    We have a unique training program for Scrum Master and Scrum Product Owner beginners that combines comprehensive classroom training, certification preparation and hands on experience developing real software.

    If you represent a not-for-profit organization...
    We wish to give our students experience creating real software for real customers. Therefore, we are constantly on the lookout for projects we can do pro-bono for worthy causes! During the past two years we've undertaken software projects to help children with cancer, environmental activism, a large medical center in San jose, Ca., an organization benefiting foster children, and many others.

    Click on information for not-for-profits to submit a project for us to work on.

    If you have technical software development skills and you wish to volunteer for a worthy cause...
    We primarily teach Scrum Masters and Scrum Product Owners. We usually rely on volunteers to make up the Scrum teams they lead. The volunteers get valuable work experience that can be shown on a resume, job references, and the personal satisfaction that comes from helping a worthy cause in a unique way. Many developers volunteer over and over to work on project after project.

    If you are or represent an Employer...
    Our goal is not just to prepare our students to take and pass tests. We throw them into the "deep end" by having them work through the hardest part of any Scrum Team's life. They are given a novel project and a team of developers who have never worked together before. Their job is to make sense of the situation and build up teamwork fast enough to deliver working software in only 4-6 weeks. During this baptism of fire they deal with real-world problems such as personality conflicts, unrealistic expectations, clients changing their minds and having to figure out how to deliver real value.

    Graduates of this program have more than just a piece of paper saying they are "certified". They have knowledge and judgement that can only come from having done Scrum rather than simply hearing lectures about it. ,
