Scrum and Agile Basics Theory Certification Tips


The are no specific requirements that one has to fulfill in order to sign up for the course. It is designed with beginning and intermediate Scrum Team members in mind but will also be a perfect fit for those who want to improve their understanding of Scrum and Agile and are not necessarily engaged in Scrum projects on a daily basis. The course can also serve as an introduction to agile and project management in general because it covers all basic concepts and places Scrum in a broader context.


A complete Scrum course divided into multiple modules. Each module consists of multiple sections ending with a quiz that helps solidify the knowledge.The course covers all core Scrum framework elements such as:Scrum Events, Scrum Roles,Scrum Artifacts, but also comes with additional modules devoted to Scrum values (a new segment added to Scrum Guide in 2016), differences between the agile and waterfall approaches (to help the student get the broader perspective) and the Scrum Master certification.All of those modules, combined with a one on one support, Q&A section and additional materials provided by the course authors form a complete package. This Scrum package can serve as a knowledge base for those who are already working with Scrum or agile, those who have only heard about it and want to fully understand its principles and to those who are preparing for the Scrum Master certification.The course was created by two agile enthusiasts who work with Scrum teams and experience Scrum every day. Jarek and Paweł are Scrum Masters who started their adventure with IT projects in a waterfall environment, then worked with multiple teams on introducing the agile change and are currently working as Scrum Masters. Their professional experience allowed them to obtain the „full image” of the agile methodology (and the Scrum framework in particular) and how it relates to the waterfall approach.IMPORTANT NOTICE:This course is not an official preparation for the Professional Scrum Master™ I (PSM I) certification by Scrum(.)org and it is not connected with this organization. We also highly recommend the official Scrum trainings offered by this them.
