This in-depth, advanced training program is designed to help people with experience on Agile teams to become fully-capable independent Agile coaches. Worried about the time commitment?

Spots are extremely limited for this course. Reserve your spot now! (Contributes all the training hours required for the Certified Scrum Professional designation. As well, if you do not already have the CSM and CSPO designations, you will receive free enrolment in either or both of those courses once your registration has been confirmed.)
