We’re Launching Further Scrum.org Professional Scrum Certifications

Scrum.org-Logo_no_tagline_transparent-2.pngLast year we told you about the addition of Professional Scrum Master courses to our training portfolio, following the news Andy Hiles had become a licensed Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) with Scrum.org. 


Since then we are pleased to let you know that Radtac has successfully joined Scrum.org as a Professional Training Network (PTN). PTN status demonstrates our ability to deliver Professional Scrum training and abide by the high quality standards of Scrum.org.

To show our commitment to improving the profession of software delivery in part by providing Scrum.org training, we have decided to include two new Scrum.org courses within our training portfolio for 2018: Professional Scrum Foundations and Scaled Professional Scrum.

The Professional Scrum Foundations and Scaled Professional Scrum certifications will join the Professional Scrum Master available either as an on-site course at a venue of your choice, or via our public training schedule. From February 2018 our aim is to provide one course per month at regional centres throughout the UK.

You can view available dates on our website. Don’t miss out on the early bird discount on all Scrum.org courses when you register and pay at least one month in advance of the course!
