Frequently asked questions about the self-paced online courses!

What is the difference between an live training and an online course?

The live trainings are conducted by a certified trainer remotely or as an on-site seminar and are certified by the Scrum Alliance (Scrum Master, Scrum Developer, Product Owner, Agile Leadership, Scrum Foundations), Kanban University (Kanban) or other well-known and internationally recognized companies. All trainings are conducted live on a specific date.

The online courses are recorded e-learning courses from Agile Academy trainers. Thus, the modules of these courses can be started and completed at any time. All online courses include a certificate from the course provider or conducting trainer.

Are the online courses certified?

Upon successful completion of a course, participants receive a certificate from the partner company that created the e-learning online course.

How long does a self-study course take?

The length of the courses varies between the individual topics. The online courses on the roles of Scrum Master, Product Owner and Agile Leader involve about 16 to 20 hours of self-study, while the foundation courses can be worked through in five to eight hours.
The courses themselves are divided into individual modules and lessons, which usually take between ten and 20 minutes to complete.

What is the difference between live training and online courses?

If you already have previous experience and are interested in the knowledge of a specific role and the associated activities, the online courses for Scrum Master, Product Owner or Agile Leader are certainly the right choice for you.
If you are new to agile and you want to get to know the basics, the Agile Fundamentals, probably the most well-known agile frameworks, are available to you as an online course free of charge.
Scrum Fundamentals then in turn covers the Scrum framework, associated roles and rituals to help you understand them better.

What content is covered?

Once you click on a course, you’ll see an overview with al learning objectives. There you can see which topics are covered in which module and how the course is structured in general.

How long do I have access to the course?

Once you are registered for a course and logged in, the course is available on the platform at any time. You can revisit completed courses at any time and repeat the modules or lessons.
