Agile Coaching Skills – Certified Facilitator – ACS-CF  Training with Michigan Technology Services

Michigan Technology Services offers instructor-led Agile Coaching Skills – Certified Facilitator (ACS-CF) training, as well as other Agile and Scrum courses, through a partnership with a Scrum Alliance authorized Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) and Path to CSP educator with extensive Agile and Scrum experience.

In a pre-Covid world our training would take place at our location in the Farmington Hills/Novi area, 20 miles outside of Detroit, or at your location anywhere around the world. Our Agile workshops and Agile coaching sessions are now offered both online/virtually, reducing your need to travel, as well as in-person.

Note that while many CST’s fly into metro Detroit to deliver a class, and then leave, we live here and support the local Agile community.   We continue to sponsor regional Agile conferences and local Agile and Scrum meetups. We have strong ties to Agile companies in the metro Detroit area.  We have successfully run numerous advanced Agile workshops before for a number of Advanced Certified ScrumMasters and Product Owners.
