ALC’s Professional Scrum Master course is based on the syllabus as set down by Scrum.org, the international curator of the Scrum agile process.
The course covers Scrum fundamentals and key principles including the framework, mechanics, and roles of Scrum. The course also teaches how to use Scrum, how to optimise value, productivity and the total cost of ownership of software products.
Participants learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and are challenged to think on their feet to better understand what to do when they return to their workplaces.
Scrum.org certification is the premium certification and requires a minimum score on a rigorous assessment. The Professional Scrum Master course has two associated assessments with two levels of certification: PSM I and PSM II.
If you complete the Professional Scrum Master course you will receive a password to take the PSM I online assessment one time within a 14-day period following the course. If you score 85% or better you will receive the industry-recognized “PSM I” certification and your name will be posted on the Professional Scrum Master I certification list.
The cost of the first attempt is included in the price of the PSM class. Subsequent attempts have to be separately purchased. Participants who pass PSM I are also eligible for the PSM II certification test at a discounted price.

This course is designed for:
What is Scrum and how has it evolved?
Why does Scrum work and what are its core principles? How are the Scrum principles different from those of more traditional software development approaches, and what is the impact?
How Scrum theory is implemented using time-boxes, roles, rules, and artefacts. How can these be used most effectively and how can they fall apart?
Scrum is different: what does this mean to my project and my organisation? How do I best adopt Scrum given the change that is expected?
A system isn’t just developed, it is also sustained, maintained and enhanced. How is the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of our systems or products measured and optimised?
Scrum Teams are self-organising and cross-functional; this is different from traditional development groups. How do we start with Scrum teams and how do we ensure their success?
Plan a project and estimate its cost and completion date.
Scrum is empirical. How can predictions be made, risk be controlled, and progress be tracked using Scrum. Discussion starts with “Done and Undone” and continues with Quality Assurance in Scrum.
Scrum works great with one team. It also works better than anything else for projects or product releases that involve hundreds or thousands of globally dispersed team members. How is scaling best accomplished using Scrum?
