This two-day course prepares individuals or teams for effectively using Scrum immediately. The Scrum framework, mechanics, and roles within Scrum are emphasised with a focus on practical application.
Professional Scrum Foundations (PSF) Training Course is the perfect introduction to Scrum for anyone new to the framework. Whether teams need a flawless Scrum launch or to reboot a struggling Scrum implementation, this class lays the foundation for an effective Scrum team. This course also provides the foundation of knowledge needed for role-focused training for Product Owners, Scrum Masters and Developers.
The PSF course is appropriate for anyone working on or with a Scrum Team. The course is especially well suited to teams and individuals investigating Scrum, those who are currently struggling with Scrum, or those beginning to utilise Scrum in their development environment.
This course is designed to leave delegates more confident in five key areas:
- The fundamentals of Scrum theory and principles.
- The Scrum framework.
- Cross functional self-organising teams.
- Generating and refining a product backlog.
- Putting Scrum into action.
In addition, attending the Professional Scrum Foundations training course entitles delegates to two free attempts at the PSM I assessment, a globally-recognised certification (the second free attempt is only available if the first attempt is made within two weeks).

Keeping Scrum Healthy

This discussion helps students plan and prepare to be effective with Scrum immediately, marking the PSF as the true catalyst for change and increasing agility within the organisation.
Unlike other Scrum certifications that require only class attendance, Scrum.org certification requires a minimum score on a rigorous assessment.
The Professional Scrum Foundations course has one associated assessment: PSM I. By completing the Professional Scrum Foundations course students will receive a password to take the PSM I assessment one-time following the course.
By passing this assessment students will receive the industry-recognised “PSM I” certification and their name will be posted on the Scrum.org website.
