SPCT Certification

The SAFe® Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT) certification is the highest level of certification provided by Scaled Agile. The SPCT program recognizes individuals who demonstrate superior knowledge, competency, and in-depth field experience in adopting Agile across an enterprise with the Scaled Agile Framework®. SPCTs become the leading change agents in an organization’s Lean-Agile transformation and implementation. What’s more, SPCTs have a proven track record as expert trainers. They are the only ones authorized to train aspiring SAFe® Program Consultants (SPCs).

Only Scaled Agile Gold Partners or Enterprises with a SAFe Learner Subscription of 500+ may nominate candidates for the SPCT Program. If you believe that you are qualified to be an SPCT, your employer must nominate you by emailing spct@scaledagile.com
