The difference between live training and online course?

The live trainings are conducted by a certified trainer remotely or as an on-site seminar and are certified by the Scrum Alliance (Scrum Master, Scrum Developer, Product Owner, Agile Leadership, Scrum Foundations), Kanban University (all Kanban Trainings) or other well-known and internationally recognized companies. All trainings are conducted live on a specific date.

What are Live Trainings?

As live trainings we refer to all events that are held on-site or remotely as live training. Only live events with a certified trainer are usually certified by the internationally recognized bodies.

An agile live training is therefore conducted by one of our trainers in real time and on-site or as a live-online training. The trainings usually last between one day and three days.

What are online courses at Agile Academy?

Online courses are recorded e-learning courses from Agile Academy trainers. Thus, the modules of these courses can be started and completed at any time. All online courses include a certificate from the Business Agility Academy.

Can I combine a live training with an online course?

Yes. Some trainers offer their live trainings such as the Certified Scrum Master in combination with the matching online course. This can be seen in the overview table at the respective trainings. The number of online courses will be steadily increased and will be available in German and English. If a German course is not yet available, you will first receive the English online course for your German live training.

Can I book live training as an in-house event?

This is also possible. If you want to book a live training for a group as an in-house event, you can do so either by using our form or by contacting Philip. Benefit from our worldwide trainer network and get a consistent training for all employees with the same quality standards in all countries.
