Course Description

Are you looking for strategies to improve your processes and to enhance your team’s agility? Disciplined Agile® Scrum Master (DASM) is an instructor-led training workshop that shows you how to use the Disciplined Agile® (DA™) Toolkit — a toolkit that focuses on the decisions you need to consider, the options available to you and the trade-offs associated with these options. You’ll learn the foundational agile and lean practices that DA supports, use the toolkit to solve problems and learn how to build a high-performance team. Filled with activities, animations, supplemental reading and more, this course will prepare you to take Project Management Institute’s (PMI’s) Disciplined Agile® Scrum Master (DASM) certification exam.

SAIT has been reviewed and approved as a provider of Disciplined Agile training by PMI. As a PMI Authorized Training Partner (ATP), we meet PMI-established quality assurance criteria and our instructors for DIGI-012 are authorized to teach Disciplined Agile Scrum Master.

This 14-hour workshop includes two instructor-led Zoom sessions and individual student access to PMI’s online learning platform. Course fees include certified instructor expertise, PMI digital course content and learning materials and the cost of the DASM exam (first attempt only.) The PMI membership fee is optional and not included. Complete the course to receive the DASM exam link from PMI, at which point you’ll have 60 days within which to write the exam.

Note: Registration for DIGI 012 closes two days prior to the course start date.
