SAFe Scrum Master with SSM Certification


This SSM training gives an understanding of  the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe® (Scaled Agile Framework®) enterprise. Attending this course prepares you to take the SAFe 6 Scrum Master exam in order to receive the SAFe Scrum Master (SSM) certification.

Applying the Scrum Master role within a Scaled Agile Framework enterprise according to SAFe, version 6

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, and prepares attendees to successfully plan and execute the Program Increment (PI), the primary enabler of alignment throughout all levels of a SAFe organization.This includes learning the key components of Agile at scale development, how Scrum is facilitated throughout the enterprise, and how to execute Iteration Planning.

Attendees discover how to build high performing Agile teams by becoming a servant leader and coach, and how to coach those teams to deliver the maximum business value at scale. SAFe 6 Scrum Master (SSM) certification signifies that people are prepared to perform the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe environment, increasing their value to teams and organizations that are implementing SAFe.

Attendees may be eligible to apply for 15 PDUs toward their continuing education requirements with the Project Management Institute (PMI) for PMP and PMI-ACP certifications.

SAFe® and Scaled Agile Framework® are registered marks of Scaled Agile, Inc.
