    Certified ScrumMaster

    Certified ScrumMaster Training

    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.



    When you’re ready to learn the fundamentals of agile and Scrum, choose a BigVisible Certified ScrumMaster course. Our two-day, hands-on workshop is filled with practical advice and time-tested techniques designed to give students the foundation they need to succeed with Scrum. Our Certified Scrum Trainers are coaches first, which means that long after your course is over, we have the experience and expertise to provide ongoing support and assist you in implementing what you've learned.

    As one of the largest and fastest-growing agile frameworks, Scrum is a simple, yet powerful way to boost team productivity, elevate quality, and accelerate project delivery. Our CSM course offers a detailed examination of the Scrum project lifecycle and the ScrumMaster role, going beyond the basic definitions to focus on how to achieve success as a ScrumMaster and with Scrum. Each person will leave the class with practical, applicable changes and improvements they can apply to their own projects and teams. Course delivery is varied for optimal learning, with activities ranging from case study analyses and in-depth lectures to hands-on exercises and interactive games.

    Why a BigVisible Course?

    BigVisible focuses on one thing: enabling organizational agility. As coaches, we understand the challenges organizations face at all phases of their agile implementations: from team-level execution and delivery, to higher-level strategy, governance, and leadership. We know that for an organization to achieve agility, people at all levels must understand agile principles and be educated about agile processes like Scrum.

    Our foundational training courses are firmly rooted in the core agile principles and practices you need to achieve success, regardless of your ultimate role in the organization. In addition to this quality training, BigVisible offers comprehensive coaching services, so if you get stuck or find that you need more help applying what you’ve learned, you can call on us.

    Frequently Asked Questions

     

    Can I buy a seat with a Purchase Order?

    Yes, we will accept purchase orders. Please email us at Training@BigVisible.com to arrange for payment via a purchase order. Unfortunately, due to the timing of payments, we can not extend the "Early Bird" discount to individuals or groups paying by purchase order.

    Do I get a copy of the slides for a class I take?

    All participants will get a printed copy of the slides on the day they show up for a class.

    Do classes count as credit for Professional Development Units (PDUs) for Project Management Professionals (PMPs)?

    Yes, our classes are relevant to the project managers and eligible for PDUs. BigVisible is not a Registered Education Provider (REP) of the PMI, and as such PDUs should be claimed as part of Category IV (Other Education Providers). The general guidance is that every hour of relevant content within a class counts for a PDU, as such, a 2 day class would count for 16 PDUs.

    How do I get my certificate and who issues it?

    Students taking classes offering a Scrum certificates (Certified ScrumMaster and Certified Product Owner), will receive their certifications from the Scrum Alliance. Included in these classes is a one year membership with the Scrum Alliance. Shortly after completion of the class, participants will get an email from the Scrum Alliance indicating they are no members. This membership includes access to exclusive content and the ability to print a copy of any Scrum certificates they have achieved.

    Is there a test I must take to get my Certified ScrumMaster?

    The Scrum Alliance will begin to administer a test for people pursing the Certified ScrumMaster designation. This test is being implemented on October 1st; any participant completing their CSM class prior this date will not need to take a test.

    What are the benefits of taking a class to learn about Agile & Scrum as opposed to simply

    Reading a book or other sources of written information about Agile & Scrum are valuable resources and we strongly encourage potential students to leverage these resources. Our training classes are designed to reinforce concepts with in depth simulations and robust discussion. All of our course blend lecture, practice, and reflection. This allows participants to gain a much more profound understanding of the subject matter.

    What do I need to bring to a class?

    Our classes are designed to be a stand-alone experience and do not require participants to bring anything to a class other than an open mind and willingness to learn and perhaps something to take notes.

    What time do classes start and how long do they go each day?

    Unless otherwise stated, all of our classes begin at 8:30 and run to 5:00 PM, local time. Classes generally include a break for lunch around noon, as well as a brief break in the morning and afternoon.

    What happens if a class is cancelled?

    In the case that a class is canceled by BigVisible, participants are entitled to transfer to another class or receive a full refund at their discretion.

    What is the cancellation policy for a seat I've already purchased?

    Public training participants who cancel their registrations up to 30 days prior to the registered class will receive a full refund of the registration fees paid. In the event of a cancellation within 30 days of the scheduled class, registrants will receive a credit towards a future class. If a cancellation is made within 14 days of the scheduled class, the participant will be charged a 30% cancellation fee and the remaining registration fee will be credited towards a future class. Cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice prior to a class start, or registered participants who do not attend the training without providing prior notice, will be not be eligible for a refund or credit and will be charged the full amount of the registration. All cancellation requests must be made via email to training@bigvisible.com . BigVisible reserves the right to amend this policy at any time as well as review cancellation requests on a case-by-case basis in the event of family or health emergencies, hardship cases etc.

    What is the average size of a class?

    Our goal is to keep classes large enough that there is meaningful interaction among participants, but small enough so that everyone gets the attention of the instructor. Generally speaking, we aim to keep most classes sized between 8 and 16 participants. We do cap classes at 25 participants.
