How to become a Scrum master?
Here’s an overview of how to become a scrum master in 4 simple steps:
1. Attend Our 2-Day Exam Preparation Course
Our 2-Day Scrum Master Course has been designed to help learners enhance their skills, improve teamwork and increase productivity in the area of Agile/Scrum Project Management. We will investigate Vision Creation, the use of the Product Backlog, Backlog Formatting Techniques, Story Point Estimation and how to use this to formulate a release plan.
2. Study Period and PSM™ Application
We advise at least 6 weeks of study and exam practice following your training. During the course, we will give you course materials and recommended reading that will help you to prepare for the Exam.
You won’t face anything extraordinary during your examination – it typically focuses on key Scrum principles and practices (project management, sprints, release planning, team building, progress reporting, scalability, etc.)
You may also read additional Scrum materials and articles or watch useful videos – they will help you ensure you’re fully prepared to pass the exam.
