Training SAFe® Scrum Master (SSM)
In the two-day training course, participants learn about the role of the Scrum Master within a SAFe® company. The training builds on the current version 5.0 of the Scaled Agile Framework.

In contrast to the traditional Scrum Master Training, this training focuses on the role of the Scrum Master within the whole company. Teams learn how to carry out incremental planning (PI planning) successfully. This includes teaching the key components of Agile to scale to an entire enterprise.

The training is held in German, the training documents are written in English. Upon completion of the training, participants can take an exam for certification as a SAFe® Scrum Master and also receive 1-year access to the SAFe® Community Platform.
