Want to learn something useful?
It’s no secret that many professionals are looking to take a CSM course because, well, they have to. Our class won’t just meet requirements. Aaron will share over two decades of hands-on experience, and guide towards understanding why Agile development works, not just how it works.
What does this course cover?
In case you don’t already know, the Scrum Alliance has developed a solid set of learning objectives that every Scrum Trainer’s course must include. You can take a look at the objectives here. The Scrum Alliance has also put together a series of resources worth looking over. Check out the Scrum Foundations videos and you’ll even get SEUs for watching!
That looks pretty dry. Will I fall asleep?
We know full well what it is like to try and sit still in a room full of strangers while an “expert” drones on and on in front of their snazzy deck. That is not happening here. Aaron incorporates active learning in the class. Prepare to move around, participate in discussions and perform activities. Aaron is adept at creating learning opportunities for every type of learner.
