Silicon Valley Scrum
Apprentice Program


Get experience as a Scrum Master or a Product owner
through the Silicon Valley Scrum
Apprentice program.

Apprentices form Scrum teams to create products for not-for-profit organizations. They do this with support and coaching from Fred Fowler, a PSM III level Professional Scrum Master with almost 20 years of Scrum experience. He provides daily personalized coaching sessions from the time the Apprentices enter the program through the successful delivery of the products.

Applicants must be interviewed and accepted by Fred Fowler before they are enrolled. There is a monthly fee of $99.95 starting with enrollment and ending when the team’s product is delivered.

NEW: applicants may now pay a one-time flat fee of $299.95 instead of a monthly subscription fee of $99.95.

Just Announced: Scrum Master applicants may now pay a one-time flat fee of $499.95 to go through the program with Fred Fowler as the Product Owner.
