Certifications Supported

  • This training encompasses syllabus for PMI-ACP® and Professional Scrum Master certifications.
  • PMI-ACP® syllabus is the most comprehensive syllabus available in the industry and this is the best certification available in the industry at this point in time. However, PMI-ACP® requires thorough preparation before you can pass the PMI-ACP® examination
  • The Scrum Master is a foundational certification. The intention of the Scrum Master certification is to get you acquainted with Scrum and Agile.
  • Therefore the Scrum Master syllabus is completely covered in the Virtual training and candidate can learn beyond the Scrum Master syllabus during the Virtual training.
  • Amit's Scrum workshop is a comprehensive workshop intended towards "Getting Knowledge" along with passing certification examination.
  • The Exams of Scrum Master and PMI-ACP® are completely different and therefore Amit will guide you for each of the exams separately.
  • It is left to the individuals to decide whether they want to appear for Scrum Master certification or PMI-ACP® certification. Amit will guide candidates on both the certification examinations.
