The Scrum Alliance—in true Agile fashion—has adapted to the needs of today’s marketplace and is now allowing students who wish to become Advanced Certified ScrumMasters to participate in a live online learning environment. In response, LeadingAgile now offers this advanced class as an interactive and engaging online experience for advanced ScrumMasters.

We rebuilt our entire A-CSM course from the ground up. Keeping in mind the challenge of sitting at a computer for 8 hours straight, we’ve revised the class to include a 10-minute break every hour. This way we can all get up and stretch our legs, get refreshments, or send off that pesky email. In addition to the new format, we’ve added some brand-new interactive exercises that were designated specifically for remote learning and have created an exercise for each of the major topics covered in class.

We’ve put a ton of thought into how we can make these courses as valuable as possible and have come up with some innovative solutions that we think will make your experience just as valuable as if you had taken it in-person. Despite all the changes, what hasn’t changed is the fact that our A-CSM course still covers all the material you’ll need and that’s required to receive your certification. By the end of the class, you’ll be fully prepared to help your organization succeed with Scrum when you get back to work.

Welcome to the next phase of your Agile & Scrum Training.
