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.
Scrum is the fastest growing Agile project management approach and this course provides the Scrum framework, how to apply Scrum to your projects, and how to navigate the cultural change necessary to implement Scrum. By the end of the 2-day course, you’ll be eligible for membership in the Scrum Alliance™ with the designation of Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) and will have the background to begin your journey towards increased productivity, faster ROI, and improved value to your end customers through Scrum.
