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 take our SAFe Scrum Master class and earn your SSM certification.

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

Following the overwhelming success of our online SAFe training, we plan to continue to offer public training online to make it accessible to our clients around Australia and across the globe. You can learn about our approach to remote SAFe training here.

Great course! Completed study to the point today where I could start running practice exams, and I am happy to report that I am now certified as a SAFe 5 Scrum Master! So much material in the course that I'm still working through personally and discussing with my colleagues... but the first hurdle is passed. Thanks once again Emma and Claire!

Thank you Adrienne Wilson and Nicholene Africa for delivering an engaging and informative Certified SAFe® 5 Scrum Master course!
And many thanks to the other attendees. As usual, I found that I learn as much from my peers as instructors (a sign of a good instructor/course). It was interesting to see scrum and agile through the SAFe perspective and I look forward to utilizing that knowledge in the near future.
