Certified ScrumMaster® Training
A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.

Lifelong Learning:
Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
SIGs are a great way for community members to continue lifelong learning beyond the classroom. Meeting regularly and free to join, SIGs provide new and enriching opportunities to form friendships with other members while exploring a specific topic area. A SIG is formed by a collective of people with a special interest in the same subject who want to participate as active learners. Special Interest Groups are independent and self-directed, with members deciding where and when to meet and how the group will function. See page 30 of our Schedule of Classes for full details!
