Virtual Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO)

Our two-day Certified Scrum Product Owner training course provides a comprehensive and in-depth training in Scrum theory and practice, taught by a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer.

Our virtual classes are designed to be highly interactive and engaging, consisting not only of lecture but also interactive online collaborative exercises, videos, small-group breakout discussions, interactive quizzes, mini-case-studies and group discussion. And because we limit our live virtual classes to about half the size of our in-person classes, we can answer even more of your questions and real-life situations.

The course format is divided equally between lecture, discussion, and exercises, with frequent opportunities to ask questions.
