Who Should Attend an A-CSPO Course
Active Certified Scrum Product Owners (CSPO) with at least 1 year of experience. You may still attend class with less than 1 year of experience, but you are unable to receive your A-CSPO until you have a full year of Product Owner experience.

If you do not have the 12 months of experience, but want to learn and apply these concepts, you can take the class and document the experience as you get it (you will not have the A-CSPO until you have all the experience documented).
- Accept the A-CSPO License Agreement and complete your Scrum Alliance membership profile.
Note: There is no exam for the A-CSPO certification and you are eligible based on successful completion all educator-designed components of the course and the 12 months of experience. You may take the A-CSPO course at any time after completing your CSPO certification, but you must have at least 12 months of Product Owner experience logged into your Scrum Alliance profile before you are eligible to receive your A-CSPO certification.

A-CSPO Certification Course Reviews
I liked that it was a good sized class, everyone was open to discussion, and there were great analogies that helped drive the information home.
The class interactions and the instructor's breadth of knowledge were great. I'll be able to help others with Agile and help to increase efficiency on the job with what I learned.
I really liked the instructor's stories on practical examples. I will be able to better influence our product leadership after this class.
I'm looking for a new career so this class helped me clearly understand the roles in Scrum. The group activities to apply knowledge were great. This class will help me in moving forward within this role.
The instructor's wealth of real world examples and experience was great! I'll be able to apply what I learned as I step into a PO position of a new dev team.
The practical application is essential to my learning style, the information flow was optimal for absorption and retention. I'll be rethinking, in an accessible way, the way I've worked and will refocus my job search on PO rolls.
The instructor's enthusiasm, knowledge of the subject matter, and ability to convey and communicate the nuances of the role were outstanding.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and humorous. I really liked the learning techniques for ordering. As someone new to Scrum, I'll have a framework to draw from. I'm looking forward to refining the backlog in a potential new role.
