Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®)

Certified ScrumMaster

As a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®), you’ll help the Scrum Team perform at their highest level. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions. Through the certification process, you will learn the Scrum framework and gain an understanding of team roles, events, artifacts and rules.
 

Benefits of a ScrumMaster certification:

Expand

Expand your career opportunities across all industry sectors adopting Agile practices

Demonstrate

Demonstrate your attainment of core Scrum knowledge

Learn

Learn the foundation of Scrum and the scope of the role

Engage

Engage with Scrum practitioners committed to continuous improvement

 

In addition to fulfilling the role of ScrumMaster, your CSM certification gives you a two-year membership with Scrum Alliance®. Join local user groups and online social networks, gain access to deep discounts on Gatherings, and more.
 

Requirements:

The first step toward your CSM is to familiarize yourself with the Scrum framework.

Then, attend an in-person, two-day  (16 hour) CSM course taught by a Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST®) where you’ll get a comprehensive overview of how to organize and support a Scrum Team. After the course, you’ll need to pass the CSM exam. After you pass the CSM exam and accept the License Agreement, complete your Scrum Alliance membership profile and enjoy the benefits of certification.

Incorporating Agile principles and Scrum practices into your world of work takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement.
