Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) Training Course
Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) course is a 2-day advanced Scrum Master class designed to support Scrum Masters in their professional development. The PSM II course is intended for Scrum Masters with at least one year of experience who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities as a Scrum Master. This course is one step in that journey. After the class, students are eligible for the PSM II assessment certification. If you pass the assessment, you will gain the industry recognized PSM II certification. This certification will NEVER expire, and it makes you part of an elite community of less than 1,800 PSM II badge holders worldwide.
Unlike the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course, which focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master, PSM II is an advanced course helping students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader while diving deep into how they serve the Development Team, Product Owner and organization. The course then teaches students about related practices and skills to enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters.

Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master such as how the principles and values of Scrum help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make and how the Scrum Master can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating an environment for agility to thrive. The Scrum Master role is complex and often, a Scrum Master must be able to apply different stances in order to be effective, such as:
- The Scrum Master as a Teacher
- The Scrum Master as a Coach & Mentor
- The Scrum Master as a Facilitator
- The Scrum Master as a Change Agent
As a Scrum Master, being able to identify, and effectively apply, which stance would benefit your team the most depending on the situation or circumstance could prove to be the key to the success of your team.
As a Scrum Master, part of your role is to help management and other stakeholders across your organization understand the benefits of Scrum and Agile. Therefore, it is imperative that you have the information and background that is needed to gain credibility in order to be an effective change agent. Throughout the class, your PST will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources and more.
There will also be time in class for the Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) to provide coaching on challenges that you and your classmates may be experiencing today or may in the future.

At the end of this course, you will be able to identify and effectively apply which stance would benefit your team the most considering the situation at hand.

The industry-recognized PSM II certifications require a minimum passing score of 85% on these rigorous assessments.
Students now receive a 2nd free attempt at the assessment if an 85% or lower is scored and taken within 14 days from when their initial password email is sent. The 2nd password does not expire.
If you pass the PSM II assessment you will receive the industry-recognized “PSM II” certification, along with a PSM II logo that you can use to identify your achievement. In addition, your name will be listed on Scrum.org.
Unlike other Scrum certifications that require only class attendance, Scrum.org certification requires a minimum score (85%) on an online assessment. This gives Scrum.org certification teeth and ensures that it has true value in the marketplace.
