Take your Agile career to the next level

Introducing Your Agile Trainer

I’m Tom, I’m based in Melbourne, Australia, and as the founder of Agile Advantage, I’ll be the one delivering your online training.

As an Agile expert holding 31 SAFe, Scrum, Atlassian, and cloud computing certifications, I continue to work as an Agile Coach and Scrum Master alongside my role as an Agile trainer.

But beyond my work and qualifications, I’m also a stand-up guy who genuinely loves his job and has been where you are right now.

When You’re SAFe And Scrum Alliance Certified...

You Have A Better Chance Of Being Short-Listed For The Best Jobs

Almost every big company that posts a job description for an Agile job requires a SAFe or Scrum Alliance certification as part of their selection criteria.

In this scenario, a certification will stop you from falling at the first hurdle and getting automatically rejected by Applicant Tracking Systems when you apply for Agile jobs online.

Hiring managers at top companies don’t want to take the risk of hiring someone who isn’t certified (I know, because I’ve worked with them). Because if you don’t perform your job well, they’re the ones who end up looking bad.

Industry certifications prove you have the skills they need, and give more confidence to hiring managers who are under pressure to hire the best, qualified person for the job.

What’s more, with more than 200 candidates typically applying for the same Agile job, requiring a certification makes the short-listing process easier (as well as less risky) for the hiring manager.

You Can Earn More Money

If you’re an Agile Coach, Scrum Master, or Product Owner (or aspire to be one in the future), you probably won’t be surprised to learn that in all regions of the world, certified professionals earn more than non-certified staff - and the statistics support this.

In 2019, IT professionals who gained new certifications received an average pay rise of AUD $17,810 (Global Knowledge IT Skills and Salary Report).

You Become More Valuable To Your Company And More In Demand

52% of those surveyed for the Global Knowledge IT Skills and Salary Report said their expertise was more in demand after they’d achieved a new certification.

What’s more, the 2020 State of Agile Report showed that Scrum is the most in-demand framework with 75% market share (it’s 11x more popular than Kanban) and that SAFe is the most in-demand scaling framework with 35% market share (it’s 9x and 12x more popular than LeSS and Nexus, respectively).

More organisations are rapidly adopting the SAFe and Scrum frameworks and need to hire Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, and Product Owners with industry-recognised certifications. So having one makes you more valuable to your current employer and to the companies you want to work for.

Certified SAFe Scrum Master 5.0

Applying the Scrum Master role within a SAFe enterprise

During this 2-day online course, attendees gain an understanding of the role of a Scrum Master in a SAFe enterprise. Unlike traditional Scrum Master training that focuses on the fundamentals of team-level Scrum, the SAFe Scrum Master course explores the role of the Scrum Master in the context of the entire enterprise, and prepares attendees to successfully plan and execute the Program Increment, the primary enabler of alignment throughout all levels of a SAFe organisation. This includes learning the key components of Agile at scale, how Scrum is facilitated throughout the enterprise, and how to execute Iteration Planning.

Attendees discover how to build high-performing Agile teams by becoming a servant leader and coach, and how to coach those teams to deliver the maximum business value at scale. SAFe Scrum Master certification signifies that people are prepared to perform the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe environment, increasing their value to teams and organisations that are implementing SAFe.

Attending the class prepares individuals to take the exam and become a Certified SAFe Scrum Master.

Agile Advantage Certification Courses:
The Best SAFe And Scrum Alliance Training At The Best Price

Most SAFe and Scrum Alliance certifications are available at around the same price point. So if you’re paying the same price regardless of who delivers your training, you might as well choose the best training provider, who offers you:

The most qualified and knowledgeable Agile trainer who can provide unique, valuable insights into SAFe, Scrum, and Atlassian tools, and how you can use them together to unlock massive value through synergies and efficiencies.

A platform to support you and help you reach your goals post-certification. You can benefit from all my knowledge and experiences (and the collective knowledge and experiences of other members of the private LinkedIn group).

If you’re like me, you might have already been on courses where the trainer only cared about delivering the bare essentials in exchange for your course fee, and batted away questions they didn’t know the answers to.

On an Agile Advantage course, no question will be left unanswered.

I'll use my expert knowledge and experience to answer any questions you may have about the course content or any other Agile topics (and if I don’t know the answer, I’ll guide you to the best resource).

After completing your training with Agile Advantage...

• You’ll feel prepared for your SAFe or Scrum Alliance certification exam - the industry gold standard for Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, and Product Owners

• You’ll be supported by me and your peers as you continue on your career journey

BONUS: Access to a private LinkedIn group for ongoing support.

Unlike many other training providers, I won’t just smile and usher you out the door once you’ve got your certification. I know you might still have questions and find it valuable to have ongoing support.

The private LinkedIn group is a space where members of the Agile Advantage community can network, learn from me and others, and find answers to questions.

You can use the group as an additional resource as you prepare for your exam, and later on as you put your new skills into practice and look for jobs at the companies you want to work for.

You can use the private LinkedIn group to:

- Ask questions about the exam

- Seek career advice

- Share your knowledge by answering questions

- Gain new insights and learn how others interpret the same scenarios differently

- Review job ads for Agile Coach, Scrum Master, and Product Owner roles (which we’ll post in the group)

- Network with other members of the community

- Ask for and give endorsements, recommendations, and introductions to hiring managers
