There is no exam required to earn this certification.
Participants of this course will have to complete a short “priming” test to help them identify their LeSS blind spots, for example, regarding the role of Scrum Master in relation to multiple cross-functional self-managing teams or how continuous improvement takes place within the Scrum framework.
With the blind spots identified, we create a safe space in our classes to share them, explore them and ensure they are not blind spots by the time you leave.
Full attendance of the Certified LeSS Practitioner (CLP) course is required to be eligible for certification.
