Applying Professional Scrum™ (APS)
Applying Professional Scrum – Training Workshop for all Scrum team members and practitioners
The Scrum.org Applying Professional Scrum Training Workshop (APS) is a hands-on course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way.
The workshop combines instruction and team-based exercises. During the exercises, students work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints to learn Scrum while using Scrum. They experience first-hand how the Scrum framework improves their ability to deliver value compared to traditional methods. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).
This course was previously known as Professional Scrum Foundations.
During the class, students experience Professional Scrum. They experience new, agile ways of working that enable teams to deliver more value, satisfy stakeholders and work better together. Students work together as a team in a series of Sprints to build a product, facing the same problems they face outside of class and learn how to use Scrum to address them. The events, roles, artifacts and principles of Scrum are leveraged during the exercises. By emphasizing the practical application of Scrum, the course also exposes common missteps and misunderstandings allowing students to develop an awareness of the associated symptoms and how to correct them. Students not only learn Scrum; they learn how to use Scrum well.
All are welcome to attend the course, regardless of experience. However, the following prerequisites are highly recommended for those who intend to take the SAFe® 5 Agilist (SA) certification exam:
The Applying Professional Scrum course is the perfect introduction, reboot or refresher to Scrum. This course is for teams or anyone wanting to experience the Scrum way of working. APS provides the knowledge needed for anyone interested in taking role-focused training. We also suggest that you read through the APS Focus Areas.
The course content is written and updated by Scrum.org, led by Ken Schweber, one of the inventors of Scrum.
The PSM (Professional Scrum Master) certification is recognized globally as evidence of the highest level of knowledge in Scrum.
Certification for life – no annual renewal fee is required.
