Scrum Master has 2 options in terms of training. DVT presents the official international Certified Scrum Master training course as well as SCRUM training (this one) which locally certified. Both are very valuable courses with the SCRUM training being more cost effective for teams due to it being locally certified.
SCRUM is still one of the most popular frameworks used in Agile today. Whereas most Agile courses (including PMI) focus on Agile and Agility, this course is specific to the SCRUM framework used in Agile.
The SCRUM course does not cover KANBAN. DVT does however combine SCRUM and KANBAN in a 3 day course that covers both. SCRUM and KANBAN can be combined in forming an Agile framework specific to your environment yet utilizing the best elements of two brilliant frameworks. Agile Coaching is a vital part in customizing an Agile framework to work for your unique environment and unique challenges.
The Scaled Agile Framework is a brilliant and detailed framework referred to when Agile is used in larger organizations. SAFe is a good framework to understand since it adds a few additional roles and ceremonies to KANBAN and SCRUM forming a framework that can scale for large teams and organizations. Should you be looking for answers to scaling an Agile implementation or Agile for larger cross functional teams, SAFe is a good course to consider.
The SCRUM framework also has many scaling options for instance by introducing SCRUM of SCRUM ceremonies or looking into due track SCRUM.
The core idea of Lean is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. All Agile Frameworks (including SCRUM and KANBAN) are based on the Lean principle with regards to value driven focus and minimizing any waste. In actual fact Lean is more focused on the mindset and thinking which overlaps brilliantly with regards to any Agile framework as both is based on the same principles and values.
Project Managers can certainly benefit from Agile training as well as training in the most popular frameworks, SCRUM and KANBAN. Project Managers can specifically benefit from the mindset changes required to excel in Agile.
Requirements gathering are facilitated in a different manner and the focus is shifted to the team with a customer value driven. We would recommend the follow courses in sequence as a general path to get Agile knowledge:
