     Presented by GoodAgile, which has trained and certified more CSM's in India than any other company.

    Taught by a highly experienced agile leader and coach
    Alan Atlas has been in the technology industry since 1980, first as a hardware engineer at Bell Laboratories, then as a UNIX kernel hacker at MASSCOMP, and finally as a technical manager at various levels at a number of different software companies.   As a Development Manager at, Alan managed the development and release of Amazon S3, a web service that offers Internet-connected storage for web applications of all kinds. The S3 team adopted Scrum for their project, and this became a career-changing experience for Alan, who followed his CSM with CSP, CSC, and CST certifications. Alan became the first Amazon Scrum Trainer/Coach. He left Amazon to pursue Agile Training and Coaching full-time with Rally Software, and then after a few years returned to product development at Scanbuy, Inc., where as CTO he uses his Agile knowledge and experience to create a winning engineering organization.
    Our students love the training
    97% of our students say "the GoodAgile CSM class was worth the time and money - even ignoring the value of the certification". And 98% said they were likely to recommend it to a friend or colleague. We get comments like this one from Ashok Rai in Bangalore all the time: "This was the best training I have ever attended!". The content includes best practices and advice for using Scrum with multi-location / distributed projects, project estimation and delivery-date planning and tracking in Scrum, fixed-price / fixed-date projects in Scrum, Scrum tools, and scaling Scrum for large projects or organizations.
    Our prices are the best available -- guaranteed
    Book 30 days in advance and pay Rs.24,500 + tax for the course and certification. Or book less than 30 days ahead and pay just Rs.26,300 + tax. We also offer group discounts. We believe our prices are the best available, but if you can find a lower price for a CSM course in the same city, we guarantee to match it. (Details here.)
    If you are not 100% satisfied with the course, it's free
    If you are not fully satisfied with the course, we will refund 100% of what you paid. (Details here.)
    You get a free copy of Mike Cohn's book "Succeeding with Agile"
    All attendees at our public CSM courses receive a complimentary copy of Mike Cohn's "Succeeding with Agile Development Using Scrum." This book, published in 2010 and priced at US$35, is widely considered the best all-around guide to Agile and Scrum.
    You get two Scrum minibooks by Pete Deemer
    In addition to the Mike Cohn book, every attendee receives two high-quality, bound Scrum minibooks: The Distributed Scrum Primer (an in-depth guide to distributed development using Scrum) and The Manager and Scrum (a guide for managers and executives leading organizations that use Scrum).
    You get full online access to class materials + exercises + useful resources... forever!
    Unlike many classes, we provide full electronic access to the course materials, which you can use to train your colleagues. You get the course slides, plus many of the exercises, along with step-by-step instructions for leading them. Plus you get access to a variety of useful Scrum resources and templates. And your access is valid forever - so as new materials are added, you will get access to those as well.
    You receive 15 PDU's from PMI
    Our CSM course includes 15 contact hours of training, which can be submitted to PMI for PDU credit if you are a PMP.
    Last but not least... you get Planning Poker cards!
    Every attendee gets two packs of high-quality Planning Poker cards, enough for a team of 8 people. Our cards include printed instructions for use and four colors per deck.
    Early-bird price (30+ days before course): Rs.24,500 + tax
    Regular price: Rs.26,300 + tax

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.
