The Certified Scrum Master introduces participants to foundational Agile and Scrum coaching skills and team development concepts for starting and growing teams while focusing on teams and organisations as human systems.

Hi, I'm Jon Spruce and I'll be your trainer.

I’m a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), and what truly sets me apart is my distinctive approach to training delivery.  At its core are three pillars: connection, contextualisation, and continuous improvement, all delivered with humour and grounded in real-world pragmatism.

I pride myself on tailoring my training to meet participants where they are in their Agile journey.

By interweaving personal stories from my diverse industry experiences, I offer relatable insights that allow students to see Agile and Scrum principles in action, bolstering their confidence in real-world applications.

Rather than confining sessions to rigid slides or lectures, I emphasise dynamic exploration, resonating with participants’ unique challenges and aspirations.

As you embark on your Agile journey, know that my training is crafted to resonate, empower, and inspire.

What is a Scrum Master?

A Scrum Master is a Scrum team member who fosters an effective and productive working environment and guides others to understand Scrum’s values, principles, and practices. Scrum masters are people-oriented, have high emotional intelligence, and enjoy helping team members grow.

Whether you want to serve as a Scrum Master, are adopting Scrum, or need the tools to be more agile, our Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®) course is the right place to start. You’ll gain a solid understanding of scrum and learn practical ways to apply it to your team and organisation.

  • Establish mutual trust within your organisation.

  • The Principles and Values behind the Agile Manifesto
  • The Scrum Framework
    Scrum Accountabilities, Events and Artefacts
  • How Scrum works in different domains

Do I need a camera?

We recommend that each student have a camera available throughout every session to provide the best interactive experience.

Is online training an excellent way to learn?

To overcome the challenges currently associated with attending in-person training, we have adapted the delivery of this course into a live online training format with an added focus on how to work using agile with remote team members. Utilising live video and online collaboration tools, we can replicate the interactive nature of our face-to-face training within a virtual environment. Individuals can undertake this training from their home or any other remote location.

How should you prepare for this course?

Pre-work is provided ahead of the course via email and the student workbook.

What about certification?

Attendance of the course and engagement with each of the learning objectives will enable you to be pout forward for the Certified Scrum Master exam.

 

What software do I need?

As this is an online course, you will need a computer with a camera and a headset. You will also need to install the Zoom client. We highly recommend you use a personal laptop to comply with company security policies and ensure you can access everything you need during the course.

Is there an exam?

Although there is no official ICAgile exam, ICAgile allows their course accreditors to determine appropriate means for retention of the learning outcomes. Depending on your provider, there may be some type of assessment in order to earn certification. For example, we assess participation, activity and understanding conveyed via exercises and discussion, withholding certificates when appropriate.
