

A computer with a webcam and audio is required for this online course.
