The topics that will be covered in the 1-day Agile and Scrum classes are scrum framework, scrum roles, scrum meetings, scrum artifacts, and scrum simulation (optional). One can earn eight professional development units (8 PDUs) for attending them.
These trainings are suitable for business analysts, project managers, developers, testers, managers, directors. It is also ideal for those who will be a part of the Scrum team, people outside the software industry or those who want to explore Agile and Scrum, but are unsure of what it is.
The trainings will be conducted in the following cities:
*San Diego (4/5),
*San Jose (5/3),
*San Diego (6/21),
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 affordable option would enable many who could otherwise have not attended this class, to enroll and benefit from it. Therefore, it asked that those who can pay the regular ($195) price to do their bit, so that everyone can attend the course.
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.
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 development 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 some of the testimonials.
There is a referral program where one can get rewarded with a $25 Amazon gift-card for each referral who has signed up and paid the regular price.
