    Our students love the training
    97% of our students say "the GoodAgile CSM class was worth the time and money - even ignoring the value of the certification". And 98% said they were likely to recommend it to a friend or colleague. We get comments like this one from Ashok Rai in Bangalore all the time: "This was the best training I have ever attended. Pete, you rock!". The content includes best practices and advice for using Scrum with multi-location / distributed projects, project estimation and delivery-date planning and tracking in Scrum, fixed-price / fixed-date projects in Scrum, Scrum tools, and scaling Scrum for large projects or organizations.

    Our students get top scores on the CSM exam
    In our CSM class, you get a hands-on, experience-based understanding of Scrum and how to be successful using it. As part of this, you get a very strong knowledge of the principles and practices of Scrum. GoodAgile's CSM graduates scored an average of 94% on the CSM exam (2009-2011), and many get perfect scores!

    You get full online access to class materials + exercises + useful resources... forever!
    Unlike many classes, we provide full electronic access to the course materials, which you can use to train your colleagues.

    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.
