Take the worlds first, and most respected agile product management certification course, from a Scrum Alliance approved company and an authorized Certified Scrum Trainer (CST)
Take the worlds first, and most respected agile product management certification course, from an approved organization
The Scrum Alliance Certified Product Owner® Certification was the first certification in the agile community to focus on product management. Product Owners apply an effectiveness paradigm, ensuring that we deliver those items that are most likely to increase company ROI, add value for the customer, and maximize learning. The continual learning from each release is used to adjust plans for future releases.
During this session you will hone your skills by breaking large chunks of work into smaller slices, prioritizing them, and then describing them to the extent necessary for a development team to build. You will focus on the strategy of what to build, and in what sequence, putting you in a position to lead both the strategy and technical execution aspects of product ownership. You will learn how to do all of this in a deep collaboration (no you don't talk to users and write stuff up for others to build, at least not anymore) that spans the organization, including business partners, end users, quality assurance (QA), developers, business analysts (BA) and even end users.
After successful completion of the course, and acceptance of the license agreement, you will be registered as a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Product Owner®. More importantly, you will be in a better position to help your organization apply agile methods to drive effectiveness. In addition to the Product Owners, anyone involved in product development, including business users, business analysts, testers, coders, etc., often take, and benefit, this session.

Very knowledgeable Instructor, was able to make the class comfortable and provided tons of scenario to help better understand. Great class and I look forward to training with him again.
I found that the information regarding Scrum and the instructor's use of real life experiences / examples were extremely valuable.
I really enjoyed David's energy and subject knowledge throughout the two day session. He was always willing to work through lunch or after class in order to go over anything that was unclear. I also found that the practice tests that were provided truly helped me to pass the CSM Exam. Lastly, even though the class was virtual, it still felt that we were all together in once class room. The breakout rooms gave the students an opportunity to meet one another and collaborate on the answers to the questions.
The instructor has the ability to show contents in different ways and make the class fun. Also, the content represents in the way that are useful in real world and more practical than theories. The interactions between students are great.
One of the best video share sessions I've been in post-virus. David did a great job of keeping the class engaged, and clearly values teaching methodology as much as he values Scrum and Agile. Information and discussion provided the opportunity to discuss real world examples and experiences. Interaction and learning tools covered a surprisingly wide range of technologies, several of which I hadn't seen before or been aware of, I got some bonus inspiration for how to engage with stakeholders during online sessions!
Even though we were in a virtual environment the small class size allowed us to be interactive, ask questions and participate in activities we would have done in an in-person class setting.
The class definitely went well beyond the Scrum Guide which was a good thing. I was very much prepared for the exam. I learned quite a bit that will be useful to take back to my organization.
The exercises where good ... Loved the MIRO board and the ability to collaborate with others on that.
With right tools in place ( Zoom, Miro, kahoot) I didn't feel that its virtual session. Team members as well as Donald made it interactive and informative.
Don was a great instructor and kept things lively and engaging. The course content and presentation were also top notch.
David made the entire virtual session entertaining. In addition to achieving a solid understanding of the Scrum framework we participated in many thought provoking exercises skirting the fringe of the framework. It makes sense to follow the framework in an attempt to achieve the common goal while continually improving the process and simultaneously providing flexibility to adapt to change and uncertainty. The strong emphasis on collaboration and transparency within a team promote self-examination and a realization that we can all do better.
I liked relearning skills I've forgotton over the last four years. The information has helped me to apply to my current position.
David was great! He is friendly, came prepared, and was very comfortable with the material which allowed him to make the class much more conversational than just a subject matter expert at the front while we all watch quietly. David encouraged us to ask questions at any time along the way and this opened up to allow us to bring our experience into the training. I am sure that makes it more interesting for him but it also lets us all bond with each other along the way and hear varying points of view while learning the material. Thank you for a great class experience!
I highly recommend David's Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training. It was immediately evident David knew his stuff and was bringing his real-world experience to the class. If you have concerns about dull virtual courses, you won't find that here. It was very engaging with lots of hands-on activities, leaving me sure that I could immediately apply what I had learned. I would, without a doubt, take other courses from David.
Excellent real world examples of how to apply learning. Great brainstorming sessions and overview of good practices

Go beyond the mechanics of collecting requirements and learn how to empirically discover what to build
The Certified Product Owner® Certification focuses on the effectiveness paradigm.
A good Product Owner (PO) ensures that we deliver what was asked for, a great Product Owner leads a discovery
process to deliver what is actually valuable
(what is asked for and what is valuable are often not the same).
The PO ensures that items that are most likely to increase company ROI, add value for the customer, and maximize learning are built, then released. The development and release processes generate learnings that guide future releases. By continual learning you can ensure long term success even in the face of short term failures.
After the session you will be registered with the Scrum Alliance as a Certified Product Owner®. More importantly, you will have the conceptual basis on how to determine:
You will apply the Scrum framework to product development and practice a dual-track readiness maturation process to prepare your team for release planning and sprint planning events gaining a practical perspective on applying the roles, artifacts and ceremonies of Scrum via hands on exercises, discussion and simulation.
You will learn how a variety of other frameworks strengthens Scrum and allows you to maximize value delivery.
Exercises, discussions, simulations, games, yes we really mean games, case studies, examples and fun, yes even jokes, are interwoven throughout the course to illustrate the principles being taught in an immersive, engaging manner so that you learn, while enjoying yourself.
