After visiting the recently released »Professional Scrum Product Owner Advanced« training two weeks ago, I used the included voucher for the »Professional Scrum Product Owner II« certification this very afternoon. As always, the training is not a precondition for the certification, and the questions asked are not directly linked to the training’s content. On the other hand, the training helped me to focus for two days on core Product Owner duties. Thus it helped me to get the certification anyway.
I passed in 59′ with a ratio of 89.8 % of correct answers. Since this certification level is completely new (the former II now became III), I’m currently one of just 78 certificate holders :) .
