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.

I had attended the PSPO training by KnowledgeHut. The trainer was Sumeet Madan and the training was really helpful as it was practical-based. The training was well-organized and completed well on time. Sumeet Madan was a good trainer and was always available even after the training to clarify our doubts
