The Next Iteration of Agile Education: Same Trusted Training, New Name

The Agile Education Program powered by Scrum Inc.™ introduces The International Registry of Agile Professionals™ and key changes to its suite of Scrum and Agile training credentials.

Introducing “Registered”

Agile Education credentials, stand strong in the market. Our credentials communicate clearly to potential employers, coworkers, and network connections the potential to deliver better business outcomes.

As of October 1st, 2021, all AEP credential names will be featured under the “Registered Scrum” and “Registered Agile” umbrella.

Introducing Registered Scrum represents a metaphor for our student journey and differentiates our graduates in the job market. Like a registered nurse who has graduated from a nursing program and met the requirements outlined by their licensing body, graduates of our program have successfully completed the Agile Education curriculum and become active members of the agile community. Our students must actively participate in an instructor-led or on-demand course and demonstrate knowledge through a course completion exam. Annually, students must register their commitment to the learning objectives through a renewal exam.

Agile Education Students Are Ready to Deliver

AEP graduates stand out. As registered members, our students have continuously proven to be committed to agility through their active engagement with the Agile community. The International Registry of Agile Professionals provides organizations and hiring managers with a database of professionals that have gone beyond certification.

Registered graduates have the knowledge, confidence, and tools to jump into and have an impact within an agile environment on day one. The International Registry of Agile Professionals is a living record of those who have registered their intent and commitment to the mission of leaving a lasting, positive impact on the world.

Staying True to Our Mission

From the Source: Endorsed by the Co-Creator of Scrum and Signatory of the Agile Manifesto

Dr. Jeff Sutherland is the co-creator of Scrum, inventor of Scrum@Scale, and signatory of the Agile Manifesto. He founded the Agile Education Program to deliver his vision of teaching the tested techniques that deliver twice the work in half the time.

AEP provides individuals and organizations with a clear path to implementing Scrum in a way that delivers results. Graduates of the Agile Education Program are the only Scrum credential holders endorsed by Sutherland.

Revolutionizing Agile Education: A Different Kind of Scrum Training Experience

All Agile Education Program courses draw directly from Jeff and Scrum Inc.’s 20+ years of experience successfully delivering twice the value and impact at half the cost in organizations and industries across the globe.

Students and trainers of the Agile Education Program are up-to-date with the latest insights from Agile implementations across the globe. We move beyond theory to practical application with key learnings from successful real-world implementations of Scrum and Scrum@Scale. Our Registered Scrum Trainers and Registered Scrum@Scale Trainers are experts with experience driving successful implementations.

Believe in the Power of Better

According to the latest State of Agile report, “​​The two most urgent reasons for adopting Agile are the speed and flexibility required by working environments that continue to be both unpredictable and volatile. These are closely followed by a continued need to focus on alignment across teams1.”

Over the last year, growth in Agile adoption doubled worldwide. Yet, we know that 47% of agile implementations fail, and of those failures, 67% are terminal2. Every year, organizations and enterprises across the globe dedicate time, resources, and talent toward adopting agility. Organizations and individuals need a better solution to agile implementation.

The Agile Education curriculum is designed to address the four Mega-Issues plaguing organizations across the globe and enabling agile professionals to deliver better business outcomes. Only the Agile Education curriculum provides learners with lean principles, techniques for developing hyper-productive teams, and strategies for achieving linear scalability when scaling Agile across an organization or division.

The Agile Education Program powered by Scrum Inc. is committed to providing a meaningful learning experience to every student. Believe in the possibility of a better world of work with AEP.
