DISCIPLINED AGILE SCRUM MASTER WORKSHOPS

DAcert---small-graph.jpg

Drum roll please…The first of the new Agile Certification Journey certifications and accompanying training workshops is here! We’re pleased to share the Disciplined Agile Scrum Master (DASM) workshops are now available following the official launch, Monday, 12 October. Professionals can now register for the DA Scrum Master (DASM) training workshop and exam here.

DASM is a nine-lesson, instructor-led course that shows you how to use Disciplined Agile (DA) to improve your team’s way of working. In just two days, you’ll become familiar with foundational agile and lean practices that DA supports, practice using the tool kit to solve problems, and learn how to build high-performance teams. No prerequisites are required.

Looking ahead, the Disciplined Agile Senior Scrum Master (DASSM) training workshop and exam will launch in December, and the Disciplined Agile Coach (DAC) and Disciplined Agile Value Stream Consultant (DAVSC) training workshops and exams will launch in early 2021. We will continue to keep you informed of the timeline and alert you as training workshops become available for registration.  

These four Disciplined Agile certifications join PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® to create the Agile Certification Journey, a comprehensive suite of agile training and certifications that extends beyond any single agile approach and creates a pathway to deepening agile experience.

We continue to update the DA microsite on PMI.org with these details, but we admit progress has been a bit slower than we had hoped and we appreciate your patience. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the newly available DASM workshops.
