For levels beyond CSM® and CSPO®, the approved educator has the choice of constructing an in-person, on-demand, virtual (“live” or not pre-recorded content) — or a blended combination of the above — to create a personalized educational experience for each student. Each Scrum Alliance®-approved educator will deliver a customizable model that fits their students’ unique needs.
The delivery model for this certification is determined by the approved educator, which means there may be online options for completing this program. The most common model you’re likely to see is a blended approach to learning. The blended delivery model allows for various implementations to meet the needs of both the student and the educator. The primary purpose of competency-based learning is the accumulation, practice, reflection, and validation of relevant knowledge, skills, and abilities. This can be done face-to-face or via online training, partial self-study, and assessment, mentoring, coaching, or any combination thereof.
