Overview

Firebrand's accelerated course is designed to prepare you for Scrum.org's Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) certification exam.

At the end of Firebrand's 2-day course, you will sit Scrum.org's Professional Scrum Master I exam.

By attaining the Professional Scrum Master certification, you'll demonstrate your ability to lead or support the software development process in your organisation.

You'll learn the Scrum basics, and how to use Scrum to optimise productivity and efficiency. Firebrand's course is very hands-on and you'll experience all the aspects of the Scrum framework. The Professional Scrum Master certification is the first major update to the programme since it was first created in 2002.

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

FAQs

What is Scrum?

Scrum is an Agile framework developed to facilitate the completion of complex projects. It was originally created specifically for software development projects, but has since been applied to a wide range of workloads.

A brief breakdown of the Scrum framework:

  • A product leader creates a prioritised list known as the product backlog.
  • The product team select a chunk from the product backlog and decide how to implement that piece in a certain amount of working time, known as a sprint (usually two to four weeks).
  • During this sprint, the team have a daily Scrum to assess their progress. This is lead by the Scrum master who aims to keep them on track.
  • Once the sprint is complete, there should be a shippable product.
  • Before the next sprint commences, there is a sprint review and retrospective look back.

What is a Scrum Master?

Think of the scrum master as a coach for a product development team. The scrum master is responsible for ensuring the team follows the principles and practices of scrum. They are often thought of as the process owner in the team, ensuring the team remain on track whilst also maintaining the balance with the project's key stakeholders.

What are the main responsibilities of a Scrum Master?

  • Ensure the team are in agreement for what can be achieved during a sprint.
  • Ensure the team reach a consensus on activities in the daily scrum.
  • Help the team stay focused while following rules agreed in the daily scrum.
  • Work to remove obstacles that are preventing the team progressing.
  • Protect the team from being distracted
