The Braintrust Consulting Group, the Southeast’s leading provider of Agile and Traditional Project Management training and coaching, has been officially recognized by the Scrum Alliance as a Registered Education Provider.

Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) August 6, 2010 – In an effort to demonstrate their commitment to providing the best Agile training in the Southeast, The Braintrust Consulting Group recently sought to become a Scrum Alliance (SA) Registered Education Provider (REP).

According to the SA Program Manager, Rod Claar “It’s not easy to become a REP. Organizations must demonstrate excellence in courseware, trainers, and continuous improvement in order to be accepted. We spend a good deal of time reviewing each and every organization, course, and trainer. Being named a Scrum Alliance REP is quite an honor!”

When asked why his company pursued the SA REP status, President Brian Rabon responded “The SA is the world’s premier association promoting Agile, having their endorsement means that that our courses are of the highest quality and therefore we are poised to successfully compete in the global marketplace.” Mike Cohn, SA Board Member and renowned author noted “The REP program is the perfect way for organizations to promote their Scrum education offerings. REP organizations gain an affiliation with the Scrum Alliance and can draw on those resources to bring their courses to the attention of a much wider audience.”

With their SA REP status Braintrust is now able to offer their Agile Project Management course as official curriculum for the Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) designation.
