Improving consistency of Scrum training, Merapar now offers premium training from the Scrum.org Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) community.

Eindhoven, NL, September 2022 – Merapar, an alfa1 partner and innovator in cloud-native solutions, has today announced that it has joined the Scrum.org Professional Training Network (PTN). The network enables Merapar to leverage the Scrum.org premium brand, courses and Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) community.

To become a recognized member of the Scrum.org PTN program, Merapar surpassed strict requirements set by Scrum.org. It has shown its dedication to Scrum.org training through continued use of PSTs and has certified that it will adhere to the code of conduct which Scrum.org has put in place to ensure that students are receiving only the highest quality training experience.

“Merapar is committed to professionalism in our approach not only with our clients, but with our employees too. Being a part of the Scrum.Org PTN reflects our commitment to Professional Scrum, and the benefits and quality this brings to our organisation and those we work with. When everyone is speaking the same language and playing the same game, with the boundaries of Professional Scrum in place - we grow our skills more effectively, and achieve so much more together,” said Andrew Spence, Director of Agility and Transformation, Merapar.

By offering Scrum.org courses, Merapar will now be able to provide training to clients, including preparing participants for the industry-recognised Professional Scrum certification. Each Scrum.org course includes one attempt at the assessment, and those who score 85% or better pass and receive certification.

“Inconsistent teaching of the Scrum Framework often causes Scrum teams to struggle with the concepts as they learn from different teachers or companies,” said Dave West, CEO, Scrum.org. “By becoming a member of the PTN, Merapar has proven that they are providing only the highest quality, most consistent Scrum training.”
