Description of Course
The Team Science (TS-A1) advanced course provides an overview of team science and how the field of team science applies to the workplace. Participants will gain an understanding of evidence-based practices that apply to the team and small group settings in the workplace while learning different techniques for applying these lessons in the real-world.
The Team Science (TS-A1) advanced course introduces participants to the concepts that will be covered in the Team Science Mastery level courses. The Team Science Mastery courses include Teamwork Skills & Training (TS-M1), Taskwork & Estimation (TS-M2), Team Effectiveness (TS-M3), High-Performance Teams (TS-M4), and Designing Multiteam Systems (TS-M5).
Duration of Training
The Team Science (TS-A1) advanced course requires 16 hours of training and can be taken as a two-day in-person training session, an online live virtual class, or as an asynchronous self-paced online training using The Flow System’s learning management system (LMS). This course can be taught publicly or privately to any organization.
Participants must complete the training before receiving a code allowing them to take the Team Science (TS-A1) advanced level assessment for accreditation. The fee for the assessment is included in the course fee for training attendees.
Participants who attend the training will have two attempts at the Scrum the Team Science (TS-A1) advanced level assessment. Participants who wish to forgo the training and jump straight to the assessment may do so but must first buy a code and will only have one attempt as opposed to two for people taking the training. You can buy a code below by clicking Take Assessment.
