SAFe Scrum Master

Scrum Master Training and Certification

​If you’re ready to take on a leadership role in an agile work environment, the Scrum Master training course may be just the right place to start.

Build your skills as a high-performing team member of an Agile Release Train (ART) — and prepare to support the facilitation of team and program events — when you become a SAFe® 5 Scrum Master (SSM).

In this certified Scrum Master training course, you’ll gain an understanding of the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe enterprise. Unlike traditional Scrum Master training that focuses on the fundamentals of team-level Scrum, the SAFe Scrum Master course explores the role of the Scrum Master in the context of the entire enterprise. It prepares you to successfully plan and execute the Program Increment (PI), the primary enabler of alignment throughout all levels of a SAFe organization.

What Will You Learn?

The complex role of Scrum Master encompasses duties such as cultivating a communicative environment, implementing agile values and principles, and encouraging team-wide productivity.

With so many vital tasks, it’s no surprise that you’ll need a comprehensive course to teach you all you’ll need to know. Luckily, LurnAgile is prepared to teach you a variety of skills, such as:

  • Describing Scrum in a SAFe enterprise
  • Facilitating Scrum events
  • Facilitating effective Iteration execution
  • Supporting effective Program Increment execution
  • Supporting relentless improvement
  • Coaching agile teams for maximum business results
  • Supporting DevOps implementation

To learn all these beneficial skills and become the ultimate Scrum Master, you’ll need to learn about quite a few topics. In our SSM certification course, we’ll cover subjects like:

  • Introducing Scrum in SAFe
  • Characterizing the role of the Scrum Master
  • Experiencing Program Increment planning
  • Facilitating Iteration execution
  • Finishing the Program Increment
  • Coaching the agile team

Now that you know what you’ll be learning, you may be wondering about who exactly should be taking this course. Is your Scrum Master the only one who should know these skills? Are there other team members that will benefit from the Scrum Master training course? Read on to find out!

Who Should Take the Course?

The Scrum Master training course is typically intended for individuals who are new to the role of Scrum Master or who want to better understand the role and how it fits in a SAFe enterprise. Attendees typically include but are not limited to:

  • New or existing Scrum Masters
  • Team Leads
  • Release Train Engineers

Though these are the typical attendees, we encourage anyone interested in learning more about the agile environment to attend!

Are There Any Prerequisites?

While it never hurts to have a bit of experience with the agile methodology before taking this certified Scrum Master training course, it’s not a requirement. Anyone interested in learning more about being a Scrum Master is welcome to attend!

However, if you are planning on taking the SAFe® Scrum Master (SSM) certification exam (which we hope you are!), it may be beneficial to have the following prerequisites:

  • Familiarity with agile concepts and principles
  • Awareness of Scrum, Kanban, and Extreme Programming (XP)
  • Working knowledge of software and hardware development processes

The Benefits of Being Scrum Master Certified

Adding another certification to your resume can never hurt. In fact, becoming Scrum Master certified offers plenty of benefits. We’ve outlined just a few of these benefits below.
