Who is this Scaled Agile Training Course designed for?

Those who wish to sit the examination, it is recommended that they:

  • Agile Release Train team members
  • Anybody who applies Lean and Agile on a large scale


There are no formal prerequisites, however, delegates will thrive if they are well acquainted with Scrum, Kanban, and/or XP. 

Certified SAFe® Practitioner for Teams Training Overview

This fully accredited 2-day Scaled Agile Framework Practitioner Certification 5.1 (SAFe®) course uses the most current Lean-Agile methodology, SAFe® (5.1) and is aimed at teams that are a part of an Agile Release Train (ART) and focuses on increasing effectivity when working with other teams and the integration of Scrum, XP, and Kanban in an Agile focused environment. Furthermore, candidates can expect to develop and enhance a skill set that encompasses planning and executing PIs, planning, and executing iterations, breaking requirements into stories, and problem-solving whilst continually identifying areas for improvement.

For organisational success, rapid adaptation to the continually evolving technical and economic environment is required. Failure to do so will always result in the demise of companies that are not able to keep up. However, with a SAFe® Practitioner certification, you are certain to comfortably manoeuvre your way around any issues that may arise during the development or delivery of software.


Agile Release Trains are a core element to any SAFe® environment. An ART is a multiple-disciplinary, long-life team that works with stakeholders to deliver effective solutions, within a PI (Program Increment) timeframe. They are often self-organising and are composed of 50-125 people. This official SAFe® course will provide you with the skills to beneficially contribute to an ART and collaborate with other teams. You will also gain a further understanding of using Scrum, Kanban, and XP in your role.
