Professional Scrum Master
The Professional Scrum Master course provides information and tools that you can use to ensure that Scrum is understood and enacted well by your team. This Training course covers the basics, including the framework, mechanics, and roles of Scrum. But it also teaches how to use Scrum to optimize value, productivity, and the total cost of ownership of software products. Students learn through instruction and team-based exercises, and are challenged to think on their feet to better understand what to do when they return to their workplaces. By attending the course, you’ll get a FREE attempt at the PSM I online assessment (a $100 value). You’ll also get $200 off the cost of the more advanced PSM II assessment. Learn more or book here.
Professional Scrum Developer
The Professional Scrum Developer course teaches students how to work in a Scrum Development Team, using modern software engineering practices and .NET to develop an increment of potentially releasable functionality. All of this is done as iterative incremental development within the Scrum framework. The course content is based on the Professional Scrum Developer Objective Domain. By attending the course, you’ll get a FREE attempt at the PSD I online assessment (a $200 value). Learn more or book here
Professional Scrum Foundations
The Professional Scrum Foundations course is the perfect introduction to Scrum for anyone new to the framework. Whether your team needs a flawless Scrum launch or needs to reboot a struggling Scrum implementation, this class lays the foundation for an effective Scrum team. Rather than coaching teams back from a poorly functioning Scrum implementation, PSF exposes these common missteps, increases the awareness of the associated symptoms, and provides prescriptive guidance to avoid going off track. By attending the course, you’ll get a FREE attempt at the PSM I on-line assessment (a $100 value) Learn more or book here

What People are Saying about Webgate
Derek and I worked together for 4 months at the same client who was undergoing a sustained coaching and adoption of Scrum. I had the opportunity to co-train, coach and mentor with Derek, and his calm, practical and result focussed style was great to see in action. Derek demonstrated a great knowledge of Agile, Lean and Scrum, as well as a fantastic ability to establish rapport while coaching people to find the answers, rather than provide the answer. I am looking forward to my next opportunity to work with Derek again.
I met Derek when he presented a Professional Scrum Master training course which I attended. His in-depth knowledge and obvious passion and enthusiasm for the subject was evident throughout the course. His ability to call on a wealth of experience and real-world examples reinforced the material being covered.
After the course I sat my assessment with confidence, happy that I had a firm understanding of Scrum and this was borne out when I passed the with a score that would not have been possible without the training I’d received.
Derek is extremely knowledgeable and is able to convey this superbly to a group using his own expertise as well as excellent presentation skills as a Trainer.
The 2 day course, to be a Professional Scrum Master (PSM1), was superb and jam-packed full so I am now able to be a better practitioner as well as preparing me to pass the exam! For a Scrum Master course which is practical, insightful, engaging and good value for money – I recommend him very highly! Thanks Derek
