Learn how to effectively use Scrum
Whether you’re new to the agile world or someone who has experience using Scrum, certification improves your knowledge base and arms you with the necessary skills to expertly guide your team to success.
Increase career opportunities
As one of the most requested professional certifications by employers, the CSM certification will expand your career opportunities. Additionally, having your CSM increases your salary offers compared to your non-certified peers.
Improve leadership skills
As a Certified ScrumMaster, you’re tasked with guiding your team and ensuring effective collaboration between team members. You’ll know how to protect your team while motivating and ushering them to success. You’ll also be cultivating skills that are beneficial in any leadership role.
Expand your professional community
When you obtain your CSM you become part of the largest agile community of Scrum enthusiasts. Your new community of committed professionals can provide knowledge, support, and guidance throughout your agile journey. Mingle with other agilists in User Groups and get inspired at our Scrum gatherings for which you get a discount.
Influence organizational change
An organization with highly qualified and certified professionals is more likely to implement change and adopt Scrum. Holding a Certified ScrumMaster certification demonstrates your knowledge of this agile framework, providing decision-makers with the confidence that you understand the nuances and outcomes of implementation.
Pursue professional development
At Scrum Alliance, we value the learner’s journey and believe that journey never ends. As a CSM, you’ll have access to all of the resources you’ll need to build upon your agile knowledge. You’ll also get the chance to earn Scrum Education Units® (SEU®) to demonstrate that your knowledge and certification are up to date. Additionally, after one year of work as a Scrum Master, you can take your skills to the next level with the Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM) course and begin your journey toward becoming an agile coach or trainer.
