Community News SAFe Resources

role-based-curruculumWhile SAFe 4.0 has been making its way into enterprises, the Scaled Agile team has been busy working on advancing our training and certification content and improving the learning architecture in our SAFe 4.0 courseware.

Fully updated to reflect the modular and scalable features of SAFe 4.0, the new courses are designed to help enterprises better organize around value delivery, develop systems that include hardware and software, and improve development, coordination, and delivery of large systems. The 4.0 courses include:

  • Leading SAFe 4.0, with SAFe Agilist (SA) Certification
  • Implementing SAFe 4.0 with SAFe Program Consultant (SPC4) certification
  • SAFe 4.0 for Teams, with SAFe Practitioner (SP) Certification

If you’re engaged with an enterprise that is upgrading to SAFe 4.0, these courses will support that transition, and help each individual understand how to maximize the value of their role within a SAFe organization. The result is greater alignment, visibility, improved performance throughout the enterprise, and ultimately better outcomes for the business.

Stay SAFe!

    Is the Leading Safe video equivalent content to the facilitated courses?

    Can you take Safe Agilist exam to get certification by only doing the online video course?

    When will v4.0 be released?

    Thanks for your post, Dean! Formal two day education is a little expensive for me at the moment. Is there a book / guide I can purchase and read, something similar to PMBOK to get introduced to SAFe?

      Hi Dmytro:

      Currently, the best option given your financial constraints it to take a Leading SAFe LiveLessons course. Feature and pricing for the course can be found here:

      We are presently working on releasing a 4.0 version of the Live Lessons online courseware and it’s very price effective. You can also listen to many free presentations on our youtube channel at no charge ( Another good source of learning is reading the guidance articles on and watch a standard set of presentations here:

      More to come in April. Stay tuned….

    I thought the role-based curriculum would be PM/PO training and the ESM class….
