This two-day ScrumMaster certification course taught by Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainers provides everything you need to get started with Scrum. One of the largest and fastest-growing Agile project management frameworks, Scrum is a simple software management technique that has a small set of interrelated practices and rules, is not overly prescriptive and is able to produce productivity gains for software development teams almost immediately.
This course shares time-tested practices for managing product backlogs, planning your releases and iterations (Sprints) and tracking and reporting progress. You'll learn how to plan and run Sprint Planning Meetings, daily Scrum Meetings, Sprint Reviews, Sprint Retrospectives and more!
Currently, an individual is certified when he or she has attended, participated in, and completed a Certified ScrumMaster course.
Effective October 1st, 2009, all CSMs will be required to complete a Certified ScrumMaster course and pass a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) online certification exam to maintain certification. Certifications will be valid for two years from the date when the CSM passes his or her certification exam. If an individual takes a CSM course after September 30th, 2009, he or she will have ninety days after the course date to pass the certification exam.

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.
