Professional Scrum Product Owner™ (How to become) Certification Process 

A step-by-step process to earn a PSPO™ certification

As per Scrum.org, PSPO™ certification does not require mandatory attendance of the official PSPO™ course. Only attending and clearing the PSPO™ certification online assessment is sufficient in order to get this certification. Follow these steps to know how to become a Product Owner.

HOW TO BECOME A PSPO

The following is the step-by-step process to become a Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO™):

  • Enroll for the PSPO course at KnowledgeHut, a Professional Training Network member of Scrum.org.  
  • Take the 2-day online PSPO course delivered by Professional Scrum Trainers® (PSTs).
  • On successful completion of the course, Scrum.org will email you the password to take the exam.
  • Take the 1-hour online PSPO exam which comprises of 80 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs), Multiple Answer and True/False.
  • Score a minimum of 85% to pass the PSPO assessment, after completing the course.
  • Get the industry recognized "PSPO I" certification, along with a PSPO I logo.

If an individual doesn’t want to take the course, he/she can directly apply on the Scrum.org website. On registering, you will receive a personal password along with an Assessment key. You can then directly visit the link and take the exam.

Note*: PSPO I must be passed before attempting the PSPO II, which is tougher to crack than the PSPO I.

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.
