Canada. We love it. We love it so much that we have decided to completely change our strategy for helping organizations here in our home country.
We have noticed that Certified Scrum Trainers from other parts of the world are starting to offer ScrumMaster training here in Canada. But there is a problem. They aren’t local. They won’t be able to stick close by you as you learn about Scrum, learn about hyper productive teams, and learn to transform your organization.
We are local. Our home base is in the Toronto area and we have experienced coaches and consultants in other areas of the country as well. We are here to accompany you on your journey with Scrum and agile methods. How?
By changing the price on our Certified ScrumMaster seminars. The value in our seminars is huge already: three days (vs. the normal two), the focus on implementing Scrum and obstacles to overcome with Scrum, a focus on leadership in Scrum, and a great deal of experience with both successful and not-so-successful attempts to do Scrum.
What is the new price? For the first 100 people to sign up for one of our scheduled courses, the price is $995 – Canadian! That’s a 50% discount off of our regular price. Pretty good, eh?
We are investing in your success. Our new strategy: make the premier Certified ScrumMaster training course more accessible locally! Come to our seminar. Connect with our trainers and coaches. And rest assured that we will be around to help you out when you need it.

Isráfíl Consulting is finally prepared for the first series of its Agile Software Engineering Practices training courses. This series is offered in partnership with Berteig Consulting who are graciously hosting the registration process. Their team has also helped greatly in shaping the presentation style and structure of the course. The initial run will be in Ottawa, Toronto (Markham), and Kitchener/Waterloo.
Topics covered will include Test Driven Development (TDD), testability, supportive infrastructure such as build and continuous integration, team metrics, incremental design and evolutionary architecture, dependency injection, and so much more. (This course won’t present the planning side of XP, but covers many other aspects common to XP projects) It makes a great complement for training in Agile Processes such as XP, Scrum, or OpenAgile. The overview slide presentation is available for free download from the Isráfíl web site.
The courses are scheduled for:
The course is $1250 CAD per student, and participants receive a transferrable discount of $100 CAD for other training with Berteig Consulting as a part of our ongoing partnership. I initially prototyped this course in Ottawa this December, and am very excited to see this through in several locales. Class size is limited to 15, so we can keep the instruction style more involved. The above schedules are linked to Berteig Consulting’s course system and have registration links at the bottom of the description. Locations are TBD, but will be updated at the above links as soon as they’re finalized.
A further series is planned for several US cities in March, and we’ll be sure to announce them as well.
