QRP International launches ABC – APMG Scrum Master qualification

QRP International is proud to announce the launch of new ABC – Scrum Master qualification.

ABC Scrum

Popular and widely adopted around the globe, Scrum is a framework for developing, delivering and sustaining complex products through effective team collaboration. Scrum Masters are responsible for promoting and supporting Scrum as defined in the Scrum Guide. Acting as servant-leader for the Scrum Team, Scrum Masters do this by helping everyone understand Scrum theory, practices, rules, and values.

Scrum Master qualification is offered by APMG and Agile Business Consortium: this new hands-on qualification is based on The Scrum Guide – the definitive guide to Scrum – created and maintained by Scrum’s creators.

SCRUM Master Certification

After your course you will be able to sit the APMG Scrum Master examination; a multiple-choice exam to be completed within 40 minutes.

You can complete the exam – either online or paper format – at the end of your course.
