For this course, it is important also to have first experience in test autmation. Just as a reminder from the AU-CPAT requirements, it is highly recommended that you also hold the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) as this course will not cover the fundamentals and terminology of Testing. Other recommendations are another Agile or Scrum certificate like PSM or CSM or ASF or at least reading through the Scrum guide. If you do not hold any of the certifications mentioned above, you may still join the course; however, to get the most out of the experience you should have at least read through the above-mentioned syllabi and taken note of the important relevant terms.
