Scrum Master & Agile Coach Online Course

Sohrab Salimi
Sohrab Salimi
Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST) with 10+ years of trainer experience
  • Thoroughly understand the role of the Scrum Master and Agile Coach
  • Learn Agile and Scrum from scratch
  • Create a toolbox for systematically leading agile teams to high-performance
  • Practical real-world examples and case studies
  • Prepare for the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM 1) certification from Scrum.org

Word class teams improve & learn with our online courses:

The online course helps me incredibly, because almost all of the projects I manage for our customers run with Scrum and I have a much better understanding of the team dynamics, the processes and the rules of the game and therefore also understand much better why some things don't run smoothly, because some Scrum steps are simply left out - just as Sohrab tells it in the course.

Since I didn't get any time for the course from my company, I did it over the Christmas break when my kid was busy painting and crafting in the morning. The course was just unbelievably good for that - because it was easy to take in small bites. I even passed the PSM 1 on srcum.org last week and the course prepared me ideally for that.

Frequently Asked Questions

Being a great Scrum Master or Agile Coach is not easy. It’s not all about Scrum there is so much more. And even if it was all about Scrum – yes the Scrum Guide is not even 20 pages – but really mastering the framework is difficult.

This course is full of practical models that help you think differently about many aspects of work. We will share a ton of visuals with you to make learning stick. And, we will tell many stories from the work we have done with various clients and teams.

The course also takes a few steps back and explains what Agile means, when it is to be applied, and what its key benefits are. In addition to Scrum, we also cover Kanban on a foundational level as we believe that every Scrum Master and Agile Coach needs to understand it.

By completing the course, you build the knowledge to get started with the work of a Scrum Master and Agile Coach. You will know what you need to do and how at every step of the way. Mastering the work itself obviously requires a ton of practice.

This course is designed for people embarking on the journey to become great Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches. It covers Scrum in detail i.e. the framework itself with all of the Roles (Accountabilities), Events, and Artifacts.

The course is perfect for beginners as well as for Scrum Masters who have already worked actively in this role. Because our Scrum Master & Agile Leader online course is so full of content and exercises that you can certainly still benefit from it even as an experienced Scrum Master!

In addition to the approximately 24 hours of video material in the course, take advantage of our 150+ page workbook designed specifically for this course to make your learning journey sustainable.

We recommend that you always reserve enough time to work through all of the assignments and exercises.

Included in the course package is access to our Agile Academy Slack Community. Use the community to share and discuss your questions with other learners around the world. Here you will also find our Agile Academy team, who will be happy to assist you as a contact person.

If live interaction while learning is especially important to you, you can also optionally add 9 hours of live sessions with your trainer Sohrab Salimi when you purchase the online course. These sessions take place on a weekly basis and offer not only the opportunity to ask questions directly live, but also to work together on content and exercises!

After successful completion of the online course, you will receive a Business Agility Academy Award.

In addition, our Scrum Master & Agile Coach Online Course is an excellent preparation for the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM 1) assessment by Scrum.org. The fee for the assessment is not included in the prices listed here and must be paid directly to Scrum.org.

If you go through this course as part of an Agile Academy Plus Membership, you will also have the opportunity to receive the Certified ScrumMaster® Certification by Scrum Alliance.

If you have questions about the certification of the Agile Academy online courses, just contact us. We will be happy to advise you on whether and which certification is most relevant for you.
