SAFe® Scrum Master
with SSM Certification

Course overview

Applying the Scrum Master role within a SAFe® enterprise with SAFe® 5 Scrum Master Certification

Build your skills as a high-performing team member of an Agile Release Train (ART) and prepare to support the facilitation of team and program events when you become a SAFe® 5 Scrum Master (SSM). In this two-day course, you’ll gain an understanding of the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe enterprise. Unlike traditional Scrum Master training that focuses on the fundamentals of team level Scrum, the SAFe Scrum Master course explores the role of the Scrum Master in the context of the entire enterprise, and prepares you to successfully plan and execute the Program Increment (PI), the primary enabler of alignment throughout all levels of a SAFe organisation. The SSM certification signifies that you are prepared to perform the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe environment, increasing your value to teams and organisations that are implementing SAFe.

Attending this class prepares you to take the exam and become a certified SAFe® 5 Scrum Master.

What our customers say


Great Course - Highly Recommend

Great course, well structured, presented and organised from start to finish. Excellent support pre the course and for the exam. Highly recommend.

This provides a great overview of SAFe, although you may cover some ground you are already familiar with for example with Agile elements, there is far more content that really helps to provide the context of how agile type delivery can work within a complex hierarchy – and it is important to view this in context of the whole picture. I found the Portfolio elements incredibly valuable and intend to explore further.

Thanks to the team – you did a great job.

Great team that deliver on what they say....

I have worked with Leantree on a number of engagements. The quality of the resources always show great knowledge in the Lean Agile SAFe space, but what differentiates them is their ability to clearly understand the clients needs and to work alongside them in delivering rather than simply telling them what needs to be done. They put their words into actions. Look forward to continuing our partnership in the future…

Thank you

I’m just wanted to say a big thank you. I passed my scrum exam which is largely down to your awesome coaching so I wanted to send you a small note to thank you.  You taught me the ways of scrum, so I thought I should let you know 🙂

Leading SAFe - Excellent Course

“Leading SAFe” is an excellent course delivered by knowledgeable and enthusiastic trainers, it provides a great introduction to SAFe. The course was delivered remotely over 2 days, with an individual digital workbook and shared team planning simulations. The frequent breaks built in really helped keep energy levels up.

The overall organisation was excellent with clear instructions and a pre-course session to introduce you to the training portal.

I would recommend this course to anyone that is looking to promote SAFe, join an organisation that has practices SAFe or just wants to know what it is.

At the end of the course I sat my certification exam and passed!

Lean Tree Training - I Passed my exam first time

I selected Lean Tree and completed the Leading Safe course which leads to the Safe 5 Agilist certification. The course was very well constructed, highlighting key concepts and potential areas for the examination. The course was presented via video conferencing and the “10 minute break every hour” format really works. I passed my exam first time following the Lean Tree course, so I can recommend Lean Tree for training.
