There are articles on Reddit and Quora that have lively debates over whether it’s worth someone with existing CSM or CSPO qualifications investing in advanced Scrum Training. The main contention being that on-the-job experience counts as much if not more than formal qualifications. What’s missed in such debates is that the combination of formal training and experiences has an additive effect. A person can frame their experience with the new techniques they learn through further study. A new blog from Applied Frameworks, “Four Reasons to Invest in Advanced Scrum Training” expands on this and the career acceleration advanced Scrum Training brings.
But there are many advanced Scrum training courses available so how to choose? If your goal is simply to gain an A-CSM or A-CSPO simply as another piece of paper, then there are many to choose from. If however you are looking to truly up-skill then a course with practical experience, not just theory is required. You may even be considering the pathway to CSP-SM, CSP-PO or further.
The Applied Frameworks Online Academy provides advanced Scrum learners with over forty hours of on the job practice and designed to give learners new ideas, tools and frameworks, and gain experience to give confidence for their next job interview.
