Become a Professional Scrum Trainer
Join the community and enable the world
Professional Scrum TrainersTM (PSTs) are professionals licensed by Scrum.org to teach the official Scrum.org courses. They are experts in Scrum and have extensive experience applying, leading, teaching, and coaching it. They have been servant-leaders at an organizational level. They are active in local agile communities, as well as the broader global agile and Scrum movements.
All PSTs use the same highly-tuned and standardized Scrum.org courseware bringing a consistent learning experience around the world. Trainers bring their own style and experience to their courses, but using consistent materials ensures that all PSTs are delivering the same high-quality content to each and every student regardless of which PST teaches the course and where it is taught.
These trainers continuously evaluate and improve themselves through the use of student feedback and student assessments. Through our course material crowd-sourcing program with our PSTs, they work with Scrum.org to continually improve the courses and related materials.
Such credible and consistent learning experiences are highly recognized in the Scrum training marketplace for consistency, professionalism and the highest quality trainers and materials.

Some Thoughts from our Candidates
"Throughout the PST journey, I have received countless feedbacks, for which I am most grateful."
Magdalena Kucharska, Current PST
"Learning as part of a community is more fun and effective. I have grown as a Scrum professional and trainer during this process, and, as hard or intense as it has been at times, it has been great fun. The opportunity to learn from very knowledgeable Scrum.org members and PSTs, and from other PST candidates during the CTE, was quite unique overall."
