The PSPO II (Professional Scrum Product Owner Level II) and A-CSPO (Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner) are both advanced certifications for Scrum Product Owners. While both aim to deepen the knowledge and skills of a Product Owner, there are notable differences between them. Here's a direct comparison of the two certifications:

1. Organization

The PSPO II certification is offered by, whereas the A-CSPO certification is issued by the Scrum Alliance. Both organizations are highly respected in the agile community.

2. Prerequisites

PSPO II: It is recommended to have the PSPO I certification beforehand, though it's not strictly required.

A-CSPO: The Scrum Alliance requires holders to have the CSPO certification and a certain amount of practical experience as a Product Owner before qualifying for the A-CSPO.

3. Course Structure and Content

PSPO II: The training focuses on advanced Product Owner topics but also includes extensive content on value maximization, stakeholder management, and advanced techniques for Product Backlog management.

A-CSPO: This course deepens existing knowledge and builds on it by providing advanced skills and techniques for stakeholder interaction, Product Backlog management, and product strategy development.

4. Examination and Certification

PSPO II: To obtain the certification, one must pass an examination. There's no mandatory training, although it is recommended.

A-CSPO: The Scrum Alliance places a stronger emphasis on education and hands-on experience. A formal examination isn't always required, but a work requirement or proof of acquired skills and knowledge might be necessary.

5. Validity/Renewal

PSPO II: Once passed, the certification remains valid indefinitely.

A-CSPO: This certification needs to be renewed every two years, coupled with a requirement to accumulate SEUs (Scrum Education Units). These SEUs can be earned through active engagement in the Agile community, reading professional books, attending conferences, or even through additional trainings, such as an Agile Academy online course.

While both certifications are valuable and convey a deeper understanding of the Product Owner's role, the choice should be made based on individual goals, preferred organization ( vs. Scrum Alliance), and specific requirements.

No, there is no practice exam, but instead, there is a multiple-choice exam from for the PSPO II (Professional Scrum Product Owner Level II) certification. This PSPO 2 exam aims to assess candidates' advanced knowledge and understanding of the Scrum Product Owner's role.

3. Duration

The exam is timed at one hour (60 minutes), during which you need to answer all the questions. Once you start, it's not possible to pause the test. Hence, we recommend ensuring that you'll be able to answer questions attentively and without interruptions before beginning.

4. Passing Score

From a pool of questions, you'll be presented with 40 to answer. To pass, you must correctly answer at least 85% of the questions. For questions with multiple correct answers, partial points can be credited.

5. Preparation

Although the PSPO II test is considered more challenging than the PSPO I exam, there's no need for concern. With your active participation in the training, you'll be well-prepared and likely to excel in the test.
