Learning Experience Options

Our primary method of increasing Professional Scrum and the Scrum Masters accountability knowledge is a deliberate developmental experience divided into learning blocks, each with four hours of live virtual classroom training with a qualified trainer-practitioner complemented with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities provided for self-study. Live sessions are delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural, with Mighty Networks provides the self-study portal.

Every participant on every option receives:

  • Two attempts at the industry-recognised Assessments.
  • A 30m learning review, generally delivered between assessment attempts.
  • A 60m one-on-one coaching session

This immersion training is delivered as an 8-week interactive, activity-based course over 4-hour sessions using Microsoft Teams and Mural. Throughout the immersive experience, students learn and then practice Scrum Master practices that they can use once they leave the classroom while also receiving an introduction to Professional Scrum. Between sessions, we provide additional reading, writing, and watching activities to maximise the learning opportunities and complement the classroom experience, and an assignment to be completed by the start of the next session.
