The course is split into four core modules over two intensive days


Although it is not a formal prerequisite, we have found that this certification is best pursued after an Agile foundation course such as Scrum Foundations, Agile Fundamentals or CSM/PSM. 

Pre-work is provided and is focused on self-reflection using the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel. There is also a pre-call to support you in completing the prework and setting you up for success during the training.
