No need to wait. If you already have at least 12 months of work experience as a Product Owner (from within the past five years), then you have met the work experience requirement for the certification. Role-based work experience must be entered into your Scrum Alliance® certification dashboard. Then, once you enroll in an A-CSPO™ program and complete all coursework, you’ll be eligible to receive your certification. Also, if you have at least 24 months of experience working as a Product Owner (also within the past five years), you can progress directly from the A-CSPO to CSP-PO™without waiting a year in between each certification.
