    This Course employs practical exercises, Case Studies and discussions to provide everything that a ScrumMaster needs to know to be able to facilitate a successful Scrum Project.


    Certification Process:
    Participants who complete the two-day course will be required, within 90 days of the course date, to take an on-line, 36 question, multiple choice exam. Upon successful completion of the exam, you will receive official designation as a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) by the Scrum Alliance, along with a two-year membership of the Scrum Alliance. This is the first step on the road to Certified Scrum Practitioner (CSP) and further Scrum education. Your membership includes additional access to Certified ScrumMaster material and information on the Scrum Alliance website.  Exam objectives, exam administration and retake policy information is available on the Scrum Alliance website under the FAQ section.
