SAFe® Scrum Master (SSM)

SAFe® Scrum Master (SSM)

Learn how the Scrum Master should facilitate Scaled Agile processes in the enterprise.


Scrum is often at the heart of agile implementations due to its empirical nature and the Scrum Master is key to driving this empiricism. Scrum Masters can make all the difference when it comes to building and coaching an effective, high performing Agile team. Modern day challenges of working in larger teams of agile teams demand even more from Scrum Masters than ever before. It is for this reason that more depth and understanding is needed for the role of a Scrum Master. This course provides this more than other popular Scrum Master certifications and can give you an edge when seeking Scrum Master positions.

With this recognition, working in a scaled agile environment can be much more demanding than with a single traditional Scrum team; a deep knowledge of scaled agile techniques and of SAFe in particular, is essential when it comes to producing optimal results for the business.

To this end, we are the first European based company to offer the SAFe® 4.0 Scrum Master, complete with SAFe Scrum Master (SSM) certification.

This is a much more in depth and practical training course than other popular Scrum Master training courses and you will take more practical tools and techniques away with you as well as the underlying values and principles that Scrum is built on.

With this qualification, you will be able to:

  • Perform the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe or a scaled agile environment, one which for example has many agile teams working on the same value stream or product
  • Build high performing Agile teams by becoming a servant leader and coach
  • Coach those teams to deliver the maximum business value
  • Understand how Scrum is facilitated throughout the organisation
  • Facilitate Program Increment (PI) planning and iteration / sprint execution
  • Implement team Kanban to maximize flow and surface your bottlenecks
  • Facilitate and encourage Agile technical practices
  • Coach your Agile team[s] for maximum business value results
  • Play a critical role in planning, executing, and relentlessly improving product delivery
  • Improve the flow of value using Kanban and engineering practices

This course also qualifies as a prerequisite for our popular SAFe 4.0 Advanced Scrum Master, which requires SAFe Scrum Master (SSM), a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) or a Professional Scrum Master (PSM) certification to attend. When applying for Scrum Master roles, this course will count as an equivalent to a CSM or a PSM qualification.

Who is this course suitable for?

The SAFe® Scrum Master Course is intended for people new to the role of the Scrum Master or people wanting to better understand the role and how it fits in a SAFe or scaled agile context. Attendees typically include;

  • New or existing Scrum Masters (who have undergone traditional Scrum Master training)
  • Team Leads and anyone who is on their Scrum Master journey in a larger, SAFe or scaled agile context
  • Release Train Engineers
