Professional Scrum Product Owner™ Certification- Eligibility

Know who can attend the PSPO™ certification training and exam

PSPO™ is an entry-level certification to become a Product Owner in Scrum organizations. But what is the eligibility for PSPO™ certification?  Let’s have a look at the eligibility criteria for PSPO™ certification to receive access to the training and assessment.

PSPO™ Certification Eligibility

The eligibility criteria for PSPO™ certification suggests that basic knowledge of Scrum in a real-world context is helpful, though not mandatory. The one-day Agile and Scrum foundation training serves as a good primer. It is specifically for those, who are interested in handling the business side of a product in Scrum organizations.

However, attending a training workshop is not a mandatory requirement to become PSPO™ certified. You can self-study and attempt the assessment to gain the PSPO™ certification.

Here are the 3 easy steps to become a Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO™):

  • Attend 16 hours of online PSPO™ training with your Professional Scrum trainer® (PST®). While attending a course is not mandatory, it is recommended as it will help you brush up on your Scrum knowledge.
  • Attend the PSPO™ exam online and score 85% in the 1-hour time limit.
  • Congrats! You have earned your PSPO™ certification with lifetime validity.

Good Trainer. We went through various examples and scenarios. Good training material was provided. All these helped pass the assessment. We could have had a little more time in course training.

Very interactive session with facilities to collaborate even during the virtual session. Insightful as it also dealt with what are and aren't the responsibilities of a product owner and promoted PO-like thinking.

The PSPO training was organized very well and our instructor Sanjay Saini helped us understand the concepts pretty good during the 2 days workshop. It was engaging and interactive. I recommend Knowledge Hut for PSPO training.
