Certified Agile Practitioner

Equivalent to Scrum Master Certification

The Certified Agile Practitioner training course will teach you how to be an Agile project manager – known in the Scrum agile process as “Scrum Master” – including the practices and thinking style required to increase the agility of a development team, project, and organization.

As a Scrum Master – you will facilitate, coach, and lead your team. The Scrum Master is responsible for the proper execution of Scrum and facilitating the necessary change within the engineering and overall organization. We will combine exercises, case studies, and examples to thoroughly teach you how to be a Scrum Master.

This course requires a prior understanding of Scrum basics; experience in software development projects is helpful.
