This two-day course addresses the principles and theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it.

This qualification is particularly beneficial for those accountable for getting the most out of Scrum, including Scrum Masters, managers and Scrum team members. It is primarily aimed at individuals wishing to build their competence as a Scrum Master either in preparation for taking on that role or as somebody already fulfilling the role who wants to ensure that they are serving their team and organisation in the right way. 

Individuals involved in using the Scrum framework, or managing those that do will also benefit from gaining an understanding of Scrum through gaining this qualification.
