What is this course?
Live Online Training
To overcome the challenges currently associated with attending in-person training, agil8 have adapted the delivery of this course into a live online training format with an added focus on how to work using agile with remote team members.
Utilising live video, alongside online collaboration tools, we’re able to replicate the interactive nature of our face-to-face training within a virtual environment. As such, individuals can undertake this training from their home or any other remote location.
Online Delivery Method
The online Agile Coaching (ICP-ACC) course consists of 4 x 4 hour sessions. Please note that the start and finish times listed for each of the respective course dates refer to GMT time zone.
The ICAgile Certified Professional in Agile Coaching (ACC) course provides a deep dive into the world of agile coaching. The course is split into 4 unique half-day (4 hour) modules covering the core competencies of agile coaching that can be completed in any order.
We also complement this with our unique pre and post-course calls that focus on personal growth using the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel to guide your journey.
The course focuses on equipping you with new tools, techniques and skills to be the best agile coach / ScrumMaster you can be.
