FAQ

We offer a combination of live, in-person courses as well as live, online courses delivered via digital channels. We also do work with corporate clients where we host private classes on the company’s premises or preferred venue.

It is tough, but fair. The PSFS course will provide you with everything you need to know to master the more advanced elements of facilitation, but will also provide you with everything you need to pass the exam.

Attending a PSFS course and passing the international exam validates your learning, knowledge, and facilitation capabilities. It provides potential employers and clients with a quality assurance that you are a proven, safe investment.

Scrum.Org provide you with a free, second attempt on the PSM II examination as long as you have taken the first exam within 14 days of the course. Connect with us for additional assistance before you rewrite the examination.

No, you don’t. A new breed of Agile Leader and entrepreneur is beginning to understand the value of the facilitation skillset and are actively looking to adopt those skills, so we do have a fair amount of managers / leaders / entrepreneurs attending the PSFS course.

Ken Schwaber, the cofounder of Scrum, is also the founder of Scrum.Org International. As such, the PSFS or Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills certification is internationally recognized, certified, and respected.

Very much so. Facilitation is a key skill for a scrum master as well as an agile coach, and the deep dive into proven facilitation techniques will only strengthen your arsenal and capabilities as an agile coach.

Things happen. We get that. If you are attending the course and are not able to attend the second day, we are more than happy to accommodate you for day two on any of our future courses. Connect with us on info@apd.coach
