Applying Professional Scrum Training with Certification

Solidify Your Knowledge Through Practice

The Applying Professional Scrum (APS) course is a 2-day course that teaches Scrum by experiencing what it’s like to build software using the Scrum framework. Working in a series of Sprints, students break into Scrum Teams fulfilling all of the roles on a team to build a software application, simulating real-life problems.

APS | 2 Days | Beginner | Teams, Stakeholders, Developers

Course Overview

Applying Professional Scrum (APS) is a hands-on course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way. The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises. During the exercises, students work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints to learn Scrum while using Scrum. They experience first-hand how the Scrum framework improves their ability to deliver value compared to traditional methods. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).  This course was previously known as Professional Scrum Foundations.

We believe that every organisation deserves usable software on a regular cadence that delivers the highest possible value. Organisations are complex systems. They evolve over time and the current ways of working are a result of this evolution. We help an entire organization focus on value delivery and agree to new norms. 

By reducing bureaucracy and command and control management, we believe that everyone will take responsibility for achieving the organisation’s goals. Our tailored blend of training, coaching and mentoring, gives people the opportunity to learn and develop, making the organisation, and its clients, successful.
