CSPO Certification Training Overview

3Back’s Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training bundle+ provides the tools and information necessary to help you get started with Scrum at your own company. Through a combination of robust simulations, hands-on experience, and high-quality instruction, students will learn the fundamentals of Scrum and how to facilitate, coach, and lead an agile project.

Scrum Product Owner training is 100% online and hosted on a learning management platform. There are no required software applications or additional training materials needed.

Course Topics Include:

  • The Scrum Team
  • The Team's Product Owner
  • Leadership
  • The Backlog
  • Capabilities and Chores
  • Backlog Refinement

There are two parts of the training experience, and you have control of both of them:

First, The Certified Scrum Product Owner Course. You will take an online course that teaches you about Scrum Product Ownership and verifies that you have achieved the Learning Objectives the Scrum Alliance has established. You will learn about the three main topics in Scrum: People, Product, and Process

Second, 4 Open Office sessions (4 hours each) offered by the instructors. Each of these ‘Office Hours’ will be on a specific topic: one of People, Product, Process, or Extras (Scaling, Project Management, etc). You can mix and match these as you please; you can take one of each, the same one 4 times, or anything in between.

As an entrepreneur at a young age, Doug Shimp was practicing agile before he knew the meaning of the word. Leading a business required extreme teamwork, rapid feedback loops, and daily stand-ups to get the job done to stakeholder specifications on time and under budget. Doug learned the value of the Scrum framework from the ground up. Fortune 50 companies, small start-ups, and every business in between have reaped the benefits of face time with Doug.

  • What is On-Demand with office hours?

    On-Demand is a blended approach of both instructor-led and independent, self-paced learning. As a learner, you can find your own rhythm and you choose how fast you go. You have up to 6 months to complete the course. (see our policy page for details).

    The typical Module includes 20-60 minutes of reading (depending on your reading speed), and a multiple-choice quiz. After you complete these, you need to work with 1-2 StudyBuddies to discuss the module/quiz and do one or more scenario-based exercises. Each module will take about 1-3 hours of your time, and will require you to work with StudyBuddies (either someone in the course or outside of the course). You also need to attend 4 office hour sessions, each 4 hours.

  • How do I become a Certified Scrum Product Owner?

    If you would like to become a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO), you need to complete the CSPO course taught by an approved trainer and attend 4 Open Office Hours (4 hours each); no exam is required at this time to obtain your CSPO certification.

  • Is there an exam following the CSPO class?

    Currently, the Scrum Alliance does not require an exam to obtain certification following your CSPO class.

  • What are the requirements to finish my CSPO certification?

    In order to gain the CSPO certification, you must do two things:

    Complete 17 self-paced, on-demand modules, on topics like “Scrum in a Nutshell”, “The Team’s Product Owner”, and “Backlog Refinement”.

    Attend 4x4 Office Hours (4 four hour sessions with the trainers. You have up to 6 months to complete the course. (see our policy page for details).

  • How long does it take to finish the course?

    You have up to 6 months to complete the course. The average completion time is 2-4 weeks.

    Fastest: A fast pace would be a few days for completion. You need to complete all of the Modules first, then you need to attend 4 four hour Office Hours, and we are planning to have 4 available per week.

    Quick: If you want to be quick, it makes sense to do it in a month. Do 3-4 modules a week, then attend 4 Office Hours.

    Typical: A typical path would be to spend 3 months on this, doing about one module a week, then attend 4 Office Hours as you can.

    Minimum: We expect you to be finished within 6 months of starting. See our policy page for more details.
