How do I follow the Product Owner training?

When you register for the Hybrid training:

  1. you will receive the written teaching material at home a few days before the training
  2. log in to our Virtual Classroom on the first and second half day of classes (both from 09:00-13:00) via your laptop. Because there are a maximum of 7 other participants, the interaction is guaranteed, just like in a real Scrum team
  3. you get a personal online e-learning for your laptop and tablet. Here you can further master the material on the basis of video material and quizzes and, if you wish, also plan and take all your exams.
    together with the other participants as a Scrum team, you will follow the practical workshop day (from 09:30 to 16:30) physically at our location in Haarlem or via our Virtual Classroom. The choice is yours. During this workshop day you will practice the practice and you will experience how the Scrum theory comes to life in practice and what it is like to be a Product Owner in practice. If you have opted for the Virtual Class, you will get to know the online tools here at the same time.

If you register for the Physical training on location:

  1. you will receive the written teaching material during the first training day
  2. On both days you will complete the training from 09:30 to 17:00 together with a maximum of 7 other participants, which alternately consists of theory and practical exercises. During the practical exercises you will experience how the Scrum theory comes to life in practice and what it is like to be a Product Owner in practice.
  3. you will receive your personal online e-learning for your laptop and tablet at the end of the first training day. In this you can use video material and quizzes to master the material even further and plan and take your exam

And what if I already have practical experience as a Product Owner?

If you like to learn the theory together with others and to be able to ask questions and have it explained on the basis of practical examples, but you do not need the practical workshop day, you can also choose to only go for the Hybrid register for virtual classroom training and not participate in the workshop day. You will receive a discount of €80 on the prices below. You can indicate this option – after choosing a hybrid training – in the registration form.

Where do I follow the training?

When you register for the Hybrid training you:

  1. follow the theoretical part of the training via our Virtual Class on Wednesday and Thursday from 09:00 to 13:00.
  2. follow the practical workshop day of your choice physically at our location in Haarlem or via our virtual class on a Friday from 09:30 to 16:30 (options appear on the registration form after choice of training).

If you register for a Physical training you:

  1. follow the theoretical and practical training on two consecutive days from 09:00 to 17:00 at our location in Haarlem on the Nieuwe Gracht. (Our locations in Amsterdam and Maastricht will reopen later this year).

all are in the city center, within walking distance of the NS central station and with good parking.
of course you can also follow the training in-company on request.

How do I certify myself as a Product Owner?

With the Scrum Product Owner exam you certify yourself as a certified Scrum Product Owner. At the end of the first training day, you will have access to a personalized e-learning environment. You will find a lot of video material here so that you can watch parts of the training again at a later moment. You then also take the exam via the e-learning environment to certify yourself as a Product Owner. Read more

Which Scrum certificate do I receive?

The choice is yours. In our view, the two most important internationally recognized Scrum Product Owner certificates are: Scrum Product Owner Certified abbreviated as ‘SPOC’ and Professional Scrum Product Owner abbreviated as ‘PSPO’.
Of these, SPOC is the most generic, not specifically IT-oriented, certificate. PSPO from scrum.org is, partly due to its history, more IT-oriented. The Scrum theory required to obtain each of the certificates is of course the same. In general, PSPO exam questions are slightly more IT-oriented. Read more
