On 10 Jun 2012, the first student of our Scrum Master training course achieved a score of 93% on his first attempt at the Professional Scrum Master (PSM I) exam. We’re delighted to welcome Dave Carson to the community of Professional Scrum Masters.
Say “Hello!” to Dave …
Dave Carson, a contract software developer currently working at North Devon District Hospital, attended WebGate’s first ever Scrum Master training course held in Plymouth on 1 Jun 2012.
The course, a mix of instruction, real-world q&a’s and practice assessments, is designed to teach Scrum basics and help students pass the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) exam. The exam itself is conducted independently by Scrum.org, an organization headed by Ken Schwaber, one of the co-authors of the definitive Scrum Guide.
During the course, it was evident that Dave had a firm grasp of the subject. He aced his second practice assessment with a score of 100%. After the course, Dave revised, read the Scrum Guide and worked through the free assessment multiple times.
Dave took the online exam on 10 Jun 2012 and passed first time with a score of 93%. Way to go, Dave! Welcome to the community of Professional Scrum Masters.
Here’s what Dave had to say about the course:
Do you want to pass your PSM I exam first time?
You too can be like Dave. Our Scrum course is the most cost efficient way to learn Scrum and get the insights you need to pass your PSM I exam at the first attempt. With your PSM I certificate, you can expand your job opportunities and potentially increase your salary!
As well as providing scheduled public courses in the South West, we are happy to provide courses anywhere in the World. We’re also happy to provide on-site training. Just contact us for availability and a quote.
Passing Scrum Exam with one day training sounds great, my CSM training is all way back but well your so called “South West” might require 12 hours flight for me 🙂
PSM 1 Exam can be done without training at all but think understanding scrum is stimm more than passing a exam.
I agree. The PSM I exam CAN be taken without any training. I’ve written an article to help people pass their PSM I exam without attending a course. I also agree that Scrum is about much more than passing an exam. I’m contracting as an Agile Coach / Scrum Master at a client site at present and I still learn something new almost every day.
Getting a Scrum certificate is a great starting point for working in Scrum. But all of us who work in this space know that Scrum is very easy to learn, and very difficult to master.
ps: The reference to the “South West” means the South West of England
