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.
This public workshop provides attendees with an overview of the Scrum methodology and how to apply Scrum practices in software development teams. Delivered by Michele Sliger and Doug Shimp, both experienced ScrumMasters and prominent Agile community contributors, 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. More advanced topics are also covered, including user stories, estimating and planning, scaling, and transitioning.
Following the successful completion of the course, each participant will be designated as a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM). This certification includes a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where exclusive ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.
This course is taught by a PMP certified instructor. PMPs may file for up to 14 PDUS under Continuing Certification Requirements’ “Category 4: Other Providers.”
