Learn Online With 3Back

Don’t Let COVID-19 Disrupt Your Scrum Training.
Learn Online With 3Back.

Like all of you, we at 3Back are contending with the overwhelming impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on our daily lives. We also are sensitive to the reality the COVID-19 pandemic brings to classroom learning. We take our role as educators very seriously and believe we must prioritize the health and well-being of our Scrum learning community. That is why we moved all of our upcoming Scrum Training classes to a web-based format. Until further notice, our Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO), courses will be available online.

What students are saying about our online classes:

“Well organized online course. Would highly recommend to my friends.”

“I was supposed to do this training at the UofM but the seminar was cancelled when classes were suspended. I’m glad I tried to find another class instead of waiting until summer session. . . . I learned a lot. Like, a lot a lot a lot.”

What Can You Expect from Online CSM and CSPO Training?

3Back is known throughout the Scrum community for our robust, hands-on training. We also understand the unmatched benefits of experiential learning and group facilitated discovery and discussions. We’ve taken our CSM and CSPO Training and transformed them into remote, collaborative learning experiences. Each CSM or CSPO virtual training includes:

  • 2-days of CSM or CSPO online training
    CSM or CSPO Training is 14 hours of total instruction by a 3Back Scrum Trainer. Each daily session offers 7 hours of remote classroom training. Each online course prepares participants to take the CSM or CSPO Scrum Alliance Certifications.
  • 40-minute modules
    CSM and CSPO topics are broken down into multiple 40-minute modules to allow time to digest information and take breaks as needed.
  • Virtual, interactive small group discussions
    Working in small groups, participants will engage in collaborative virtual activities with peers. It’s hands-on classroom-style learning without the classroom.
