    FINALLY AN EVENING CERTIFICATION WORKSHOP TO BETTER ACCOMMODATE BUSY WORK SCHEDULES - The certification workshop will run from 6-10pm on the evenings of September 22-24.  We will likely finish early on the last evening.  An innovative and collaborative workshop that enables Certified ScrumMasters® to help project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework.  It is an outstanding and fun workshop - come be a part of it and prepare for the CSM certification exam.

    Instructors - Chris Doss and Mike Vizdos

    All CSM courses are taught by Trainers approved by the Scrum Alliance. 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.
