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.
The ScrumMaster Certification Course introduces the concepts of agile project leadership and how to apply Scrum practices in software development teams, using the Scrum framework. Successful participants will become Certified ScrumMasters ®, a first step in the journey toward skilled leadership of projects, using Scrum.
The course format is hands-on exercises and discussions with some lecture to define terms and concepts. Ample time is given to share the instructor's real-world experiences on a wide range of projects. This course explains the Scrum basics such as managing the product backlog, planning the sprint, tracking and reporting progress through the use of burndown charts, and reviewing the sprint. Following the successful completion of the course, each participant will be eligible to sit for a test administered by the Scrum Alliance. You must pass the test to become designated as a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM). The class includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where exclusive ScrumMaster-only materials and information are available.
This course is taught by a PMP certified instructor, and PMPs may file for up to 14 PDUS under Continuing Certification Requirements' "Cat B: Continuing Education."

Note that as of September 1, 2012 the Scrum Alliance requires that all CSM class attendees must also take and pass a test before they can receive the CSM designation. You will have 90 days from the end of the course to take the test. The cost of the test is included in the course pricing.

This course is intended for team members and managers involved in projects who may assume the ScrumMaster role. Typically, the ScrumMaster is a project manager, team lead, or development manager, but may also be a business analyst or any member of a Scrum team. In large organizations, it is recommended that Directors who oversee project teams or functional areas also participate.
