    The rules of Scrum are easy and readily available. Implementing them is hard. Learn the essentials of working as a Scrum Master in this interactive, certified, two-day course. Taught by Jeff Sutherland, Co-Creator of Scrum, our CSM features the historical context around how Scrum was developed, the latest data and research, and real-life examples of success and failure.

    Our CSM students come from a range of disciplines and with a wide breadth of experience, from those new to Scrum, to those looking to improve their practice. At the class, you will learn how to be an effective Scrum Master, improve teamwork and productivity, launch new products faster than previously thought possible, and demand and receive excellence to deliver products faster with higher quality. This class is highly interactive and includes a combination of theory and hands-on exercises.

    At the end of this course you will know how to build a backlog, plan a release, run Scrum meetings, estimate effort, and track and report progress.

    On completion, students will be Certified Scrum Masters and receive a one-year membership in the Scrum Alliance. You can apply for 16 PMP PDUs with the Project Management Institute, satisfying 16 of the required 21 training hours for the new PMI-ACP (PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner).

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.
