  1. 🇬🇧 Please note, that the class language in all cases is English unless otherwise stated.
  2. All classes offered at the Agile Camp Berlin can be booked separately from the attendance of the Agile Camp Berlin 2020 with the respective trainer. Please note that this also implies that the attendance of a workshop does not include a ticket for the Agile Camp Berlin 2020.

  4. The respective trainers provide all workshops. The Berlin Product People GmbH as the organizer of the Agile Camp Berlin 2020, is not involved in the organization of any workshops; any contract is between the workshop attendee and the respective trainer.
  5. Lastly, please also note that the Professional Scrum Master Training PSM I is a 2-day class and hence will take place on April 7-8, 2020; that is a week earlier than the one-day classes.
