Course Overview

The Scrum Master Course aims to introduce learners to the Scrum project management methodology. The modules take the learner through all of the key areas of Scrum, as well as some of the other Agile concepts that underpin Scrum to be able to understand and implement scrum as a working methodology within their organization. The aim of the course is to enable the learner to be able to pass a Level 1 Scrum Master certification.  

The course starts with an introduction to Scrum and Agile, and aims to get the learner to understand the principles and values of the methodology.  

The second module covers the Scrum Roles that comprise a scrum team. 

The third looks at the artefacts that enable a scrum team, and how each of the scrum team members interact with them. 

The fourth looks at the 5 Scrum Events that occur. Their purpose is examined, as well as how they should be used by the Scrum Team. 

The final Module examines some other Scrum and Agile concepts, including some additional methodologies and techniques that can be implemented. Whilst not necessary, learners may find them useful.  

The course ends with next steps, and provides directions on how the learner can get certified as a Scrum Master.
