The mission of Agile University is to instill Agile principles, share knowledge of Agile practices and advance adoption of Agile approaches. Through this collaborative effort, we manifest the power of people working together to perfect the art of software development.
Teams who receive training and guidance from a coach are much more likely to succeed than those who don't. Training offers teams an opportunity to gain shared understanding around language, meaning and practices that is difficult to achieve when individual team members just read books or browse websites. If your team is struggling with estimating, completing committed work in an iteration, building consistent quality products, good meeting practices, role transitions, engineering practices, delivering value, or any other Agile practice, training can help!
Yes. However, students must claim their own PDUs. Below are the instructions to apply for credits.
Generally, the rule is very simple. Each hour spent in the course counts for 1 PDU.
Scrum Alliance, the certifying organization for ScrumMasters, Scrum Product Owners and Certified Scrum Practitioners has announced new plans for student certification. Beginning October 1, 2009 a multiple choice, certification exam will be administered to each student completing a Certified ScrumMaster or a Certified Scrum Product Owner Training.
On course completion, participants are registered as Certified ScrumMasters (CSMs), which includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where valuable ScrumMaster-material and information is available exclusively to CSMs. You will be contacted by Scrum Alliance approximately two weeks following your course with further details on becoming certified.
Effective April 1, 2009 all CSM, CSPO and CSP certifications will be valid for a period of two years. This means that everyone who was awarded a CSM, CSPO or CSP certification on or before April 1, 2009 must recertify by April 1, 2011 to maintain their certified status. Individuals seeking recertification will be required to demonstrate that their knowledge and skills in the domain of ScrumMaster, Product Owner, or Scrum Practitioner remain current and they will be required to pay a recertification fee. Specific details of the recertification requirements will be finalized during the Scrum Gathering in Orlando in March and will be announced shortly thereafter.
For all classes through Agile University payment by credit card is preferred and will be accepted through our registration system or through PayPal and Google Checkout where available.
