Why Professional Scrum Trainers (PSTs)

 

Each trainer candidate is put through a rigorous process to ensure that they have the right set of capabilities to be a Professional Scrum Trainer. The process includes a combination of interviews, assessments, training, train-the-trainer events and more. It takes more than a solid understanding of Scrum and a deep knowledge of the Scrum Guide to become a PST. Successful candidates are skilled in software development and product management. They are experts in Scrum and have extensive experience applying, leading, teaching and coaching it. They have been servant-leaders at an organizational level. They live Scrum daily.

 

Scrum.org continuously evaluates a trainer’s abilities while the trainers also evaluate and improve themselves through the use of student feedback and student assessments. Many spend a significant amount of their time embedded in software Scrum Teams as coaches, Scrum Masters and other roles to stay in tune with reality. Essentially, PSTs do more than just train; they walk the walk.

Assessment and Certification

 

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master course receive a password to take the PSM I assessment and are entitled to a discount on the PSM II assessment.  The industry-recognized PSM I certification requires a minimum passing score on this rigorous assessment.
