Following the first day of class, we invite all participants to stay and attend a 5:00 pm reception with Jeff and the Scrum Inc. team. Beer, wine and snacks are on us.


All attendees will receive a letter of acknowledgement signed by Jeff stating that you have completed this course. Additionally, this course qualifies you for 16 PDUs. After the course email info@scruminc.com to learn how to claim your credits online. Upon completion of the course you will be registered for certification with the Scrum Alliance. Following the class, an email with your login and temporary password will be sent from the Scrum Alliance. Please add the email address “system@scrumalliance.org” to your contacts to ensure that you receive the welcome email from the Scrum Alliance. This email frequently ends up in spam folders.


No, you will not need a computer. In fact, we encourage you to turn off your devices during class.


There is no dress code. Most attendees wear business casual, jeans are fine. We suggest layers in the event the room temperature becomes uncomfortable for you.
