    In this 2-day ScrumMaster Certification course, we will cover the fundamental principles of Scrum, qualifying you as a Certified ScrumMaster. 

    In this intensive and highly interactive workshop, you will get the opportunity to learn to deal with the obstacles that confront Scrum teams. We will add practice to theory through a variety of exercises and take-aways to use with co-workers. 

    Upon successful completion of the course, each participant is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year Scrum Alliance membership, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information is available.

    More importantly, upon completion of this workshop, you'll leave with an understanding, gained through hands-on team practice and exercises, to share your experience with your colleagues, help your teams to execute Scrum efficiently and productively and to put Scrum in practice and succeed with it. 

    PMI members can claim up to 14 PDU's upon competion of this course.

    All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
