Do I get textbooks and course materials as part of my CSPO course?

Yes, you do.

On the in-person courses, you will receive an Agile Centre workbook that contains all the curriculum for the Certified Scrum Product Owner course. For the online courses, you will receive a link where you can download the course material in a PDF format.

On the online courses, you will also receive a link to the practical workspaces that were used as part of the course delivery.

Things like Mural workspaces, for example, where you will be able to access all the practical exercises that formed part of the CSPO course.

Those practical elements are conducted on the walls of the classroom using post-it notes for the in-person CSPO course so you would be encouraged to take photos of the practical exercises using your phone for later reference.

We don’t provide textbooks, but we do provide a recommended reading list for product owners.

There are a number of great books we’ve read over the years, some scrum specific and others a little broader such as ‘start with why’ by Simon Sinek, and we’ve compiled a list of great books for you to devour on your path to mastery.

We also have a recommended reading list and book review section on our website so feel free to peruse that section for more information around what we would recommend you invest your time and money in.

At the end of the course, you will also receive the course presentation that is used by your Certified Scrum Trainer.

It contains all the video, snapshots and course material that we think you will find valuable in your journey moving forward.

So, you receive everything you need on the CSPO course and do not need to purchase anything additional, other than the recommended reading list if you feel that is a great fit for you.

Much of your learning is going to come within the product owner role, and you will find that over the course of a year, you are going to pick up a great deal of knowledge and insight working in the role itself.

After a year, we would recommend that you invest in the Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner course to broaden your knowledge and develop your product owner skillset.
