How our remote courses work for you…

 

When designing these courses, our aim was to replicate the physical interactions you’d experience in a classroom environment. In practice, this means you’ll join a virtual classroom with video, audio and screen sharing – with the option of break-out sessions for smaller groups. Teaching will be via a mix of screen-sharing for theory, class and break-out discussions and exercises, followed by class feedback. You’ll also be creating exercise artefacts from within the virtual classroom and the break-out rooms.

The activities have been enhanced to make use of the environment, making for collaboration activities that are often richer than in a classroom setting. Part of the remote course offering is a one-hour, face-to-face session after the course to ensure that all learning outcomes have been achieved.

DOES IT HELP MY FUTURE?

To take this course, experience of working with Scrum is a must. Completion of the course will put you on track to achieve two levels of certification – PSM I and PSM II – industry-recognised certification which can help open greater future career opportunities.

Just completed the PSM course with Jacob Creech and it was excellent. I didn't know what it was going to be like via ZOOM, but Jacob created a lovely vibe and we all bonded and had a great experience while learning lots. I also appreciate all the resources Jacob provided after the course. A wonderful experience!!
