Platinum Edge Opens Registration for Free/Discounted Veterans Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) Class

November 13, 2018

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 12, 2018--Platinum Edge, LLC is excited to celebrate Veterans Day by announcing the company’s annual Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) class for veterans – a heavily discounted two-day certification course aimed at improving project management skills and making veterans more competitive in the job market. The class will take place at UC Irvine on December 20-21, 2018.

A veteran-owned business, Platinum Edge has been teaching CSM, Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO), and other agile project management and product development classes to military branches for the past several years, as well as training and coaching major defense and energy contractors along with local, state, and federal government agencies.

The CSM class will be offered to veterans for $99 (for this class only) and will be free for unemployed veterans (with an EDD statement). The training provides an in-depth understanding of the scrum team-based approach to iterative development, which is being used throughout the world by organizations from small to large, both in the public and private sector.

This highly interactive scrum master certification course trains participants in the full range of scrum topics, from basic theory to organizational implementation, including practical applications, roles, and scaling.

The class will be taught by the Founder of Platinum Edge, Mark C. Layton, who spent 11 years as a Cryptographic Specialist for the United States Air Force, where he earned both Commendation and Achievement medals for his accomplishments.

To help make this event possible, Platinum Edge recognizes the generous donations of Scrum Alliance providing free registration and UC Irvine providing the venue.

Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) Training with Mark Layton Dates: December 20-21, 2018 Hours: 8:00am-5pm each day Location: University of California, Irvine
