Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any pre-requisites?
If you have time to do so before the course, please refresh your understanding of Scrum by reading the Scrum Guide.
Please note that participation in the full two days training is mandatory in order to be registered to take the exam and achieve the associated certification.
What do I need for the training?
- Zoom – We will be using Zoom to host the training including the features of video conferencing, screen sharing and breakout rooms. Please ensure that you have the latest version installed, that you have access to Zoom, and that your webcam is turned on as much as possible to maintain engagement. You will receive the Zoom call meeting details (link to join, Meeting ID and password) for the training in your course ticket email after you have booked your space.
- MURAL – We will be using MURAL, an innovative and cutting edge platform for collaboration. Please check that you are able to access MURAL on the device you will be using for the course ahead of the training. Signing up for a MURAL account is not essential as you will be able to access the Mural boards via the visitor link provided to you on the training.
- Google Docs – You will also need to have access to Google Docs.
As the training is online and we will be using a variety of tools at once, using a laptop, computer or device with a large screen is important to ensure that you can actively participate without the limitations of using a smaller device. Reliable internet connection is also vital – see more below.
Due to the tools that we will be using for the training, we recommend that you have an internet download speed of at least 10Mbps to be able to have the best experience. You can test your internet connection here.
How is the online training different to the in-person training?
The course structure and content itself is very similar. The Learning Outcomes are the same, as is the certification and we have amended the courses with exercises more appropriate and effective for an online/remote experience.
With remote training and facilitation, the need to take breaks is increased. There will be regular short breaks throughout the training, roughly every 45-50 minutes, with a longer 45 minute break for lunch (for full day courses).
The course has been designed from the ground up for remote delivery using tried and tested techniques. Our trainers are experienced trainers and coaches and have used all of these skills plus a wealth of additional research into adult education to craft an engaging and compelling remote experience.
