Special COVID-19 Statement
All Public Classes Open for Registration - Sunday, March 29, 2020

With the continued medical emergency, we will be offering live virtual Certified ScrumMaster and Scrum Certified Product Owner classes exclusively.  We are working hard to make sure that these classes meet the certification requirements and learning objectives as defined by the Scrum Alliance.  However, we firmly believe that in person training is the best for these certification workshops.  Our long-standing policy providing a no cost retake of any class within one year of the original class will apply for these virtual classes. 

We look forward to the day when the health conditions will permit a return to in person training.  We are today opening all future planned classes to registration.   Through the month of June, we expect all classes to be delivered in the virtual format.  Therefore, all scheduled public classes through June will be listed with the special virtual indication on the Scrum Alliance web site.  Classes after that date will be listed as in person classes.

Should conditions change for better or worse, we will act appropriately and notify registrants about any format changes.
