This program is traditionally a face-to-face classroom training program, but the September 2021 section uses a hybrid format where participants can join in the classroom at UNH Portsmouth or online via Zoom. Upon enrolling in the workshop, participants will be contacted by PD&T staff with additional details how to attend using either format.
This two-day hands-on class teaches students the Agile Project Management Methodology as well as the underlying Scrum process including sprint planning, daily stand-up meetings, and all the diverse skills required of a Scrum Master. Class work will revolve around an product development project for hands-on experience and all scrum planning steps are employed by the teams culminating in a final class project. Participants will leave this class energized and able to help their organizations move their Agile-Scrum initiatives forward.
The Agile-Scrum Master Certificate is geared towards individuals looking to become certified Scrum Masters and/or participate in the role of effective team members. However, content is applicable to anyone within an organization implementing Agile methods. Upon completion, participants will be prepared to be an effective Scrum Master, stakeholder or team member for any Scrum team or Scrum organization.
