Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
Through its unique Pay it Forward Program, Conscires Agile Practices enables those in transition to benefit from Agile and Scrum. The spirit behind this program is that money should not be a barrier for learning. For anyone in transition, each class has a Pay it Forward pricing of $95, which is limited to 5 seats per class.This option would enable many who could otherwise have not attended this class, to enroll and benefit from it.
The purpose for conducting these classes is to spread awareness about Scrum, as Conscires strongly believes in its capacity to transform workplaces for the better. As there are many people who are going through a job transition and are often making a career change, a new tool like Scrum would give them an edge for the interview and be beneficial for them in their new team. In short, these classes have enabled Conscires to give back to the community. Indeed, many of the trainers have chosen to train for Conscires because of this particular cause.
Like any other training, there are some basic expenditures like paying for the trainer's hotel and travel expenses, the training room, etc. Therefore, it asked that those who can pay the regular price ($195) to do their bit, so that everyone can attend the course.
Thus far, this model has been used for 1-day trainings on 'Scrum - Values, Foundations and Practices', 'Product Visioning Workshop' and 'Agile Estimation and Planning Workshop'. Although these courses do not carry any certification, one can earn professional develoment units (PDUs) for attending them.
From March 2011, the Pay it Forward Program has enabled 10 trainers in over 100 trainings across 20 cities in the US to equip over 1200 people with Scrum. Read more about what some of those people have said: http://agile.conscires.com/testimonials/
