Some pre-work course work may be requested by your trainer, however there are no prerequisites for the course aside from those set by the Scrum Alliance. Completion of the Scrum Alliance Certified Product Owner Course and one year’s experience working in a Product Owner role or equivalent.
My CSPO certification has expired, do I need to re-sit the CSPO course and exam before I can complete the A-CSPO?
If you have an expired CSPO but wish to attend an A-CSPO course, it is not necessary to renew your CSPO certification. After successfully completing the A-CSPO course and registering 12 months of work experience with the Scrum Alliance, you will earn A-CSPO certification which will automatically renew the previously expired CSPO.For example, if your CSPO expired in 2017 and you gain certification as an A-CSPO in October 2020, both your CSPO and A-CSPO will be active until October 2022
Can I attend the A-CSPO course without the required work experience?
Yes. You can take the course and then work towards getting your required 1-year work experience. Once you have the experience you can update your profile in your Scrum Alliance members dashboard, and you will be awarded your A-CSPO certification.
Will there be regular breaks given the CSPO course is online?
Yes. We understand the online learning environment can be more challenging that in a classroom, so we have structured the training with regular breaks including a longer break for lunch to keep concentration and energy levels up.
