Questions about the Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner®
This is an advanced course for Certified Scrum Product Owners® who have already been in this role for one year and would like to further increase their impact. The focus is on deepening all areas of the Product Owner's work.
First of all, passion, willingness to learn and a positive attitude. But there are also actual prerequisites for the certification. While any inclined Product Owner can take the course, the Scrum Alliance certification is only available if you have the following prerequisites:
- an existing valid Certified Scrum Product Owner®. Unfortunately, certifications from other providers are not recognized by the Scrum Alliance. We will be happy to advise you on how to join or switch.
- one year of practice in the role of Product Owner. We are also happy to advise you personally on this. You can attend the course before the end of the year. In this case, you will receive the certification later after the course.
- self-directed content preparation in our learning management system.
- attendance of the corresponding course as on-site or live online.
- The participation in at least one focus topic webinar and one application practice webinar.

This is how participants rate the Certified Scrum Product Owner® courses from DasScrumTeam
Vor allem die spielerischen Übungen haben mir sehr gut geholfen, die Theorie zu erleben.
Super Balance zwischen Diskussionen im Kurs, Lehrinhalten und praktischen Übungen im Team.
Wer eine seriöse Frontalschulung möchte, ist hier garantiert fehl am Platz. Hier geht es agil, bunt und interaktiv zu. Lerninhalte werden anschaulich und einprägsam vermittelt. Praktische Gruppenarbeiten und Theorie werden gut gemischt und verständlich erklärt.
Peter Beck versteht es ausgezeichnet, die Scrum - Charakteristik und Grundidee den Teilnehmern anschaulich und verständlich zu vermitteln.
Bestens zu empfehlen
Sehr praxisnah, authentisch und sympathisch. Der Kurs hat mir viel Freude bereitet und mich in der täglichen Anwendungen von Scrum deutlich weiter gebracht. Danke.
Eine absolute Empfehlung für jeden der Scrum in seinem Unternehmen etablieren möchte!
Besonders gefallen hat mir der interaktive, spielerische Aufbau des Kurses. Viel Wissen konnte so auf angenehme Art vermittelt werden.
"Als Einsteiger ins Thema 'Scrum' hat mir dieser Kurs eine sehr wertvolle Basis für meine berufliche Arbeit gebracht. Der Kurs war praxisbezogen aufgebaut und ich freue mich, das Gelernte in der 'harten Realität' anzuwenden."
Durch die offene Art und professionelle Abwicklung war der Kurs ein voller Erfolg. Ich habe in diesen drei Tagen enorm viel profitiert und kann „DasScrumTeam“ wärmstens weiterempfehlen!
Mir hat der Kurs sehr gut gefallen und ich habe viel dabei gelernt.
Ich habe wenig Erfahrung mit Scrum, fand den Kurs sehr kurzweilig und interessant. Ich habe einen guten ersten Überblick erhalten; auf die Eigenheiten der Rolle "Product Owner" wurde ausreichend eingegangen.
Ein Kurs "Aus der Praxis - für die Praxis".
Mir ist vieles zum Vorgehen und vor allem zu meiner Rolle sehr viel klarer geworden.
