Scrum Alliance Certified Team Coach® (CTC)

Overview and Journey

“I grew as a person and a professional. It never felt like it was about the certification itself, but being on a guided learning path to become a better version of myself.”
  ~ Raquel da Silva, CTC


The natural next step in the journey for an active Certified Scrum Professional® (CSP®-SM or CSP®-PO) is to become a Scrum Alliance Certified Team Coach®. As a CTC, you’ll work with Scrum teams, stakeholders, and management to improve performance and outcomes. Unlike a ScrumMaster, a CTC can work across multiple teams. And unlike a Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC), a Certified Team Coach focuses on a subset of an organization in a project or program, or across multiple teams.

If you have demonstrated experience, knowledge, professional collaboration, and skills, it’s time to explore becoming a CTC, a certification that offers a recognized credential to qualified coaches who can effectively impact department, project, and program agility.

Certification Via Coaching Program
One of the many advantages of being a Scrum Alliance CTC is that you can recommend someone to attain a CSM® or CSPO® if that person has already been provided 25 hours of in-person, one-on-one, or small group Scrum coaching (eight individuals maximum). The person you recommend will be eligible for (a) a Certified ScrumMaster® certification if the person you recommend passes the CSM exam, and/or (b) a Certified Scrum Product Owner® certification if you, as the CTC, hold a CSPO certification.
