Keep Learning, Stay Competitive

Leverage what you learn about agility to maintain your credibility as an agilist. 

You are a member of the most educated, practiced organization in the agile community. To maintain those high standards — and your competitive advantage — log in to your Scrum Alliance account and ensure your Scrum Education Units (SEUs) reflect the articles you have read, classes you have attended, and opportunities you pursued in the world of agility. 

You need to input those SEUs or obtain a secondary Scrum Alliance certification to qualify to renew your certification every two years. The math is easy: One hour spent educating yourself in Scrum equals one SEU. To see what qualifies toward your renewal SEUs, click here.



Renew in Three Easy Steps

Step 1


Continue your education with articles, courses, and agile events that count toward the Scrum Education Units® (SEUs) you need to renew.

Step 2


Let us know what you read, attended, and learned about agility in the two years since you earned your certification by adding your SEUs.

Step 3


By renewing your Scrum Alliance certification, you maintain your credibility and invest in a non-profit that serves the world-wide agile community.
