Course description

Professional Scrum Master (PSM)

Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a course that covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I).

Students will see why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness. The course includes advanced thinking for servant-leadership and behavioral shifts.

Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace.

The PSM course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.


All experience levels are welcome. No previous Scrum training or experience is required, though it is recommended that participants read the Scrum Guide before the course.

Certification and Assessment

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Master course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment. PSM class participants who attempt the PSM I assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score at least 85% will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.

I never write reviews but David’s professionalism, teaching methods and approachability was absolutely fantastic. He got myself and my colleagues engaged in the material from the bat and he instilled confidence in us moving forward onto the assessment. Would love to work with David again!
Thanks David! 🙂

The instructor was very good, and the class had a good mix of practical exercises and theory in order to cover the different aspects of scrum and its role within a team/org/companies

– Nathan Speirs, Software Engineer

Incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and patient. Covers all necessary information and more thoroughly with attention to detail while keeping the tuition fun and interesting. Looking to go back and complete more courses with them. We had David as our trainer.

– Tom Fell, Technical Project Manager

Awesome class. It helped me answer all the uncertain questions I had regarding scrum, agile, and roles of a scrum master. Thanks Red Tangerine/David Spinks!

– Clara Park, Innovation Manager/Scrum Master

Excellent course, very interactive. David is very knowledgeable and the class was designed to engage us and have us learn by doing, rather than only focusing on the theory.  Highly reccommended!
