Scrum Master training provides an applied understanding of the Scrum process and helps participants begin to develop the tools, insights, and skills requried to apply Scrum on their projects and across their organizations.
The course will typically run from 8:30am-5:10pm each day. A continental breakfast, breaks and lunch will be provided.
Following the course, each participant is enrolled as a Certified ScrumMaster, which includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.
PMPs: You can receive 15 Professional Development Units (PDUs) for this course.
After the Scrum Training Workshop:
You'll receive all the information you need to get registered with the Scrum Alliance (the non-profit organization that issues the certification) and then take an online assessment. Don't worry about scoring 100% -- currently it is not a pass or fail thing. Based on the aggregate numbers from my prior attendees, this should not be something hard to finish.
Once you take the assessment with the Scrum Alliance online, you'll have a two year membership with the Scrum Alliance and you'll be a Certified ScrumMaster. The initial membership fee is ($50.00) is included in the cost of your workshop attendance, and we'll take care of processing all that with the Scrum Alliance for you.
If you need PDU's for the PMI or other continuing education credits, we'll work with you to make sure you get them applied appropriately (usually good for 15 PDUs).
Over time, we will keep in touch. I'll give you advice along the way and you'll have access to me after the training is completed. We want you to succeed.
If you have any questions about this, please contact me.
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.
