    Become a Certified ScrumMaster

    Pass your CSM test with two days of engaging training

    Learn the secrets of Scrum from Adam Weisbart, one of only 140 accredited ScrumMaster trainers worldwide. His high-demand, compelling class fully prepares you to pass the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) test. You'll learn using the same interactive Agile techniques that form the foundation of Scrum — then receive personalized follow up and ongoing support to keep your kung fu potent.

    Scrum helps thousands of organizations to energize their development processes. As a CSM, you'll be an integral part of your company's success, joining the cadre of those leading the vanguard.

    Adam's two-day interactive workshop teaches the basics of Scrum, provides you with experience on an actual Scrum team, and primes you to become a Certified ScrumMaster.


    What distinguishes Adam's CSM class?

    • No lectures, no PowerPoint, no droning drool-inducing doldrums
      This certification training is the antithesis of traffic school. Instead you'll experience what it's like to be Agile through a series of comfortably paced engaging activities.
       
    • Pass your CSM test on your first try
      Over 99% of Adam's students pass their CSM test right out of the gate. That's because this workshop ends with a practice exam plus additional free coaching for those who want extra encouragement.
       
    • Join a supportive community of Agile leaders
      Adam Weisbart's CSM workshop is only the beginning. All course graduates receive copies of Adam's Scrum Kickoff Planner, access to a regular series of open Q&A conference calls, and — for real — Adam's personal telephone number. If you run into a Scrum situation that requires reinforcements, Adam is only a text away.
       
    • All that and 14 PMI Professional Development Units (PDUs)
      As part of your course, you'll receive a two-year Scrum Alliance Membership. When you pass your CSM test — and you will — you'll also receive 14 PDUs from the Project Management Institute (PMI).


     

    Adam Weisbart is accredited by the Scrum Alliance to certify students as ScrumMasters. He regularly speaks at Agile Conferences around the world. His original tools, videos, activities, and training materials are used by Certified Scrum Trainers to teach Scrum internationally.

    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.

    Notes

    Frequently Answered Questions:

    Do I need to know anything about Scrum before I attend class?

    No prior knowledge of Scrum is required and beginners are welcome. Adam has helped hundreds of people get their start with Scrum.

    What is the class format like?

    Adam Weisbart uses Scrum to teach Scrum, combining your training with practical experience with the framework.

    The course is split into two focused work periods — called ‘sprints’ — each lasting a day. Each sprint has its own backlog (a detailed description of required accomplishments) and you’ll be able to track progress towards your certification using burndown charts.

    Learning the language of Scrum is part of the course, so don’t worry if that sounds jargon heavy.

    Adam’s course maintains a comfortable, sustainable pace as required by Scrum. Each sprint includes at least two mini-breaks (at around 10:30am and 2:30pm) and a longer lunch break (around noon).

    Any extra encouragement for the test-phobic?

    Adam hates taking tests, too. Understanding your trepidation, he’ll do everything he can to make the Scrum Alliance test as painless as possible. To start, you’ll get to take a full practice exam at the end of day two. If that test proves challenging for you, Adam will make himself available to answer your questions by phone, Skype, or email.

    99% of Adam’s students pass the CSM test on their first try because they’re prepared. You’ll be prepared, too.

    Is food included?

    Yes. And it is delicious. We provide a light breakfast, snacks, and a full lunch.

    We will do our best to take dietary requests into consideration or you are always welcome to bring in your own food.

    Does Adam teach courses on-site for companies and organizations?

    Most definitely. If you’ve got several participants who want to earn their CSM, Adam can tailor a course to meet your needs and schedule time to work with you at the location of your choosing. Just get in touch.
