Course Description

This Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) course is an intensive deep dive into the world’s most popular Agile method: Scrum.

Live Virtual Training

Virtual TrainingThere’s no need to worry about missing out compared with in-person training. This course is not a series of pre-recorded videos that you passively watch. This CSM is a live interactive virtual experience with the trainer coming to you live from Sydney, Australia. It covers all the same learning objectives as our in-person CSMs – just using a different interaction medium. As a bonus, you will come away with a lot of practical techniques for remote working!

You can expect a highly interactive virtual learning experience with continuous live video amongst all participants. The course is designed to exploit the potential of state-of-the-art online collaboration tools as well as leveraging research-based adult eLearning approaches to maximise learner interaction and retention. All this from the comfort of your own home / office / home office!

Instead of sitting and staring at a screen for long 8 hour days, this course is scheduled in 4-hour sessions across 4 consecutive business days. The session timings in Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) are as follows.

  • Session 1: Monday 29th March 9am – 1pm (AEDT)
